I'm in a real tough spot guys, need some great suggestions.
I have got an admit from McCombs (without any schol) and at the same time Fisher has offered me an admit with a 50% tuition schol along with a fellowship of $715 per month.
That makes McCombs costlier by close to $65k I guess. Being an international student, this is a huge sum of money for me. I know Austin is great as a city and the collaborative atmosphere in McCombs is really something I looked forward to but at the same time I am aware that Fisher has a really small batch size (about 125) and has good placement stats (% of students placed). Although the avg starting salary at McCombs is fairly high, some older posts in GMAT club suggest that the placements for international students have at times been a little disappointing.
I aim to pursue strategy, consulting and marketing and that way McCombs certainly holds the edge. But its just that the difference in ROI might turn out to be huge if I chose Fisher.
I'd appreciate an honest assessment of my situation.

I’m assuming $65K is over the course of 2 years. I know it may not seem like it at the moment. This difference is easily made up for over the course of your career. I think the career exits out of McCombs are significantly better than those of Fisher, especially if you are thinking about consulting. The smaller class size may or may not mean better interaction with professors or classmates. It does mean you will have a smaller alumni base to leverage from for jobs. Unless you are a domestic applicant and planning to live/work in Ohio, Fisher would not make sense.
