I currently have a few offers but I am just going to focus on these two. I am still waiting to hear from Georgetown and Stern but I can decide later.

I am a 32 age asian male. I work at PwC tax providing tax services to my real estate clients as well as some internal tech consulting services to different projects.

I have $20K per year from Goizueta. I am not sure about how much scholarship from KF in my account (I just sent out an email to confirm).

My post MBA goal is to be in management consulting field.

My undergraduate is from a NYC based city college. I have a master of accounting degree and I am currently a CPA. My GMAT is 720. I prefer to work for traditional management consulting firms, such as MBB, AT Kearney, OW, and LEK. I will not try to apply to Deloitte or PwC consulting (no way - I am from there and I know the struggle there).

Money to me is not a problem so I don't really worry about scholarship, although the amount of scholarship may change my decision if both programs are pretty much the "same".

Location wise - after MBA, I prefer to be back to NYC in the short term. I don't mind where to do the internship.

I also don't really care about the "fitting" since I am really adaptable, and I believe, people who go to MBA schools are mostly nice so I won't choose a program simply because the people there are "nicer".

I know there are quite a few facts above. Feel free to leave your thoughts. I am very appreciated.

Hey Huahua1987 ,

MBB recruits more from UNC than from Emory. This is my first hand experience. So, if money isn't an issue for you, go to UNC.

Good luck :-)

I like it. This is a very straightforward answer. I do lean towards to UNC since if my target MC recruiting goes bad, I could switch back to my real estate industry (UNC has a strong real estate program).

Thanks man!

Hey congrats on your awesome admits. I agree-UNC is the better option here especially since you want to come back to Northeast. Also class size at around 300 is better. Most of Emory's class stays in south (58%), where as UNC is more geographically spread, and has a good amount of alumni network in Northeast. Same consulting firms will recruit at both schools, but I also agree- UNC might be a bit more of a target for MBB. All in all, I would definitely choose UNC here given your goals. Best of luck in Chapel Hill!

Congrats.! I did my master of accounting at UNC and had some MBA friends (I also work in RE tax at another big4). MBB out of KF is difficult, but possible. I'd see if you get accepted at Stern, as Stern will give you slightly higher chance. Good luck.!
