I think the question describes what I'm after - curious what people's thoughts are.

Obviously this is not the sole basis for picking a program, but let's imagine we had to rank the top 15 business schools (inclusion based on overall ranking) in order of their social cultures as a tie-breaking metric.

You can have fun at literally any business school - depends what your definition of fun is?

Going out in a major city? Columbia/NYU, HBS/MIT, Kellogg/Booth
Big sports? Michigan, Duke, UVA.
Tuck is in the middle of nowhere, but they might have more fun (theme parties, etc.) than all of the above. It's what you make of it.

FWIW, a friend of mine is at UT-Austin (ranked about 17th, so slightly outside the scope of your list) - I can't imagine a more fun place to spend two years. Perfect weather during the school year, football/hoops, outdoor bars on 6th street, ACL/SXSW, tons of live music.

Totally agree with all the above, but would add UCLA and USC (ranked 16 and 20 on USNews respectively, so maybe out of your scope). LA is really fun and both schools seem really social.

Philly is also a major city in its own right and really close to NYC, so would throw in Wharton
