Any money involved? Duke is probably the better overall program at this point in time, but GTown has its strengths and appears to be on the rise.

partial scholarship to Duke.

Have not applied to G-town, hence the question - deciding if it is worth the effort (eveyything by essays is already submitted, even had an interview)

It would be hard to come up with a general reason for picking Gtwn over Duke except perhaps someone seeking a joint degree at Georgetown's Walsh or JHU's SAIS in DC.

I am in similar dilemma. Applied to Georgetown and Duke for the Class of 2014. Got admission at both schools. Gtown provided 10k scholarships for each year. Currently, I live and work in DC area so location-wise and scholarship-wise Gtown sounds attractive to me. However, I would like to hear from the forum on whether to go for Duke or Gtown. I think both schools carry equal names locally but when it comes to the network and accessibility to some top-notch employers, career services, academics, and network of students and alumni, Duke seems to have higher ratings among MBA seekers. Would like to hear from you guys. I need to decided soon as my first choice programs (Booth and Johnson) has waitlisted me.

Thanks,

I'm about 90% sure you should pick Duke. The only reasons to go to G-town would be:
-you absolutely love DC and never want to leave
-you hate Durham
-you didn't like your experience at Duke (assuming you've visited)
-you want to work in federal consulting or in some sort of government position

The scholarship money really shouldn't matter...what do you want to do post-MBA?
