I am not biased toward either school, and I think Ross is the right decision because you can graduate with money in your hands as opposed to worrying about debt for 5 years!! This means you can buy a sweet car and put a downpayment down on a nice house, etc. etc. I assume that the opportunities are very similar coming out of Ross and Tuck, and let's be honest, it's not like one school is going to teach you so much more about business than the other will.

I had a similar decision for undergrad, and I chose the full scholarship at a top-50 school over half-tuition fin aid at an Ivy League school. I don't regret it because I work with people from Ivy League school at my job now, and they're all very much in debt. Granted, this is undergrad AND engineering, so not exactly b-school, but I think the logic is transferable.

I would say Tuck as long as you would be happy in Hanover for two years. Its probably the closest thing to an M7 that isnt one. The only reason it isnt, is because it is so small.

That, and it would be the 8th M7 :-D

First off, BIG congrats to you! That's awesome that you're getting that sort of financial assistance regardless of what you decide.

For me, Ross and Tuck are pretty much at the same level but really two different programs (size, method, etc.). I would take the money out of the picture for just a minute and REALLY research the programs, the academics, career services, etc. It has to be a good fit with you and what you're hoping to do. Tuck and Ross will both get your foot in the door with consulting firms -- in the end it's up to how you do when those opportunities come so I don't think you're gonna get short-changed by one school over the other in that regard.

I'd dig into the curriculum...see what courses, electives, special programs, etc. really peak your interest and go with that. Best of luck with your decision but just be grateful that you have such good options on your plate! :)
