Got into two very respectable programs. Absolutely love the Darden program for its close-knit nature but wary of its rigorous schedule leaving me not much time to network/ recruit.
At the same time I don't mind going to work in Austin, Dallas or Houston if I take up UT. Wish to try my hands at starting-up post my MBA, so a school with the network, peers (quality and willingness to help) , and to some extent brand matter to me in that order.
Goals -> Technology (think Apple, Amazon, Google, FB to start with..and entrepreneurship in the long run).
Location -> Prefer TX / NC / CA / GA
Seek -> Lifelong network and upto some extent a Brand tag!
Ranking -> Not sure if it matters much to me, as long as I am able to achieve the above 3.
Cheers, thanks for all your thoughts !
PS : Am waiting on Booth (Wait-listed) which is my dream school. Needless to say, Booth above all else if admitted !
Ah well, may those few last steps that remain unfold.
