Emory VS Purdue VS Notre Dame [#permalink] New post 16 Feb 2007, 20:55
I have to make a tough decision out of several options. Really want to have you guys' ideas:

1/ Emory: scholarship of 25K per year, which makes my anual tuition about 12000.
Advantage: Atlanta city. Emory is ranked highest. Starting salary is also high. Finance and Consulting is good.

2/ Purdue: Scholarship 27K per year (including assistantship, so I have to work for them 1/4 time for 6K per year). I have to pay just about 4000. advantage: purdue is famous of Technology and Quantitative, which are also my strengths.

3/ Notre Dame: scholarship 25k per year, so I have to pay about 8K.
Advantage: well known. Good at finance, consulting and marketing.

I want to focus on finance and/or consulting.
please give your thoughts...thanks guys

Before the rankings-obsessed chime in, I will duly fill my role as the ambassador from the land of touchy-feely. The money is more or less equal, in the grand scheme of things. What feels best to you? Where did you feel the most connection? What kind of experience are you looking for?

I am not that up on any of these schools, so I can't tell you much there.

But cool on you for having three great choices, and money to boot.

I would say Emory all the way.

Purdue(basically a tech/operations school) is out since you want to do finance/consulting

ND(basically a finance school) will not offer anything in management consulting and it won't hold as much weight with the top I banks(assuming that's where you want to go) as will emory.

Do you have a preference of where you want to work geographically?

South, Definitley Emory

Midwest, (Chicago), i'd say Notre Dame if you want to do Finance, maybe Purdue if you want to go into operations.

If geography doesn't weigh into your decision, then, Emory.

That's funny, I think being an international student should make you more selective when it comes to location.

Would you please elaborate your thoughts?
I thought that since I'm an international student, I can easily accept to study anywhere because I don't have any any attachment (family) to a specific region, and because I can work anywhere upon graduation.
