thats a great dilemma to have. I loved Tuck but i loved Haas as well. Try to negotiate some scholarship money from both schools if possible. Either way there's no wrong answer.

Schools rarely award scholarships after the fact/admission - only sometimes sweetening the deal but maybe... there are a few threads about this.
Congrats again!

Hi All,
I was so lucky to be accepted into two great MBA programs, Haas and Tuck. However, deciding between the two of them is proving to be quite difficult, so I'm looking to leverage the wisdom of the crowd. A little about me:

I grew up in the Bay Area and my family is out there, but I loved Hanover too
Undergrad at a top technical institution in the Southeast (engineering degree)
Four years of experience in manufacturing/ operations at a major energy and chemicals company in Texas
MBA Goals: Learn business fundamentals, build strong network, develop global business acumen
Post-MBA Career: Private Equity (if possible since I have no IB experience) with Consulting as a close runner-up
Post-MBA Location: Long-term strong preference for Bay Area, but open to short-term (1-2 years) elsewhere

Thank you all for your time and help. Happy Holidays!


Hey gatechbells!

Tuck has a big network in the Northeast, but smaller in the West Coast.
It is hardly possible to break into PE without prior investment management/banking experience.
Tuck is a great school if you want to enter general management or consulting.
Technology and investment banking areas are possible, but harder to get into.

If you have any questions about Tuck just let me know.
Congratulations with great results!

agreed with other posters that PE is going to be close to impossible so you'll likely need to go down the consulting or IB path. tuck is stronger in consulting but i'd choose here more on fit than anything else

Re: Haas vs. Tuck [#permalink]
Happy holidays and thank you for the input, everyone. Pretty amazed by the current poll results (9 Tuck/ 7 Haas), which highlights the facts that it's a nice problem to have and there is not a wrong choice.

I only discovered PE in the past few months, and it seems like an IB/ Consulting background is a pre-requisite, which several people have confirmed on this thread and others. Therefore, I'll likely recruit for Consulting, but try to get involved in whichever school's PE club.

Thanks again, everyone!

i assume that all else equal it's going to be easier to get an IB/consulting job in SF coming from haas than tuck due to location but i'd speak with people at both schools to confirm
