I have a tough decision to make, and I'm looking for any input I can get. I can either attend Tuck full time, or complete my MBA part time on the weekends at Kellogg or Booth. I'm wondering which makes more sense? Alternatively, should I wait another year to apply to some higher ranked programs?

Some info to consider:
  • Currently make ~150k a year, and I like my job, but don't know if it is for me long term. Additionally, there aren't many natural exit opportunities.
  • Company will pay completely for a part time MBA.
  • I really want to give Management Consulting a shot. Tuck seems like a great option for that, but by no means a guarantee that I'll get into a good firm. I'm also on the younger side (25 currently) so that could make things harder as well. I do really like the idea of being fully immersed in a program.
  • I have a good GMAT (770), but low undergrad GPA, which could hurt for consulting internships.

Is Tuck considered a prestigious program or does it pale in comparison to HSW? Will part time programs provide some opportunities if I choose to go down that route (short-term/long-term)? I can't find any meaningful stats on that end.

I'd do Tuck if I were you. Easier to make a career transition with a full time program than a part-time one. Tuck has good placement at top consulting firms

agreed that if you want to get into consulting, you should go with tuck full time. they're more or less on par with the rest of the full time M7 schools when it comes to consulting recruiting
