Booth vs Kellogg

I'd appreciate any help deciding between these two schools for someone who wants to pivot into MBB Consulting.

Does Chicago, in general, offer better networking opportunities and open more doors? I like the idea of studying in a city like Chicago, but I'm also very aware that Kellogg offers the better program and is more highly regarded. When it comes to employability in Consulting, Kellogg also is slightly ahead. Any redeeming points for Booth?

These are both very strong programs for MBB, and the bigger differences between them are culture and location. A large majority of people in this position would pick Kellogg. Chicago is a more hard-skill school and more competitive. Arguably it has a more flexible course design. However, Kellogg is stronger for teamwork and leadership, and I think those are skills that many MBA candidates have increasingly deep needs to needs to develop.

Thanks for this insight! Certainly puts things into a different perspective. Taking this into account, plus Kellogg general reputation, I guess it's a straightforward choice, save for someone who's dying to be in Chicago.
