AlixPartners out of MBA: NY vs. CHI/Dallas?
I at a top-10 b-school in the midwest and got a full-time offer in AP's Enterprise Improvement practice. I have the flexibility to choose my office. I am international and the goal initially was to be in NYC - but I realized its much more expensive, and has higher taxes (compared to Dallas which has no state tax, and even Chicago, which doesn't have a city tax).
Is NYC worth the extra taxes/cost of living?
