I got invites from both of them and need to make a decision soon. Any thoughts ? If I choose NYU, my loan for cost of education and living would be practically nil. Also, I have the advantage of location as I stay in New York city.

For those keeping score at home, it looks like:

Stern - 2
Tuck - 0

How set are you on consulting? From my research, it appears easier to break into MBB from Tuck than Stern. Then again, Stern doesn't release very detailed employment reports, so it's very hard to tell.

I am currently in I.T consulting and looking for good opportunities in management consulting post MBA. I believe both have good presence in consulting field. But even I concur that Tuck ranks out better. But is that substantial w.r.t the monetary advantage that I would get at Stern?

I don't think anybody can tell you that. I'd suggest reaching out to the consulting clubs at each school. Perhaps they will share with you (if they know) what percentage of MBB applicants got first-round interviews. After all, once you're in the interview, no one will care where you went to school.

Don't quote me on this, but I think MBB at Tuck recruits mainly for Boston office. With that said, its quite possible to get a NYC office offer.

If I was in your situation, I would pick the .

Tuck is very strong in management consulting. NYU is good as well but not as good as Tuck. I heard that Stern is not a core school for Bain (But many students at Stern can still get offers).

There is much more to the world of consulting than MBB. Most people (regardless of school) who want to get into consulting do not go to MBB (especially for their internship). I understand that those are the top 3 firms, but sometimes I get the impression that people think they are the only 3 firms and that it's a given that if they recruit for consulting that's where they will end up. It's an unrealistic expectation that gets perpetuated by conversations like these.

OP, look at the full range of consulting companies recruiting at these schools (both on campus and off campus). Talk to students who recruited for consulting internships at both schools. That will give you a better idea of how likely it would be to make the career switch from either school. Also understand going in that there are many more positions available for full-time consulting jobs than for summer internships. Best of luck with your decision.

Saya,

I am in the exact same predicament as you (live in NYC, got scholarship $$, accepted to Tuck), except I am planning to lever a stint in management consulting into a middle-market private equity role long-term. My fiancee works as a recruiter at one of the MBB, and I can assure you that Tuck > Stern when it comes to top-tier management consulting and frankly I don't think its very close. Stern is definitely not a tier-1 school when it comes to MBB recruiting, but people do get placed there. Your probability getting placed is most likely higher at Tuck, although you do have to factor in mix (i.e. there are most likely more people at Tuck aiming for MC than at Stern). If the goal is purely to break into MBB, than I personally think Tuck is the choice.

I have also kind of made my choice now to go for Tuck. Just waiting on how much financial aid I receive from Tuck! since I am an international student, the finance also matters especially when no private bank in this country wants to loan out w/o a US cosigner...

True that mb/b/b aren't the only firms, but its certainly a good indicator of a schools consulting strength. If a school places well with m/b/b then they will likely place well with any consulting firm. It's a good relative measure for those interested in consulting and deciding between top tier schools.
