Currently working in lower-MM PE. Looking to move up market in the future, possibly mega fund but who knows. I know how unlikely that is. Applied to and interviewed at Booth, Tuck and Stern, dinged at HBS and Wharton. I was going to apply to Columbia but now I'm not sure if it's even worth it. Booth and Tuck are my top two right now, and if I get into Booth I'll probably go there. Columbia didn't seem that great when I visited it TBH.
I guess from a professional standpoint, is Columbia worth applying to given my goals and assuming I get into Booth or Tuck? Tuck isn't ranked as highly but I've heard a lot of good things about how they're positioning themselves with PE so I wasn't sure at this point.
