For MBB consulting where would you go amongst these schools?

- I have a preference for Kellogg but keen to understand where others lean.
- No scholarship anywhere (yay for debt!).

PS - I'm a bit of a lurker but will be posting my MBA application experience soon!

Very amazing job!

All of the programs place well and have on campus events with MBBs.

Tuck is almost religious a out consulting but At the end of the day I doubt your job chances of placing with MBB’s are all that diff.

I would choose based on gut and other factors. E.g. the trip that Kellogg does before the school starts or living in Boston (I would probably pick Chicago) or the tight community at Tuck or Tech at Sloan or if I wanted to live in Chicago, or if you had a bunch of friends in north east or a network or your grandpa went to MIT, or your Ex was a Booth grad.

Congrats!!!

Yes, would be pretty hard to mess this one up ;-)

i'd go booth or kellogg here. sloan is the weakest for consulting recruiting and tuck places well in consulting but is overall not as strong as booth and kellogg. I'd make it a point to go to the booth and kellogg admit wknds and choose on fit.

Seems like all schools are on par in consulting recruiting as per 2016 employment report that each school posted. Kellogg percentage is based on 2017 employment report that they posted. Obviously Booth and Kellogg have a bigger class size so obviously number of students going into consulting will be higher.

Kellogg- 32.9%
Tuck- 36%
Booth- 27.5%
Sloan- 30.5%

For MBB, you will have opportunities at all these schools.

Kellogg has the edge in terms of pure numbers, but then you do face a lot of consulting background competition in your cohort.

I'd agree with bb on this one - go with your gut.

If you haven't asked for scholarship, please do. But do it politely and humbly.

I would go with Kellogg - it offers a great development platform for consulting - i.e., the best mix of quantitative/qualitative problem solving and leadership development. I worked at McKinsey for several years and Kellogg MBAs were, in my view, the best fit there (HBS grads also did very well).
