Turning down HBS for Wharton?
Wondering if this has ever happened? (barring something like a full ride to Wharton) When I was applying, H didn't even rank in my top 3 choices. I loved Stanford, Wharton and MIT, HBS just seemed very uptight and outdated to me. The other 3 schools are pushing innovation while HBS cases still seem to revolve around outdated companies.
Understand H has the marginal prestige, but if I'm not trying to go to elite PE/VC, hate the case method, is there any point? My heart is saying that I will thrive more in the Wharton environment (the SF campus seems awesome, the flexible curriculum and no classes on Friday really appeal to me)
I got a bit down into the ranking hole, and am trying to take a step back and see whether all the prestige chasing is really worth it. If anyone here has turned down H/S for any other schools based on culture/fit, let me know!
