Kellogg v. Sloan (v. Yale v. Haas)  [#permalink]

New post 21 Dec 2016, 09:44
Somehow managed to get into all but one of the schools I applied to: Kellogg, Sloan, Haas, and Yale. All without funding (but Haas has separate funding application, which I'll be filling out soon). I always had expected to get into 1-2 programs tops, so I feel very lucky. Although now I need to make a carefully considered decision.

My stats: 730 GMAT. 3.9 GPA. 4 years in econ consulting.

My goals: transition to MBB. I'd like to, say, spend 3-5 years working at Bain, ideally specializing in business transformation. From there, I'd like to work in executive roles of struggling companies.

I'm planning to go to all the admit weekends, talk with students + alumni, etc. At this point, however, I am about 80% for Sloan, 19% for Kellogg, and 1% for Haas/Yale. Sloan appeals to me, because of its technical acumen, the access to MIT/Harvard/Cambridge, and a more 'nerdy' culture. I imagine Kellogg would make me better rounded (esp. soft skills) and have a more social student body.

Any thoughts are greatly appreciated. Good luck to you all!

I don't really have insight on how much better/worse each of the options are vs. each other in recruiting since I only applied to Kellogg among the four. However, one big plus for Kellogg for me as an international student is that Northwestern itself will loan money at pretty good rates (at least vs. other options for internationals). If funding is a concern, it seems like they're pretty helpful in this regard (NU loans, which I'm referring to, are available to US admits as well). While I don't know if Sloan, Yale, or Haas have this, I found the availability of this from Kellogg to be a huge plus point for them, even if I haven't made my final decision

Sloan and Kellogg would be the natural choices - both of them send 30%+ into consulting companies (Kellogg actually a bit more than Sloan, which perhaps means you would have less competition at Sloan). I like the overall MIT name/clout slightly better as it is better known worldwide and more recognizable. I understand your attraction to Sloan. I would have picked too ;-)

Yale is also strong in consulting by the way.
