Are MBA programs outside the top 50 "worthwhile"? [#permalink]

I'm brand new to the forums here and didn't see a post similar to this so I just wanted to get some feedback from the community (I hope I don't get flamed)...
As I don't have the statistics to get into a top program, I'm considering MBA programs outside the top 50 (William and Mary, Va Tech, American)... What is the consensus on programs of these caliber... would it be a substantial benefit for getting a job? Is it worth the investment? It is really top 10 or bust? any thoughts are appreciated... thanks
As with most questions in life, the answer is: it depends.
Some questions that may help you think about the decision
- Are an international trying to work in the US via an MBA or are you a US citizen trying to move ahead in your career?
- Would you be paying full price or are you likely to get a scholarship or employer sponsorship?
- In what region do you plan to work after graduation?
- In what industry do you plan to work after graduation?
- What expectations do you have on an MBA in terms of: post graduation distribution of salaries, access to certain types of jobs, probability of landing a job 3 months from graduation?
- What do you expect your experience during the MBA to be in terms of: class size, diversity of backgrounds, access to speakers and conferences, networking possibilities, etc.?
Final decisions are in: Berkeley: Denied with interview Tepper: Waitlisted with interview Rotman: Admitted with scholarship (withdrawn) Random French School: Admitted to MSc in Management with scholarship (...
