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?


The experience weekend should help with the decision either way. When I did my campus visit I met a handful of people from LA at Kelley. They should be able to give you insight into getting back to LA if that's your goal. No debt is always nice though.

I would wait on scholarship information from USC before deciding; if what I've read is correct, they have been handing out substantial awards lately.

That said, it would be great to have you in our class at Kelley in the Fall of 2013!

Admittedly, I'm biased as I will probably matriculate at Kelley (choosing btw them and Ross), but I have not heard a lot of positive things about USC Marshall lately. Their employment-placement prospects seem not great, especially when considering the geographic limitation of jobs in and around Cal / SoCal -- which in itself is not a bad thing at all, but given the cost of living out there, I would be worried about making ends meet on a $90k salary assuming the debt and opportunity cost. Kelley is also somewhat regional -- I think most schools outside the top 5 or 7 sorta are -- but if you're okay with, say, sticking around the Midwest, then Kelley's (already decent) post-grad salary prospects will get you further I would imagine. Their *placement* stats -- i.e., % offered or accepting positions within 3 months of graduation -- have also not been good the past couple of years. I've also heard mixed things about USC's teaching quality and administration. Search around the GMATClub forums for more sentiments, but to me, Kelley should be the way you go :-)

Anyway, looking forward to meeting you (hopefully) next weekend. Curious, but what's your background?

Was there anyone on the fence that the experience weekend swayed towards matriculating? I've already put down my deposit but the weekend definitely reassured me that I made the right decision.

Hi

This is Siddharth, wanted to know whether there is any harm in taking a retake of the GMAT , Does Kelley take the best score.


Thanks and regards,

Hi Siddharth,

Kelley does consider the best score. There is no harm in retaking the GMAT if you are sure that you under-performed in your previous attempt and that you will score more in the next GMAT.

All the best!

Looks like domestic full time applications are up 30% this year. Pretty awesome

That's great news, glad more people are recognizing Kelley as a top choice. One of the best points I heard made during Kelley's whole sell weekend was that recruiters are using Skype interviews way more now which allows them to interview at more schools (instead of having to travel to a smaller handful of the top schools)

Can't wait to start in the fall - making it official today, just got word from Ross that they dinged me off their WL, sucks, but saves me from a difficult decision. I'm going into healthcare so Ross vs. Kelley w $$/assistantship would have been a toss up.

Have you visited both McDonough and Kelley? I will say I was much more impressed with the Kelley alumni in asset management that I spoke with compared to McDonough. Both are good schools though, I got completely different vibes from the students at each school. One wasn't necessarily better than the other, but kelley suited me much better.
