I purposely left out H/W/S because I think 99.9% of people who get in would choose one of them, excluding a full ride to another top 5 school. So let’s get an idea of what’s popular this year. If you want to explain your reasoning go for it. Feel free to choose your dream school even if you didn't apply or just limit it to the schools you applied to, just note how you picked in your reasoning.

I used the 10 schools following the top 3 in the US News ranking. The order is from US-news and does not reflect my personal opinion as to ranking in anyway. I left out schools below those not because they are bad schools but because I couldnt add more

I voted for MIT (Sloan) with Berkeley and Ross a close second. Ross seems to be the best fit for my Manufacturing/Operations goal, but I think Berkeley's general management program would give me all the tools I need to be successful. Just need an interview invite

I voted for NYU. I felt most comfortable with it than any other school, to be honest. Its relaxed and laid back and suits me well.

I voted for Tuck with Ross and Haas close second/third. I think Tuck's small size is a really good fit for me, but there are advantages to Haas and Ross as well (and I liked them both a lot!).

Pretty sure it would be Chicago for me. My target is buy-side equity research, and I'm not sure there are many programs better than the GSB when it comes to this. Not to mention the sweet facilities.

For me, it came down to Stern and Columbia - I am actually probably within equal distance to both - roughly 15 minutes via train. I voted Stern because they have a part-time program and Columbia does not. How's that for a reason? hahaha

I chose Kellogg, even though Chicago is my other top pick. I am impressed by the academic credibility of the GSB, but still attracted by Kellogg because of the kellogg folks I met, who I related to a lot more than I did to the GSBers I met.

But well, whoever wants me in your list can have me...

Picked MIT because of its strengths in entrepreneurship and innovation, and alumni ethic I have come across.

I didn't vote. I think its pretty obvious that I want to go to Emory, so I didn't apply anywhere else, including the posted list. But, I've always been an outlier, and I find myself there again.

I picked Berkeley. Columbia would be a close second. But I've really fallen in love w/ Haas...now let's see if my R2 app will convince the adcom that it needs to reciprocate...

I am stuck between Kellogg and Ross as I honestly still don't know which school I will pick if I am admitted to both. I ended up voting for Ross only because I visited Ross, spoke to current students on campus and was very impressed by the program. Kellogg is less familiar to me, so I went with the other school.
I will be happy if I am admitted to either one.

Out of that list, Columbia. In fact, I am surprised at how many people have had Columbia as their top choice in this poll.

What about London Business School and INSEAD ? I picked GSB (and am not ashamed to admit it). For my aims, its the best option in the list along with LBS, with NYU a close second.

Chicago is not all that surprising, I think it has the most applicants and its top ranking per BW has a huge draw to it. I know people here aren't as bad as other boards with rankings but I am curious how big of a factor that has. Personally I am trying not to be swayed by rankings at all (thats tough at times though) because that seems to change year by year (except the top 3 in US News).

I am actually fairly surprised that Columbia is so high considering the lack of discussion. Then again it is a great school in a highly desirable city and has a great rep in finance where a lot of people hope to move into. (though Pelihu had a great write up on the internship hunt that has a little opinion on that in the current student forum).

By the way I voted Kellogg because I got in there so now I wont be disappointed if I get dinged at GSB and MIT. If I get in that creates a whole new dilema and probably wouldn't be resolved without going to admitted student weekends.
