Hello All,

I've been admitted in the schools above and am a civil engineer currently (international from Canada) looking to get in consulting post-MBA. Below are my comments on the schools, please let me know yours ->

Tuck: No scholarships received - it's also expensive. However, forums/rankings say it's the best option and it's Ivy League too.
NYU: Most expensive from the lot, more finance focus and I'm not really interested in the NY "commotion".
Cornell: Strong Ivy League school as well. Got $25K scholarship over 2 years - however, more finance placements post-graduation and I'm debating about the scholarship vs choosing Tuck
Goizueta/Emory: On paper seems like the best value for money (was my safety school). Got 80K scholarship and post-grad compensation seems as good as any of the other schools here. However, is there a trajectory difference?

Other than that, if you have experience - let me know how consulting jobs vary in the North East Region vs South (if I choose Tuck/Cornell vs Goizueta).

Thanks for your help!

Based on the above, Tuck seems like a no-brainer to me (particularly if you want to work in North America graduation). It consistently ranked above the others and 80k in the grand scheme will be irrelevant.


I've also heard that Tuck's consulting recruitment is strong. Have you been to visit to get a feel for the place?

Tuck is the best option here, and it's not close. It's a tier above all the other schools on your list and it's particularly strong for consulting. $80K isn't insignificant, but you'll make it back quickly if you're doing consulting.

That said - Tuck is also a pretty unique place, so make sure it's a good fit!

One more for Tuck. The consulting placement will be considerably better.

Thanks everyone for the votes and suggestions. I'm leaning towards Tuck strongly too so thank you for the affirmation. I just got an offer to UCLA with 40K scholarship - does that change the group sentiment at all? I see that UCLA might have an edge for tech but what about for general consulting?

Congrats on UCLA Admit. I would not favor Anderson program even with 40K vs. Tuck unless you want to be in SoCal after you graduate (e.g. you are from there, etc). Anderson does not have good on campus recruiting and definitely nothing like Tuck would have with companies coming on campus and reaching out to the students. For consulting and esp Good consulting jobs, rank matters and esp if you need a good internship coming from a non-consulting background.

Also, Tuck as a program has a great community and very tight (though remote); Anderson will have a heavy SoCal vibe (convertibles, shorts, night clubs - if that's your type of thing, then I would definitely consider Andrson as Tuck will have none of these :cool: )

Being Canadian, is your life a bit easier with H1B/Work permit/Visa fun?

Thanks for the insight into recruitment! Yes I was definitely attracted to the California sun (being from the frigid North lol) but definitely not priority enough to choose over a better education.

And yes I waited an extra year in Canada so I can get my citizenship application going before leaving for the US. I hear it's really a struggle with the H1B otherwise!
