Paul, I would like to hear your thoughts on two schools, Booth & Tuck. I was accepted into both schools; now, I am struggling to make a decision. How do you view both schools and which one provides the better longterm value?

First, congrats on these options - fantastic results.

It's obviously tough to tell someone where they should go without knowing what makes you tick, what you want for your career, etc. All I can probably do that will really help is tell you how I view these schools for strategic purposes entering the application process, which will probably carry over a bit.

With Chicago, I'm sure you know all about finance, flexible course work, etc. But the big thing about Booth is that there is an "edge" that is really good and healthy, but present nonetheless. There's a spirit of challenging yourself and raising your game that you don't always see in a b-school. The best thing about Booth is how social it is has become - with the Harper Center coming in a decade ago and then the South Loop providing a residential community - so that compliments the more competitive streak.

With Tuck, you are looking at more of a "summer camp" vibe in the way everyone connects and really dives into a collaborative experience. It's almost a cult, in a good way. Tuck has underrated ties to cool industries in NYC and I think it does the best of blending theoretical (case method) and practical (experiential) learning models. It's small and way the hell out there, but you can't really get a more intensely personal and connective experience.

So it sort of comes down to whether you'd rather have collaborative with a dash of big city competitive edge and brain-stretching, or you'd rather have collaborative with a healthy scoop of fun/friendly.

Both schools are amazing, both have big university brand names, both are among my very favorites. You honestly can't go wrong. If it's about something personal - geographic employment considerations, industry, so forth - I have no idea, obviously. But for culture considerations, see the above.

Hope this helps.

Respectfully,

Paul Lanzillotti

Thanks for the response Paul, but what if you are indifferent to either environment and awarded full scholarship at Tuck to \$40k at Booth, does that changes the dynamics of the decision making process. Also, if you are unsure about your career path and so would like to keep you career options open, what school provides the best exit opportunities? Yes I did look at the employment stats at both schools and I must say that Booth wins, in my opinion. Is that a fair assessment? Finally, how do you see the long-term brand and value of both schools? I know you are not a clairvoyant, but if you had to guess what school would still stand out 20 years from now, what school would you then choose?
