Confused about college selection. Please help [#permalink] New post 03 Feb 2014, 21:38
Hi Cindy,

I have got admit to 3 universities till now- ISB , Kelley (Indiana) and Krannert (Purdue).

My post MBA goal is to get into Operations consulting. I am targeting firms such as Deloitte.
The alternate career path is Operations manager at majors such as Amazon and Apple.

I am an Indian. Funding my education is a stressful situation. However, I am willing to incur debt for quality education. I am totally confused what to take up?

Purdue is known for its operations strength and it has offered me substantial GA , basically can be considered a full ride.
Kelley has not offered me a scholarship or a GA . It would set me back by 100000$ .
ISB is very highly rated in India but I am not really sure of the 1 year intense program and I am not particularly confident of their operations strength.

Yet to hear from Tepper.

Please advice on how I should go about choosing the college. :roll:

Thanks. The earlier I choose the more at peace I will be. It has been a long hard battle with admissions :x :x :x :oops:

I totally agree about getting the decision made sooner rather than later in this case! And congratulations on the acceptances!

On reading your post, I almost felt like you were answering your own question – as you worked through the issue, Purdue seems like a great fit, a natural choice, and the way to go (based on the info you’ve provided at least). That said, if you’re accepted at Tepper, that would be an interesting option, though most likely the funding would be less.

These are the kinds of hard decisions one wants to have! Our website has [urlhttp://www.accepted.com/mba/decisions.aspx#accepted]some tips[/url] for dealing with this "problem"... :)
