hey Scott/Omari

how are you doing?? i'd sent you a post sometime back mentioning that i'd made it to MSU-Broad, i recently recieved an admit from OSU-Fisher too! im still waiting for responses from MIT-Sloan, Stern and Ross. in the meanwhile, i was thinking about the tuition fee structure at these 2 state universities. they are a lot cheaper than MIT, Stern or Ross. i have also heard that state universities offer more financial aid, i have already received an assistantship from Broad! and Broad and Fisher are doing alright with quite a few good consulting companies coming in to recruit their students, with Fisher doing better among the two.
of course Broad has a great program for supply chain/operations.

would you suggest i wait for decisions from Stern, Ross and MIT or go ahead and pay my deposit in case MSU and OSU dont give me sufficient time!

will be great if you can help me out of the dicey situation here.

thanks
Scarlett

Definitely wait... There's no reason not to!

In terms of the costs, it's up to you, but my personal opinion is that you should try to take the long-term view as much as possible. If you really want to go to School X and think it's a better fit, but School Y is giving you a lot more money, my reco is to still go with School X. Keep in mind that this is an investment that will benefit you for decades, long after your student loans are paid!

thanks Scott/Omari [#permalink] New post 17 Jan 2006, 21:23
thank you guys

anyway i made it to Purdue-Krannert's MBA program too, i received a mail from them today! .
anyway, i will wait for the results of the other schools too, them being Stern, Ross and Sloan! i guess i'll just wait and watch!

anyway, for some one who wants to study Operations management and organization strategy and get into the consulting field, which of the 3 schools (Fisher-OSU, Broad-MSU and Krannert-Purdue) that have already accepted me do you think is the best?

employment stats [#permalink] New post 18 Jan 2006, 22:39
scott, but when you look at the employment stats of the three schools in the arena of consulting, fisher seems most impressive! followed by broad then Krannert!

also does demographic location play a major role?
