Hey guys

I've gotten into both Stern and Tuck, and have a few weeks to make a final decision. No scholarships for either.

Absolutely love the Tuck community more since people seem a lot closer and tight-knit there, which is the kind of environment I'd want in a program. The people at Stern are actually very warm and love to help, to my surprise.

Looking to pivot into banking after MBA (I know I should go to Stern since it's so strong in banking) but I do do love the Tuck community; living in NYC means something but can be offset by the Ivy league name. I guess my question ends up to be, is IB recruiting really hard if it's non-core, like Tuck; also does Stern has absolute advantage in terms of banking recruiting?

Appreciate everyone's help and insights!! Thanks :heart

I think both would work fine for you and it should be more of a fit decision. Tuck puts plenty of people in IB(approx 10% of class). Stern will be more convenient for recruiting.

Where would you be more likely to make the most of the experience and enjoy it?

Thanks for replying. I worked in M&A (valuation) in one of the Big Four (in the US) for a few years so I should be fine in terms of modeling/tech prep. Want to specialized in TMT going forward so also interested in banking in the West Coast. Also I am an international student.

I think I would enjoy living in the NYC more but like I said it can be offset by the Ivy name. Yea i agree Tuck has a good placement in IB but half will be off campus recruiting so I am curious about the IB recruiting for non-core school like Tuck. Also Stern puts more in BB I would assume.

Congrats! Curious why you didn't apply to Haas or Anderson? Recruiting for the west coast will be tough, not just due to low alumni count but logistically. Can't really go wrong here, Tuck places well for those who want it, but you will cast a much wider net with NYU (more EBs, etc.). I'm confident you'll be successful either route given your background. Good luck!

I say go to Tuck, you just might have to travel a little bit more for recruiting. but Tuck's name is better in the long run.
