Hey thanks so much for the time you took to answer me.

I re read my message and it seems difficult to give an opinion since I am neutral in so many aspects, but I am leaning towards LBS because of A) Europe, B) City C)Vibe with the school, but it is always a tough choice.

There's a huge chance we'll be seeing each other, thanks again!

INSEAD! tremendously happy I did. Am in Chicago right now doing an internship and must say Kellogg's campus is amazing as well.

Let me know if you want to know something.

Best.

That's awesome, I'm so glad you feel that way! I am applying to a few M7 schools given my interest in Non-Profit/Social Sector Consulting and Entrepreneurship, but I'm also struggling with how to value/include EU schools based on this.

Would you have any advice/inputs on the non profit consulting, and the entrepreneurship strengths of EU schools? It'd be a huge help to have your thoughts - thanks!

Hi - great to know you are doing well!! I am in a similar situation you were earlier. How easy was it to transition into consulting? Do you think 10 months was an issue to get placed in the US/Europe into MBB? How competitive is it in INSEAD to get that spot?

I would go with Kellogg in this case (and my views may be biased as I am a current Kellogg student )
Going through your situation you're not absolutely convinced if you wish (and can) to work in EU or in the US. To my best understanding getting a job in US after LBS/INSEAD can be considerably difficult. There are number of reasons for that, most important being the visa issues. Even if you do an exchange in Kellogg still it would be substantially difficult to get a job in US. On the flip-side, Kellogg MBA would still be well recognised in EU ( at least better than what LBS/INSEAD will be perceived in US). Hence, Kellogg will will give you access to more opportunities, from a career standpoint. Of course, there are other factors to be considered here such as culture of school, long-term goals, personal reasons, \$\$ etc. but since these are subjective, I would leave them to you!

Hope that helps.

Hi, another biased view for future applicants (I started this thread and chose INSEAD over Kellogg and LBS).

I went to France, got an internship in VC in the US, got the offer and I am now working in Europe. While it is true INSEAD is not "street known" (if you're talking to someone in a bar people won't have a clue), I'd argue that as a general rule people who hire know what it is, so wouldn't quite name it as a big issue.

I'd say biggest difference is that US MBAs allow students to stay and work for a year after graduation. So from INSEAD, getting a job in the US will mean more hustling from your side (except you're going for consulting, which will probably make it the same anywhere), but it is definitely possible. In my experience, INSEAD was highly regarded by the people who hired me.

On the opposite example, I'd say it is equally hard, and it will demand the same hustling from your side, as the US schools don't make big efforts to attract European recruiters (again leaving consulting away from this). So for concrete, global company example: Amazon the US -> you'll find more Kellogg guys / Amazon in EU -> You'll find more INSEAD guys.

So brushing up:

-If you want to be in the US, don't make your life harder and go to Kellogg
-If you want to be in EU/UK, don't make your life harder and go to INSEAD
-If you want to do MC, pick whatever you like best cause if you're good enough you'll get the office you like
-If you are picking what you like, I just don't get how you wouldn't choose INSEAD, where you can do Singapore, France Abu Dhabi and/or US all in one year. What a spectacular year! I want to go back! (Of course I am not biased )
