New Haven, anyone know it? - Page 2

I spent 2 years in NH-- very happy ones, as it turned out.  A very small-scale, liveable city that isn't too expensive. The corridor between Orange and Whitney is where the so-called Graduate Ghetto dwells.  A lot of 3-story Victorians that have been carved into apartments.  Some nice, some obviously lived in.  Between there and the hockey rink is quite safe, as is the main body of the campus.  Drift too far off in one direction or another and it gets scary.  No need to do that, however. What program are you going for?
B school and to do my Masters in Music performance

If you're considering a business school, depending on acceptance, I would probably recommend other Ivy's besides Yale... Harvard and U Penn would be preferable, as well as Dartmouth (although it's not situated in a city) and if you're not married to the East Coast, Stanford is a great school that will also allow you to get a top quality music education as well. No knock on Yale but it's not in the league of these other schools, at least not yet.

Agreed.  The Yale School of Management (why don't they call it a business school?), while certainly not bad, does not possess the same stature relative to its peers as does the College, Law School, and Med School.  It does have the best dining hall on campus, however.

There isn't one decent Ivy besides Yale with a music program to speak of. (Columbia has teachers from Juilliard, but the competition there is negligible). I've never heard of anything about Stanford, and I'll look it up but I'm almost 100% it has nothing. I've heard several things about Yale's B school. Of course there are those like the people on this website who hold on for dear life to that 5 school thing, and there are those who have told me that Yale is excellent, and on par with Wharton and Bragging, due to the fact that they use a lot of active or retired execs to teach, instead of the LSE way of teaching economic theory. However, the 1 year program at Bragging looks really interesting, and I think that the 5 school maxim has some value to it, given that brand name recognition is as important as it is in mainstream society with clothes.

Well it depends what you want, a top quality music education or a top quality MBA... Personally I wouldn't recommend doing both at once, it could be a bit difficult to accomplish both, especially while trying to network.

It just depends what you're trying to do with your MBA, Yale just doesn't have the alumnus base of Harvard, Wharton, Tuck, or even Sloan, etc. If you're really looking to go into business, you should be looking at one of the top 5 schools if you are able to get into them... Yale seems to be able to make the top 10 from time to time but it's not a consistent member of the top 5 like Harvard, Wharton, Northwestern, Dartmouth, Stanford, Columbia, etc.

I wasn't exactly going to be doing at once, but was rather thinking of a city to study in. New Haven, unfortunately, looks a little drab. Boston seems to be like a better option.

Boston is a great city to study in, I would still take a look at Stanford as well.

Maybe I'm going to scrap my idea of going to B school in the same city as my masters. Last time I was at Stanford, my dad was lecturing there and I distinctly remember how beautiful it was. I'm getting sick of east coast weather, so maybe it's time for a big move.

I'd recommend it, you could always go to Peabody, Julliard, Oberlin after you finish your MBA, etc. I do agree that Stanford's campus is one of the prettiest in the nation.

I'd get my MBA after a masters in music.

For music, you probably already know about IU Bloomington, but I thought I would mention it anyway.

Indiana has unfortunately lost a lot of what made it famous. Golding died several years back, who was their big violin draw. I think Gelamir still teaches there on occasion... it's not what it used to be.

Dunno where you came out on this, but SOM still seems to have a lot on the ball (this is now 9 years after I left). In some fields, it is among the very best places to study. In some countries (especially the Asian ones that think the US only has 5 universities), the Yale name opens a lot of doors. I'd do it again.
