Hi everyone, I've been a lurker on these threads over the past year and found the advice given on this forum very useful as I prepared for my MBA applications. I've been fortunate to obtain admits to Stern, Darden, Booth, Tuck and Kellogg. I've not been given a scholarship at any of these options. I'm an Asian looking to move into NYC/Asia BB after my MBA and eventually moving into PE. I know Booth and Stern are traditionally the finance schools but I'm inclined slightly towards Kellogg and Tuck at the moment because of the environment and the fit when I visited campus - I do not expect finance recruiting at Kellogg or Tuck to be particularly challenging either given that they are core schools for most of the BBs. Given my options and my career goals, I've currently excluded Darden from the running.

Between Kellogg and Tuck then, which should I choose?

Hi current Tuckie here, I can't comment on banking recruiting for Kellogg but it is definitely strong at Tuck. One advantage potentially may be Tuck's location. Sure it is not in NY like Stern but Tuck is close enough that a lot of my classmates drive to NY on Fridays to meet with the banks and Tuck alumni every week.

PM me if you have any questions about Tuck.

wow congrats on all the admits. if you're between tuck and kellogg I think you really can't go wrong with either for your job goals. Other than geography, another big difference to think about is the class size and which you think you would prefer more

88% of people who recruited for IB last year at Kellogg obtained offers. I have friends who dropped out of consulting recruiting because they weren't great at the consulting networking events, and most of them have a **** ton of interviews in IB, and many have offers already, so I expect the figure to continue this year. NYC banking is very easy to get nowadays from top 10 schools.

Plus Kellogg is a ton of fun!

Seems like Kellogg is the poll favourite here. mgg234, can I ask if the banks ask for students grades? I know that Kellogg does not have GND, while Tuck has some limited form of GND.

Kellogg and Tuck are both great schools, so you should evaluate other criteria such as location, fit, etc. My brother faced similar dilemma after R1 and decided to choose Kellogg. He based his decision after evaluating location (Kellogg is fairly easily accessible compared to Tuck's rural environment), and talking to Kellogg's Finance Club. My brother felt that Kellogg offers great blend of fit, community, location, and access to top notch IB / PE / VC.
