I vote Fuqua... I feel you have a better chance of breaking into IB with the Duke name. Also, 100K is going to be marginal if you do IB for a few years (and especially if you're in it for the long haul and make managing partner ). But if cost is really a big concern, I recommend contacting Duke and letting them know about the UNC full tuition... and seeing if they are willing to offer you any scholarship to help defray the cost.

I actually just had the same exact dilemma and ended up choosing UNC. I disclosed the situation to Fuqua and they will reconsider you for merit scholarships but not on the basis of what other schools are offering (at least that's what they said). I'm interested in marketing and feel long term I will do just as well at UNC and am happy I won't have to take a job just to make sure I can pay off my debts.

I think you have two really great options and can't lose either way (though I hope we will see you at Kenan-Flagler). Good luck!

I decided to attend Kenan-Flagler. I just couldn't pass up the cash. In my case the freedom of not being constrained by a mountain of debt outweighed the value of the Duke brand.

Congrats! See you in the fall!
