Emory with 60% $$ vs USC with nothing [#permalink] New post 08 Apr 2011, 10:40
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
USC w/ nothing (I had originally thought 25%...was sadly mistaken :cry: )
- the company I most desire to work for is the #1 recruiter there

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

Your help is greatly appreciated!

I would look at each school and see where you think you would be more happy learning. Each school may use different techniques. You could be miserable for 2 years at USC and have a great experience at Emory, or vice versa. Talk to the students and use what you know about yourself

For these two schools, your first consideration should be location. USC alums tend to stay in the Los Angeles area, so that's where your network will be the strongest. Emory is a little more diverse, but the bulk of their alums stay in the South.

If your dream job is to work media & entertainment or real estate in LA, USC is probably worth the money. If you're still uncertain about your career goals and location, I'd choose Emory and save the extra $70-80k.

If you do choose to matriculate at USC, tell them about your scholarship at Emory and see if they're able to help you out.
