Emory/USC w/$$$ vs Kellogg with none! [#permalink] New post 04 Apr 2011, 18:30
So here's my story:

Male, Age 26
Hospitality / Real Estate Industries
Interested in majoring in marketing, branding, and strategy
Interested in getting a general management rotational job upon graduation, preferably with a hotel or entertainment company, but intrigued by big brands as well

I've gotten into the following:

Emory w/ 60% scholarship
- great in real estate
- loved the atmosphere

USC w/ 25% scholarship
- the company I most desire to work for is the #1 recruiter there
- LA is great

Kellogg w/ nothing
- debt

Whatever non-scholarship money is needed, I am taking out in loans, as I have no savings to speak of.

My question is this--- Is Kellogg THAT much a better name that going there is worth the extra $80,000 or so in debt?

I'm excited about all these programs, but feel so lost ! :shock:

Thanks for all your thoughts in advance!

Kellogg, hands down. Unlike the law or medical degree, the value of the MBA by and large is tied to the brand of the institution. Kellogg is a huge brand. It is something you will have for the rest of your life that will set you apart and give you immediate credibility and respect (to a degree) in the professional world.

Do you guys think USC is worth the extra $70-$80k in debt it would take to go there?

Your help is greatly appreciated!

Where would you go if both places offered $0?

Sounds like you are much more excited about USC than Emory. If it just about the $ differential, $80k over a lifetime is small potatoes. Go to where it will help propel you to where you want to be. And seriously, the USC alum network is no joke, I mean it's like a support group for overpaying!

I kid I kid. But seriously it is very strong, and c'mon you know you are going to have 10x more fun and build way better networks at USC. Especially in hospitality, which is a cousin to entertainment, the ubermecca epicenter of LA.

You have worked so hard to be where you are today. Don't pander right at the finish line to save some cash...
