Ross vs UNC Kenan-Flalger (Full ride) [#permalink] New post 30 Jan 2012, 08:12
Hi,

Thanks for taking the time to help me. I need your advice on this very critical decision!

I have been admitted to Michigan Ross (no scholarship) and UNC's Kenan Flagler (full ride). I am an international candidate, and interested in a career in consulting or non-IB finance. Hoping for a placement either in NY or California.

The points that matter to me in both schools are:
Program and course structure
Placements
Return on Investment
People and culture
Learning experience
Brand value (in and outside US)

It would be great to know your views on this! If you think of some important criteria I should have considered, please feel free to add.

Thanks a lot

Both are great schools. Ross has a better name. But I would definitely consider going for the free ride (unless you are super rich). It's a LOT of money and a lot of worry off your back once you graduate that essentially lets you do what you wish. And if you perform and push you can probably arrive at the same/similar goals.

BUT all in all whatever you do, there's no way I would take this decision without visiting, even staying for as many days at each school till I could figure it out.

But whatever choice you make, remember you are in a win-win decision.
