Question about which prior schools I need to disclose [#permalink]

Several years ago, I attended a Masters in Finance program, but did not graduate. I attended the program only to have another chance at recruiting for investment banks, so once I received an offer, I left the Masters in Finance program and did not graduate. Am I required to disclose this to any MBA programs I apply to? If I do not, would that be seen as unethical and/or grounds for dismissal/degree revocation should I be admitted and graduate?

You should disclose , else the Adoms would be wondering what you did during those years. You should use the optional essays to explain your circumstances.

It is always preferable to mention 1 or 2 schools above but near to the current school's rank AND one or two below it.

I totally agree with vivek6199. The adcom will see there is a gap in your resume , if you do not mention the MS. But what you should pay attention is how you are going to address this issue carefully. You do not want the adcom say "ok he left, once he gets a job, so he might do the same". You can work with a consultant about your story maybe in an optional essay.

I've had applications that ask for ALL institutions attended, and others that ask for only institutions in which a degree was granted. I think that as long as you do not have a glaring absence in your resume timeline, it will come down to how the application asks the question. Just my .02
