Well what the hell was I supposed to do? They all had badges.

Got an application ready for Indiana's Kelley School of Business and that is it.I looked at NYU and I didn't care for how commercial their executive program seemed (it just felt like a money maker), they have a few hundred students per cohort at 144K, so it does make a lot of money.I looked at UPenn (Wharton) and I just couldn't see paying 172K for a biweekly commute from my house near Mohegan Sun (in CT) to Philly, great school, nice program, but too far and too expensive.I looked at Duke (Fuqua) and it was just to expensive (130K) and required too much international travel for a program outside of the top 10, it is clearly a good school, it is just out of that top echelon. It kind of falls into the same grouping as Ross, Kelley, Haas and McCombs right outside of the top tier.

No offense, but I wouldn't go to Ross on a bet. Great school, but I can't get over the whole scUM thing.I told my kids that if they had a full ride to scUM or I had to pay their way at OSU that I would gladly reach for my checkbook.

I have to kidnapp my HBS friends to get them away from that cult.Sloan is the dorkiest and will teach you the most. At this stage in your career that is the benefit to you. You aren't going to be going on ski trips to the Alps or be putting together Red Carpet parties during the Oscars. And if you are commuting it's not like you are going to be spending all day at company presentations nor that it would benefit you.

It is just a different value and you have led a very different career than your average MBA applicant. Harvard’s case study process is intensive and highly educational. My HBS friends work and are challenged, it just isn’t quant work. The idea is that you pay people to do the quant. Either way, I get why Sloan is your choice and it makes 100% sense to me. It’s certainly the most unique of all the top MBA programs by far. Far. Far.Unless things at my new job go so well I just say eff it altogether, who knows.Also, Sloan's Sports Analytics group is the baddest ass thing in existence

I completed my interview with MIT, it went pretty well (I think). I am still awaiting a decision from MIT, but I have decided to accept the free MBA from Indiana. The only way I will reconsider is if MIT comes through with an admission and 100k in scholarship money.Put my deposit down at Kelley on the 1st.
