There is no sure path that will lead you to H/S/W. On the surface, the Spain opportunity seems more spontaneous and interesting. However, the MS Finance route may take you in a different path than what you have "mapped out" and be just as interesting. You have to follow your heart, take risks, and pick the best choice for you. Life your life to being true to yourself and don't have regrets.

Btw- if you are seeking advice from a specific admission consultant, you may want to copy your post into their respective sub-forum. :)

First, you need to learn how to be a bit more succinct.

Anyhow, I'd take the Spain opportunity - it sounds like a far more interesting life experience.

And that is how you should be making choices anyhow - based on what is best for you now and what you feel will yield the most interesting life experience, irrespective of b-school.

Will it help you with b-school admissions? Who knows. But don't let that uncertainty dictate what you should or shouldn't do with your life. I get a sense that you feel b-school is going to be the glass slipper in your Cinderella story, magically transforming you into someone you aren't right now - and getting those prestigious IB/MC/PE/whatever jobs that you seem to pine for.

Avoid this "I'm going to stop living my life or choosing what's best for me until I get that b-school degree" mentality - where everything you do is contingent on getting into b-school.

Take the opportunity that is more compelling to you from a life standpoint. Build a life, not a resume.
