Cornell Dyson vs UMich Ross vs Washu Olin

Into marketing / entrepreneurship / social impact !! Hoping to pursue consulting in the future !! money is not the MOST important factor, i could afford to attend all of these schools

CURRENT MINDSET:
(ranked also from 1-3 in amount of financial aid given to me / biz school ranking from US news)

* Cornell Dyson
* smaller private school with lowest acceptance rate (~200 kids in c/o 2024)
* Ivy League + amazing connections / alumni network generally
* one of the big 3 consulting firms doesn't hire from Cornell, but they still send the same percentage of kids to a big 3 firm as UMich Ross // less consulting opportunities
* vibe wh the current community the most
* #2 in both cost and ranking


* UMich Ross
* bigger public school (~400 kids frosh year and then 100 transfer)
* good connections / alumni network but mostly within ross
* sends a lot of kids to the big 3 consulting firms !! (on par with UPenn Wharton) // have a lot of consulting centered clubs / events and the big 3 regularly visit the school
* feel like i might get lost within the huge community / don't vibe wh the greek life vibe as much
* #1 in ranking and #3 in cost (didn't give me too much financial aid)


* WashU Olin
* smaller private school (~150 kids in c/o 2024)
* good connections and alumni network generally
* also sends a lot of kids to the big 3 consulting firms !! (very similar to Ross) it also seems to have a very solid curriculum that supports consulting // I currently am a Dean's Scholar finalist and entrepreneurial scholar, so I will most likely be already at the top of my class
* i like this location the least, but the people seem nice !!
* #3 in ranking and #1 in cost (assuming I receive the full ride from being a Dean's Scholar)
