Where should I go? Mendoza, Booth, Fuqua, or Kellogg [#permalink]

Hi, I've been a long-time lurker and have just gone through the application process. I was admitted to the 1 year programs at Mendoza and Kellogg E/W accelerated track, as well as the 1.5 year evening MBA programs at Booth and Fuqua. My goal is to finish as soon as possible as I want to go back to med school and finishing in a year is much more preferable to finishing in 2 years. That said, my long term goals are in entrepreneurship, and I want to be able to have a good brand behind me for my future endeavors--wherever they may take me. My prework experience involves bio/pharma work as well as running my own (successful) startup.

Just to be clear, I definitely won't be doing recruiting for any consulting/finance jobs since I'm finishing my medical degree and then doing residency with my ecommerce startup on the side, so I don't know how well the ranks are in terms of quality. I will say that I did not feel I fit in at either Notre Dame or Duke, but I felt like I was at home at Booth. My hesitation is their academic reputation as being hard in terms of grading--I need to maintain good grades (A- or better) as my parents are paying for my degree. I'm also worried about cost of living, because while I have generous parents, Notre Dame is the cheapest school of the 4 and they have very affordable housing on campus.

Any guidance from people who have more knowledge and wisdom than me would be much appreciated. As everyone in my immediate family is in law and medicine, and all my friends are in either law school or journalism school, I don't really know what is my best option.

Tough.
Tough choice.

You are in a great position.
Cannot go wrong with any of them.
Except Mendoza(ND).

Though Mendoza's parent organisation (ND) is a huge brand in itself, in terms of MBA-branding Booth,Kellogg and Fuqua are miles ahead of Mendoza.
Mendoza isn't in the same bracket as them.

Your Quote ->I will say that I did not feel I fit in at either Notre Dame or Duke, but I felt like I was at home at Booth

Since you did not feel the fit => Cross off Fuqua.
MBA is a huge investment.You want to be at a place you feel you fit in.

That narrows it down to Kellogg and Booth.
Both have a tremendous reputation.


The decision should depend on how you feel about Kellogg.
If you don't feel you fit in.
Go for Booth.
Else if you get the vibes at Kellogg-> Tap that offer.


You can also leverage admit letters from the other schools for a scholarship negotiation.


Regards
Stone Cold

It's between Kellogg and Booth. The 1Y program at Kellogg is tremendous and you will be with the best and brightest at Kellogg. You seem to have a strong affinity towards Booth so I would suggest you go there otherwise it's Kellogg to me if this was a blind recc

Also look at big picture (University Brand). Neither Kellogg nor Booth have a university brand as big as Duke.

I attended Stanford and so it great. Kellogg (Northwestern University) overall brand sucks and Booth (U Chicago) is good.

Kellogg is an M7 program mate. It's fine to be a Duke homer--even if you didn't go there--but I'd tone down all the bashing of other schools, it's pretty ridiculous.

Just a little caveat on this JohnMcGill guy. He joined the club 3 weeks ago, although according to him he finished his MBA already.

He is a Stanford grad, but he only posted a handful of times, all in Duke vs. some school question, of course in favor of Duke.

Just a troll. Cheers!
