Ross vs. Johnson vs. Kenan Flagler ($) vs. Goizueta ($$) [#permalink] New post 15 Mar 2013, 10:52
So it is my turn to post a first world problem.

I got into Ross and Johnson with no money, and will be/am appealing at both (and $ could be the tie breaker here), and got some $ at Kenan Flagler, and $$ at Goizueta.
I want to go into Strategy consulting after MBA with MBB being the goal (but if I end up at Deloitte, ATKearney etc... I will not be dissapointed).

Johnson - Best fit culture wise, love the people, love the location, love the fit, and I think the Career center seems really personal and great.
However the consulting recruiting there seems weak with BCG not even present at all (that said I talked to an alumni who ended up working for BCG Internationally).

Ross- Great culture, great school, the MAP program seems exciting, all the consulting companies recruit there.
However it is big, and rankings have been slipping, also seems that while all the companies recruit there, all the students want to be consultants so a lot of competition.
The decrease in class size this year makes me a little bit happier.

Goizueta - $$ is always nice. Atlanta is a great town, and the culture is great. However it seems that getting MBB out of Goizueta is very very very hard.
Also seems Atlanta is the only option after graduation.

Kenan-Flagler - $ is nice, and STAR seems like a great program to put on your resume. Also location is wonderfull. Again MBB seems very hard to do.

In the end I think that it comes down to $ vs. opportunity, I think I am leaning towards Ross ($ from Johnson or Ross will definetly change my decision), but the $$ from Goizueta is hard to pass up, and Johnson's rise in rankings, and great culture are also amazing.

Any ideas, thoughts?

I would try to simplify this and make it Ross vs. Johnson and ignore the money. I posted this on another thread, but it's worth repeating:

Ross has slipped a bit in the rankings but they've trimmed their intake this year to improve their disappointing career stats so I think if you're in at Ross, you'll be able to find something in consulting you'll be happy with. If you thought your fit at Johnson was significantly better than at Ross, it would still be a good choice.

UNCs $ is relatively insignificant but would look good on the resume.
Goizueta tuition difference plus $$ add up to a $60k difference total over 2 years vs. Ross or Johnson.

i hope they come back with some $ for you... if they dont, i wouldnt fault u for taking the money to emory. its a great school, also ranked top 20, that produces a lot of consultants.. they're clearly doing a lot to improve the school as well. the only school i might consider over it personally would be ross. you know what you want going in so i think u could pull out with a mbb position, although with some hustle you may be able to at emory as well. if you do decide on emory, consider that 60k(~100k pretax) your salary to hustle. and if you do decide on ross, make sure u seal the deal on that mbb.
