Hi Bryant,

I've just got an acceptance from Tippie College of Business, University of Iowa. Scholarship details would be revealed in early summer, so at this time, I just need to reserve my seat with a $300 payment.

Although I researched a lot about this program, but based on your experience, what would you like to say about it, in context of employment opportunities for International students? IT/Technology Consulting is my immediate post-MBA goal, and I plan to work 2-3 in the US before returning back to India.

Secondly, I've got a "preferred applicant for Scholarship" email from the University of San Diego MBA program. I can't find the school in any rankings, but if I get a good scholarship and do an MBA from there, I'll most likely be getting a job in Silicon Valley, which is a hub of Technology/IT.

Is the trade-off between ranking and location worth it?

Best Regards,
Eeshan

Eeshan-

better to go with the ranking in this case. If you preferred field is IT, you will not get much kudos on the West Coast from San Diego State in that field. you would be competing with all the top West Coast schools and the comparison is too easy to make. If you come in from U of Iowa, not only is it not comparable as a West Coast School, it is in the top 50 ranking, so is likely to be a better sell. Having said that, i would contact the Career Placement Center in each school and ask them how many students get jobs in IT and specifically which companies recruit for such jobs at their schools.
