Goizueta Vs Mccombs Vs Kenan Flagler [#permalink] New post 27 Jan 2013, 07:04
Hi everyone,

I'm an international student that coming from corporate banking background + one year long internship in biotech.

I got accepted to Emory( with a scholarship, 1/4 of tuition) this week and soon will hear from UNC & Mccombs.

I visited every campus and loved all of the schools.

I'm looking forward to concentrate in healthcare, and i will try to find myself either in consulting that has to do with healthcare or in a biotech/pharma company.

Now as far as the school goes i see UNC as my top choice, but i'm coming from a big city and Chapel Hill itself doesn't really looks that exciting to me...On other hand Atlanta & Austin look like a great places to spend 2 years.( i spent 5 days in Atlanta and 2 weeks in Austin, and really loved both cities. Austin even more)

After getting scolarship from Emory, its kind of became the most serious option for me.

Mccombs would be my first choice but they dont have any loans for internationals, so it would be the hardest option financially out of the 3.

So the big decision is between Emory and UNC, both have loans for int. students.

On one hand i have almost 20k from Emory and it's in Atlanta, on the other hand UNC is a little bit higher in ranking and very strong in healthcare and biotech/pharma.

So taking all the factors, i really having trouble to decide.

Should i go to a big city + scholarship? Or to a school with a very strong concentration and networking in healthcare?

If i'm going to get into UNC with a scholarship i think i will go to UNC.

I will really appreciate any incite.

Thanks in advance .

Congratulations on the scholarship at Emory! That's great.
However, you don't have a decision to make right now. Wait until you hear back from UNC and McCombs before you go down this path.

Congrats! The missing piece of information for me is: Where do you want to live after graduation? To me, that's more important that the schools surroundings for two years. Look at the schools employment reports and see where they tend to place their students (and as a result, where the networks will be the strongest).

It's not that i'm over optimistic, its just that i need to make decision about Emory before February 15th, which is a little more than 2 weeks...So i'm just trying to build my final decision a little bit ahead. I really wasn't expecting any scholarship from Emory. So its a little bit shifted my priorities, and know i'm trying to think about all the options one more time.

You can't go wrong with any of the three - they're all great schools!

Although I'm slightly biased towards McCombs, since Austin is one of my favorite cities.

Will you hear from either UT or UNC before 2/15? If not, it sounds like you'll be putting a deposit down at Emory just incase anyway... then you'll have a while to decide.

Edit: just saw the decision dates, both on or by 2/15. The most important part of this decision will be where you want to live. I love Austin (lived there for a bit) and really enjoy the The Research Triangle, I'm not a huge fan of Atlanta. Super personal decision though, congrats and good luck!

Hi shmirill,

I am in the exact same boat. Got into Emory on 15k per Sem schol and had my interview at UNC just yesterday. It went exceedingly well. Don't know if I should wait. Hmm..

Hi everyone again :)

So eventually my decision is narrowed to Goizueta vs McCombs ( Got wait-listed at UNC). A little update, the scholarship from Goizueta is actually bigger than i thought in the beginning, its 35k.

I already paid the deposit to Goizueta but i do feel deep inside that McCombs will be a better fit for me...

On the other hand financially McCombs will be a struggle for me as they dont have any loans for internationals. I will still be able to afford it but with less ease of mind than in Goizueta...

So in the long run, which school is a better investment?

Well... you have the potential to earn right around the same out of each. So the question comes back to, where do you want to live post graduation?
