Congratulations! I wish I could have such a trouble to worry about.

I voted for Stern because stern would be my top choice.
I don't like Ross because I had enough of college town. (I didn't apply any school that is not in a metro area, even if it ranked high)
I don't like Booth because somehow I got the impression that Booth's placements are strong in the middle west. Do you want to live in the middle west? I don't.
Stern has the right program, great location, and a free ride. What else do you expect from your MBA?

Just my two cents.

thanks, drucker! it's nice to hear why you chose what you did...not too many people have been responding. i'm like 75% sure i'm going to stern.

i see you got into multiple schools yourself...congratulations! have you decided where you'll be in the fall?

Thanks. I am still waiting a couple more days for USC. If I am lucky, I will have to face the choice between USC and Georgetown.
Otherwise, I will be in DC.

KUDOS
I would say Stern... and its a no brainer. Big 4 consulting recruits just as heavily at Stern. So if the luxury brand work doesnt pan out you can always fall back on MC. This option is not given to you at the other schools. Also NYC is expensive if you make it! You can live in queens or brooklyn for half the cost and unless you are dead set on fancy meals the restaurants around nyu are dirt cheap. I always eat by there because a dinner runs me $10. _________________ Reward wisdom with kudos Current Student Joined: 02 Nov 2010 Posts: 55 Followers: 0 Kudos [?]: 5 [1] , given: 0 Re: Help! Booth vs. Stern () vs. Ross ($$)? [#permalink] ### Show Tags 30 Mar 2012, 11:29 1 This post received KUDOS Seems like you're leaning towards Stern, which is perfectly fine Just to follow up on some of the points you mentioned - Certain consulting companies hire into specific industries/focus areas, so a CPG/Retail focus is possible - There are also niche consulting companies that are de-facto CPG/Retail focused due to their specialty. For example, The Cambridge Group focuses on Growth strategy, which ends up having more of a retail/CPG focus. - Many top CPG companies tend to be outside of the NYC area (although these may not be companies that you're interested in) - If you look at the employment profile, both Booth/Ross have a more National employment profile than NYU, so I wouldn't equate graduating from either school will mean that you'll most likely be in the Midwest. This is both a function of self-selection and the employers that show up on campus, which is why I mentioned your geographic flexibility earlier. Booth/Ross is : 40% Midwest, 30% East Coast, 20% West Coast, 10% Other NYU is : 90% East Coast, 10% Other I think both schools have a luxury goods club so I suggest you contacting both to see if you can get some additional insights - you should do the same for NYU as well. All this being said, a full scholarship is a big deal and not something you should dismiss out of hand - just make sure you have all the data points before you make the decision. Good luck!

Good luck! oh yes, i've been talking to the luxury/retail clubs at each school for a long time now. i do realize most of the cpg companies are outside of nyc (mostly midwest)...l'oreal's the only one in nyc i think. i'm not really interested in companies for their locations...it's just that nyc is where all the fashion/luxury companies are at. i don't think i'll be in the midwest because ross and booth are in the midwest, but rather because a lot of the cpg companies are there since it'd be really tough for me to get into luxury in nyc out of those schools and possibly into the nyc office for one of the big 4 consulting firms (so i have a better chance of working on retail projects). i have been trying to find some niche consulting firms with cpg/retail specialties so thank you for referring me to the cambridge group...if you, or anyone else, knows of any others, that'd be fantastic! _________________ Help advise me on where to matriculate! http://gmatclub.com/forum/help-booth-vs-stern-vs-ross-129563.html Manager Joined: 06 Jul 2011 Posts: 213 Location: Accra, Ghana Followers: 1 Kudos [?]: 63 [0], given: 39 Re: Help!

Stern will also help you keep your options open after your MBA just as much as Booth or Ross. Intern Joined: 28 May 2012 Posts: 6 Followers: 0 Kudos [?]: 0 [0], given: 0 Re: Help!
