Scholarship at Johnson is 10% of total cost per year. No money offered from Tuck. I am a Canadian citizen looking to relocate to the US (preferably NY, Boston or Chicago) after graduation. I have experience in Asset Management, but am open to looking at other industries either within finance (PE, IB) or outside (ie consulting). I have visited both schools and really loved both, but would give a slight edge to Tuck due to the strong community.

Would really appreciate your insights/advice!

Congratulations on your Admits!

Both Schools/Programs will offer a good shot at Consulting/MBB. Tuck is usually meaningfully stronger in consulting - both in terms of placement and in terms of opportunities available and MBB coming on campus. (Tuck: 77 Johnson: 55 placed in consulting; Class size is the same). Tuck's alum base and community is tighter and more responsive, so you would get more support. I would personally pick Tuck - a lot more personality and recognition. Tuck's rankings sank a bit in the last few years but it's been a Top 10 program the last 12 out of 13 years.... https://gmatclub.com/forum/mba-rankings ... 99812.html

I would strongly encourage you to chat with students and attend a welcome weekend in Hanover before declining Tuck.

bb Thanks for your response! That makes sense.

Unfortunately the admitted weekends are only in April, long after the decision date/deposits are due. However I definitely agree that Tuck is the better opportunity, and likely a better fit for me as well.

I suspect that Johnson may come back with a revised offer when you go back to inform them about an alternate decision, just FYI. Not uncommon esp as they look at their R2 volume.

Curious, I am in the same boat, what is your long term goal?
I thought that Cornell was better for finance and Tuck was a better choice for consulting.

googlegmat1 my sense is that Tuck is stronger for consulting, but I don't know if either of them are stronger for finance in terms of recruiting. As it stands my long term goals are in finance (focused in asset management) but I'm still considering options. Aside from the community at Tuck, I think that the curriculum is a better fit for me personally. I majored in biology in undergrad, so I think I could benefit from a longer core program. I also really like the international experiences that are integrated into the curriculum.

What are your thoughts?

Looking at pure Numbers:

Tuck (287 grads); 50 Finance jobs; 125K average salary
Johnson (283 grads); 69 Finance jobs; 128K average salary

There are definitely more people at Johnson looking at Finance than Tuck. Finance is a pretty broad category - corp finance, IB, asset management, there are lots of flavors. Salary seems quite similar though but slight bump for Johnson. It seems if everything else is equal, perhaps you will have a bigger group interested in finance in Johnson, which is good (could also be folks who did not score consulting/etc roles settling for finance in part, hence larger number).... it is very hard to interpret jobs data :( but I do think it makes it a competitive case for Johnson for Finance.
