Choose between schools (need advise) [#permalink] New post 20 Dec 2010, 14:38
I was recently accepted to the following schools with the following aid. I have them listed according to what school I would prefer (regardless of financial aid). Which should I choose?

1) Vanderbilt, $0/year
2) Rochester, $20k/year
3) SMU, $23k/year
4) Purdue, Full Ride
5) George Washington, ?/year (don't know aid yet)
6) Case Western Reserve, $16k/year

I want to end up working in cities like Nashville, Indianapolis, Columbus, etc. as a corporate financial analyst. My wife will be looking for an HR job while I am in school.

You need to explain why your schools are ranked that way. If the difference between 1 and 2 is negligible then go with 2. However don't let money be the deciding factor unless it is essentially a tie.

honestly I'd go with purdue considering your goals, its a free ride to a good school. Vandy isn't THAT much better.

It depends upon your financial economy.

I will also go to Purdue if I had the opportunity. It is a free ride and once again that is too good to pass up. Go with Purdue

I am currently in 12th grade and I am confused between BBA and BMS. Which is a better course to opt for? Also how good are BBA courses in abroad?

According to me, BBA is a lot better course than BMS. I have myself pursued BBA and hence I can tell you that BMS concentrates on analytical and logical oriented studies, while BBA course concentrates on core elements of business which is more helpful. Moreover if you happen to take up MBA in the future, BBA would prove to be very helpful to you. BBA courses in abroad are pretty good, they give you a lot of exposure and also offer internships.

If you are sure you want to work in Nashville, this is a no-brainer. No amount of $ at Purdue should sway you. Owen is the way to go.

Full disclosure: Vandy student here. (Anchor Down!)

That said, if Nashville is not the end-all-be-all for you, Purdue should stay in the running.

I recommend visiting both Vanderbilt and Purdue before you make a final decision. Meet with the Career Services at each school. That will give you the best idea of what each place has to offer.

Good luck with your decision!
