Hello all,

What a whirlwind two weeks it has been. I was accepted to Sloan ($40K), Booth ($60K) and CBS ($100K). I am currently in an internal strategy and development role at a large F100 company looking to switch into a large tech company for strategy or into MBB consulting. Sloan was always my top choice with its reputation in tech but Booth and CBS are both fairly strong in that as well. The money offered is making me lean towards Booth and now CBS. I have visited all three and really liked all three. Here is my thought process so far:

  • Highest ranked and on the rise (worth $40K over CBS?)
  • Strong in tech (Amazon is a big feeder) and MBB consulting
  • Nice facilities
  • Lowest COL

  • Grew up in Chicago, never liked Hyde Park or its lack of connection to downtown (no El stations, only slow bus and commuter Metra outside of campus)
  • Worried location will limit me
  • Seems like reputation internationally not as strong as the other two

  • Biggest fellowship by far, wouldn't need to take out loans. Also offers need-based scholarships (not sure if I will get any though)
  • Location provides opportunity for part-time internships
  • Strong in MBB consulting (though heard they include sponsored in employment reports but do Sloan and Booth not?)
  • Very strong international reputation

  • Lowest ranked, worried reputation isn't as strong as the other two. This is my biggest concern about CBS
  • Poor facilities
  • High COL
  • Weakest in tech of the three? (Sends the fewest to large tech companies compared to the other two)

  • Very strong in tech (it's MIT! Has that wow factor)
  • I loved the campus and city
  • Tight knit community

  • Scholarship isn't a lot, would have to take out loans
  • Seems like weakest in consulting
  • Smallest alumni base

Any input would be very helpful. Thanks!

I'll suggest to choose between Booth and Sloan, with my recommendation leaning more towards Booth, specially because of extra $$.
