Hey gang,

Need some advice. I am an international student from India (730/5yrs WEx - Marketing) and have received $$$ from both IU Kelley and ND. I also have admits from UT McCombs and UVA Darden but without any schol.

ND has given me a better scholarship package than Kelley (~10K/yr more). I know that IU Kelley is the better school, but as an international student, I know its going to be a struggle regardless of where I go and maybe reducing my debt should be the priority.

I know the basic advantages of both schools..
ND -
Closer to Chicago
Tight network
A recent big endowment (makes it easier to get more $$, once admission season is over)

IU-
Strong Marketing program (but Marketing jobs are not easy to bag for international students)
Better Ranking / Recognition
Strong clout in Indianapolis

Please let me know what you guys think...


I think it is debatable that Kelley is really the better school. Obviously, from your list UVA is top dog in the business world (though primarily for consulting); however once you get outside of the circle of people who stare at the business school rankings, ND and UT have the best name recognition of the group - by far. Also "tight network" doesn't do it for ND; their alumni network is one of the 5 strongest in the world, along with the likes of Harvard, Princeton, Yale... IU's recognition is in no way superior to ND; save perhaps in some marketing circles. My opinion would be that unless you want to work in Indy, IU is not worth 10k a year more than ND. But, congrats on having such a difficult (yet good) choice to make.

Hey guys,

Need some advice too. I just got admitted by ND and so far haven't heard a word about scholarships. I also have got an offer from Brandeis in Boston with 50% scholarship (about $38,000). I understand ND is a lot better in terms of brand name and alumni network, but Brandeis' scholarship package is very attractive to me too. It also has good reputation in new england (where I'm from).

What's your call?

Cheers

I depends on what you want to do with it. If you plan on staying in New England, Brandeis might be a better call, since ND is a somewhat expensive school. However, ND's brand name might carry you farther if you plan on moving out of the New England area.

Hey!
I am a female from a diverse background and a good academic profile. I appeared for the gmat first time last month and had a really bad experience because I got only a 610 due to some misfortune. But I got an e-mail from Notre Dame saying that I am a preferred candidate!

I was surprised because according to the statistics Notre Dame accepts score above 670 or so. How come I got this e-mail?
