Hey all. Very fortunate to have received offers from Wharton and CBS. I have been living in NY and have worked in tech for the past 4 years. I'm looking to transition to investment banking ideally in a TMT group. I know both of these schools recruit well for this. Wharton has provided no aid and CBS has provided $100K over the two years.
What are your thoughts? I'm a sucker for a good brand and naturally incline towards Wharton. I could see myself entering PE (granted, I know it's difficult post-MBA) later in life and feel the Wharton brand would help more. If my options are truly equal, should I accept CBS? I do not have much savings and the scholarship would be nice.
Also, has anyone been successful in negotiating with Wharton? They are notorious for refusing to reconsider. Any tips for navigating that conversation would be a big help. Thanks.
