Hi. I've been accepted to both of them finally. Booth and Columbia dinged me after interview . I've applied to Goizueta and McCombs as safeties and I haven't heard from them after interview yet but I'm going to cancel my apps.
So my main goal is investment banking but I'm open to consulting and tech. Location preferences: NYC, Chicago, San Francisco, Seattle in that order.
I'm a little worried about recruiting though. While Kellogg is a great MBA for tech and consulting, I've talked to students and alumni and they all said that if I wanted IB, I should reconsider because it's much like INSEAD aka a consulting powerhouse but it's very tempting plus I get to be close to my second favorite city.
Stern has mad IB placements! I checked their 2017 employment report. They have decent consulting and tech placements too but some say you'd have to hustle hard for that. Secondly, it limits me to NYC and essentially IB. Also some say it's brand is diluted now.
To be honest, my heart wants IB and I'm leaning towards NYC but the cons! So please help!!!
