I prefer Booth, by far, but that's just a personal thing as for me Ross has no brand. Still, even thinking that way, with that money in play I would go for Ross.

Something else to consider: for finding a job, having "full-tuiton" in your resume will help.

Congratulations!

Re: Booth (WL-->accepted w $$) vs Ross (with$$$) [#permalink] 24 Jun 2010, 09:22 I'm sure this has been beaten like a dead horse, but here's another data point regarding international motility. On an upgraded linkedin account ( I know, possibly a very small sample pop) I searched Booth and Ross grad's in India. I found 152 Booth grads and 162 Ross grads. In UK that figure changes to 459 and 276 respectively. Again, the strength of the conclusions you draw from this is merely as strong or weak as you believe that LinkedIn captures a significant number of graduates.

By no way a recommendation, but I would probably go with Ross. In the same way that I wouldn't go out with a girl that was flakey on me when another cute girl was really *really* into me and the flakey girl tried to get things on at late point.

Obviously your objectives and that play into things - if you want to consult, certainly go with Ross. If you have all the money in the world, do whatever you like.

Re: Booth (WL-->accepted w $$) vs Ross (with$$$) [#permalink] 28 Jun 2010, 08:07 Isn't that weird? To be waitlisted then accepted w/$$? Intern Joined: 21 Jan 2010 Posts: 10 Schools: Stanford (R1--dinged), Berkeley (R1--dinged), Booth (R2--int), Columbia (R2--dinged), Ross (R2--admit w/) Followers: 0 Kudos [?]: 6 [1] , given: 1 Re: Booth (WL-->accepted w$$) vs Ross (with $$) [#permalink] 28 Jun 2010, 09:07 1 This post received KUDOS Thanks for the additional thoughts, everyone. I know, it was just so bizarre to be waitlisted and then accepted, with, actually, substantial scholarship money. To everyone going through the application process, I'd take it as a huge sign that you really should be aiming to apply in R1, because if you get waitlisted, you might then get accepted in R2 and have much better chances to get to know the school. Obviously, it's better to submit a strong app in R2 than a weak one in R1, but it's best of all to plan far in advance for R1. Just for the record, I went with Ross. I'm positive I would have gone with Booth if I was planning on finance or consulting (they send more people to MBB every year), but I'm not. It was an excruciating decision to give up my former top choice, but I went with comfort level/culture/100% tuition in the end, especially considering the fact that the vast majority of people whom I consulted told me they don't perceive much of a difference, if any, between the two schools.
