Hi

I am an african from africa applicant and i was really interested in these two schools.
Got 30k from Tuck and a full Tuition from Darden (Both Great and Similar Schools)

Really do not know what to do now.

My main aim of going to business school is to raise funds from investors to come
and develop real estate in Nigeria or Leveraged Buy Outs in the country.

Need to make a decision

See if you can get more from Tuck, it has better brand though the network is smaller I believe.

If money matters then darden if not then Tuck.
Good luck

Congratulations!!!

I am Ghanaian and I who live and work in Ghana, so I am really happy to hear to have got into 2 great schools. And my post-MBA goals are eerily similar to yours.

Personally, Tuck is my kryptonite. I absolutely love that school. I visited there and it was awesome. There is just a warm feeling about the place even though it can be super cold. I hope to apply there this August so maybe you can give me some insights about the your application strategy since you got in.

I have a cousin who attended Darden and is now with a top 3 consulting firm in Nigeria. And he speaks highly of Darden. You have a tough choice and I don't envy you. I guess it all depends on how much debt you want to rack up after b-school. If you are looking to be involved in entrepreneurship - get investors into the real estate market in Nigeria - then I would go for Darden because you wouldn't have to worry about too much school loans when you start you own business.

I would like to have a one-on-one chat with your about you application to Tuck. How do we connect outside this forum? Thanks

Hello!
Had it been for entreprenuership post MBA 3-5 years...then Darden
If its about a division of I-banking such as LBO/ M&A etc... Tuck

Two important factors:
A)Financing and Debt
B)Weather

Thanks
