Tuck vs. Fuqua - thoughts?


I'm currently holding offers for both Tuck and Fuqua (well, and Ross but I'm less interested...)

Basically: Tuck is giving me $12k, no scholarship offer from Fuqua.

I hold US permanent residency so post degree visa is not a concern.

Aiming for Big Tech (Amazon, Apple, Google, along these lines.)

Pluses / minuses for each school? I have gone back and forth a couple of times in the past few days.

Both great schools. It might depend on what sort of role you are looking for.

In terms of Big Tech, my feeling is that Fuqua might have a very very slight edge. However, all of these firms tend to recruit from both schools and the percentages going into technology overall from recent MBA classes are comparable (23% Fuqua, Tuck 19%).

Thank you for your thoughts. After deliberation, I have accepted the offer from Fuqua. Tuck's scholarship offer was nice, but in the end the majority of the people I conferred with told me that Fuqua had a better reputation in Big Tech.

It seems Fuqua is better for big tech, and big firms generally: http://rankings.ft.com/businessschoolrankings/duke-university-fuqua/global-mba-ranking-2020#profile
Tuck is better for e-commerce and firms under 5,000 people: http://rankings.ft.com/businessschoolrankings/dartmouth-college-tuck/global-mba-ranking-2020#profile

Thanks. Yeah, I think it's the right decision.
