Well, it has finally narrowed down to these two - Johnson (Cornell) and Kenan-Flagler (UNC). I got a nice bit of money from Cornell, but just enough to be impactful but not necessarily decisive. I'm a career switcher looking to move into consulting in a specialty area that, if I'm successful, would likely point me toward DC, NYC, or Boston or, and eventually, overseas. My preference would be an internship followed by a post-graduate position at an MBB or another firm of that caliber. I've lived in NC and NYC and understand the climatic and cultural differences and figure I'd be comfortable in either Chapel Hill or Ithaca. I'm attracted by Ithaca's physical proximity to NYC, but I have friends and relatives in NC. So I'm not sure those lifestyle things are that important to me - particularly since its only 2 years. So, my choice is really going to focus on which school is most likely to get me set on the course I want to get on. Any insights would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Come to Cornell!!! :)

Obviously my view is biased and so take note of that as I propose these few points to support my conclusion:
1. Its proximity and overall alumni network likely has much stronger ties in NYC and Boston, where you are looking to explore
2. Its a place that is new and somewhat different from NC. Most people only get 1 MBA, you might as well make it as new and exciting as possible :)
3. They offered you money!!!

Lastly, I will say that the opportunities for you to do what you want to do (consulting) is certainly there. Especially if they've offered you scholarship (indicates you are likely a fairly strong candidate overall). Most of the big firms visit both schools and so I'd say the largest factor determining your success in your goals for business school is your own efforts and preparation. I can't say much about UNC's program for preparing aspiring consultants, but I can say that Johnson's is very comprehensive and encompassing. I can also say that because of the community and collaborative atmosphere, you will have help from classmates every step of the way.

Anyways, good luck with the decision, you really can't go wrong either way, but I hope to see you around next year! :)
