Does that mean full ride? So you going to Kelley then?


$$$$ = $50k scholarship and $34.5k GA position. I was not expecting that. I have a tough decision to make now.

Hi! I received an admit to Olin WUSTL and Kelley with NO scholarship. Which one should I take? Which one is the best?Olin is 7K more expensive than Kelley. But WUSTL is private and Indiana public. I'll appreciate your thoughts on that. Thanks!

There is a lot of variables that are involved with that decision: Specifically what are you trying to study/concentrate in?

All is else being equal I would go with Kelley.

Thanks golfer42. I am leaning towards Finance, but interested in CPG too. Additionally, I have no problem on building a post-MBA career in the mid-west.

If Finance/CPG are your interests, I'd definitely choose Kelley.

Just received my admit pack. 50k +34K GA. I think they have convinced me too. I am giving up the 30k scholarship at Olin and will be matriculating at Kelley this fall. I hope someone deserving gets my seat and $ at Olin.

Got the package today. Seems like the standard 50k+34kGA. Have a question though- if someone can answer. I am an international student. However, I have been living and working in Indiana for the past two years? Do i have to pay Indiana resident fees or Non-resident fees? Appreciate your reply.

Do you have a green card? Some states allow students in H1B status to get resident tuition (e.g. NY) but most require you to have a green card before being eligible for resident tuition. (and you'd have to trade in H1B for F1 to attend B-school F/T anyway)

Thanks much! That was quick. I do not have a green card neither am i on H1. Guess i will have to shell out some money despite a generous package.

20K + 34k GA... confused between Olin and Kelley... the loan product + 30k schol that Olin offered is very tempting ... moreover the college has shown progressive improvement in rankings and placements

Washington University is regarded more highly than Indiana, but as far as business school is concerned, Kelley > Olin. (Don't go just by 1 ranking, US rankings 2013)

There are so many factors.
1. Class size : You can have a relatively bigger class size and a larger alumni network at Kelley.
2. Cost: Olin is marginally costlier than Kelley
3. Schol : You have a better offer at Kelley.
4. Teaching method/curriculum: Kelley has academies/majors/minors, Olin not much!
5. Ultimately, it depends on your career goals too. Kelley is strong in Accounting, marketing, entrepreneurship and supply-chain. Dont know much about olin though.

Even I had to forego the 30k at olin for kelley. Hope that helps!

Don' t forget social enterprise/sustainability at Kelley as well... they offer a Social Entrepreneurship certificate as part of the MBA in conjunction with IU SPEA, one of the best public admin/nonprofit/environmental policy schools in the country.

I'm in at Kelley! How long did it take everyone to receive their admissions packets/fellowship offers? A little over a week?

Are you a R3 applicant? IIRC it took most people in R2 4-9 days to get their packet.

Hi all! I'm a graduating second year at Kelley. For those accepting I wanted to reach out as I will be renting my house. If you're interested please email me and I can fill you in with details, and if interested, show you the home during experience weekend/day.

Thanks!

Jon

Admitted with a hefty scholarship and coming out to Experience weekend next week. I was completely sold on Kelley and was days away from submitting my deposit, however, I earlier today I got admitted to USC (No news on financial aid yet). Though I doubt that USC will match the offer that I received from Indiana, I was born, raised, and currently live in Los Angeles. I'm specifically interested in Entrepreneurship, so the financial freedom post MBA would be very liberating, however, I'm having a hard time decided between the two. Anyone have any useful advice in selecting between the two?
