So, I'm having a hard time at a present on deciding right now between Duke Fuqua and Yale SOM (matriculating this fall 2014) for my MBA and wanted to see what everyone thinks. Pre-MBA I worked in a policy role for the US Government, and post-MBA I would like to get into strategy consulting (ideally). Undergrad I went to a top 50 school in a major East Coast school and studied Poli Sci / IR.
As far as my research has gone, Yale has momentum (for whatever that is worth, the new building, Dean Snyder, etc), but isn't as strong as Fuqua in terms of consulting placement. But I do like Yale's interdisciplinary approach and GND policy. Fuqua people seem to be a lot more chill, whereas the people I met at Yale SOM were a bit more serious, but tended to have slightly more impressive backgrounds.
What does everyone think?
