Hey fellow Owl members,

I'm a recent graduate from the Ross School of Business. I got accepted into both Harvard and Stanford business schools, but I really can't decide where to go. Please help me out. Thanks.

I would go to stanford personally. Much better weather!

I feel Harvard would be more prestigious for Business.

Stanford all the way. Aside from the weather, it's ranked higher than Harvard for Entrepreneurship if u want to get rich.

Seems like it might be easier to get Silicon Valley internships at Stanford. Housing will be a pain though.

As everyone else has said, Stanford appears to be the better option based upon the information you have given us. In the end though, the only thing that really matters is what you want and which place you'd be more comfortable in.

In my opnion, I would go with Stanford. From the people I've interacted with, while both schools tend to be a bit cuthroat about being the top student, Stanford seems to have the issue less than Harvard does.  If you want name prestige, Harvard tends to be what sticks in peoples mind as the better school, while in reality its Stanford.

Stanford, despite not having as much "fame" within the general public, it's my top choice as well
