Kenan-Flagler or Kelley? [#permalink] New post 25 Feb 2006, 09:23
Scott,

I would like to hear your opinion on these two programs. I applied to Fuqua (Dinged), Kenan-Flagler (Accepted), and Kelley (Accepted).

Kenan-Flagler: tuition and fees - 75K plus 3K for summer (no merit aid)

Kelley: tuition and fees - 58K (12hr GA - 29K)

All things equal, I liked UNC better but not by much. The location in the research triangle and the weather were both factors. I also feel that UNC has more of a national brand. However, I enjoyed my class visits at Indiana more. Would someone with a non-traditional healthcare background like myself see a night and day difference in career paths after graduation? 50K (not including the difference in living expenses) is a sizeable difference. I realize that the final decision is a personal one, however I feel that I do not have enough post graduation information to make an informed decision.

Thanks Again,

I know some Kelley grads and think that they're top-notch. I think Kelley is a great program. But given your healthcare background and interest in staying in healthcare (based on your older post), I'd probably recommend UNC, given their locatoin near the Research Triangle, etc., etc.

I know it's a big difference in $$, but I promise that this will be insignificant in 20 years!

Really, you can't go wrong. And I generally don't feel comfortable saying to someone, "Go to School A. It's better than School B." But UNC might be a better fit for what you want to do.
