If you can't pay off 100k with a job at JP Morgan, you're doing it wrong. Take the Duke offer, and don't look back. Live your life with no regrets. 100k is going to be your second year bonus in banking. It may sound crazy now, but it won't once you've got that job, and you'll be happy having attained your childhood dream of attending Duke.

Wow, congrats on making the decision. Awesome that you were more interested in fit instead of rankings. FWIW, I was leaning towards Tepper, but CobraKai convinced me for Johnson.


Yeah, people kept saying go to the highest ranked school.... Its ridiculous really. Go to the best school that gets you were you want to be with the least debt. Everyone says well the higher rank school will pay off in the end. Not really. If I go to JPM from Vanderbilt or Cornell the 100k difference is going to be impossible to pay off. Not to mention the compounding interest. In my eyes I am pretty much the same candidate coming out of either. Again (H,W,S) is different but aside from those it doenst matter. I still have the same work experience , the same work ethic, same personality, same GMAT score on my resume just a different name at the top of the paper. I think top recruits at any school are going to get looks at any school that companies come to campus. Remember that when you are applying...



Congrats on the multiple admits buddy. Please excuse my limited knowledge about IB recruiting in the US, but is the GMAT score important post MBA as well, I thought its a done deal once you start the MBA.

For what it's worth, I'm quite familiar with the banking industry. You will see Duke grads on Wall St at top banks. I didn't meet Vandy people at a top bank, but did see some at a smaller trading shop and mid market southern banks like Raymond James.

Would the scholarship be worth it if you make less money or get a less desirable job in the end? Recruiting is what you make of it but Wall Street is notoriously prestige conscious. The reputation of your school will absolutely follow you even after your first job.

Additionally, you'll have to deal with having a smaller NYC network as a result of fewer people from Vandy being here. That impacts networking opportunities as well as social life. What's that worth to you?
