I finally gave up on dreams of attending Wharton. Almsot everyone from my country at Wharton either went to IIT or IIM. So I'm currently shortlisting schools to apply to this year. I will apply to 4 max because I work like 12 hours and it's hard to apply to more than that.
My post-MBA career goals: Buy-side research, but I'm also open to consulting (preferably MBB) and BB/EB IB.
The schools I've shortlisted are:
However, I've been thinking about switching Kellogg with Dartmouth Tuck. Why? Because they have a very small class size, very loyal alumni according to what I've heard, they do pretty well placing in buy-side/PE, it's a match school so I'll have 2 matches instead of 1, they do well in IB and consulting as well.
But will attending Tuck instead of Kellogg hinder my chances of landing MBB in case if I couldn't get buy-side research? I know landing EB/BB IB is relatively easy so I'm not worried about that.
It would be really great if anyone here could provide some insight.
@BreakingOutOfPWM I couldn't PM you because I don't have enough points but would love to know what you think.
