# UCLA $$v. Kellogg  new topic post reply Question banks Downloads My Bookmarks Reviews Important topics Author Message TAGS: ### Hide Tags Intern Joined: 11 Apr 2012 Posts: 2 Followers: 0 Kudos [?]: 1 [0], given: 0 UCLA$$$v. Kellogg [#permalink] ### Show Tags 12 Apr 2012, 09:04 1 This post was BOOKMARKED I was accepted at both UCLA Anderson (with a full scholarship and a fellowship) and Northwestern Kellogg (with no$ as of yet). I am a career switcher, ultimately interested in working in Entertainment/Media. I was initially leaning towards UCLA for that reason. However, I really want the Kellogg pedigree. Fortunately, the money isn't a huge concern. Any thoughts - is Kellogg much better than UCLA? Would I be able to enter the Entertaiment industry out of Kellogg??

Oh wow. Thank you for all of those incredibly thorough responses! I really appreciate the insight. I ultimately want to go into TV production - working for a big TV studio. Whether I chose to spend my entire career in the entertainment industry is still very unknown. I currently live in NY and eventually want to return (not immediately after graduation, but in a few years).

Just found out that I was also accepted into Berkeley. I think I can safely write Berkeley off, though.

I think UCLA is the overwhelming choice. You know what you want to do and UCLA is more successful at placing people in that profession than Kellogg. Plus, you have a massive financial aid package, which will go a loooong way in helping you reach your goals. Jumping into media/entertainment means you will likely start at a much lower salary than bankers and consultants. If you don't have any educational debt load, you will be really well positioned to take advantage of a job offer that is an amazing opportunity at a lower salary. Also, you should consider the networking/interviewing opportunities offered by living in LA. If you are at Kellogg, you will have to regularly fly out to LA to interview with media/entertainment companies, which will be a big time suck and cost a lot (especially if on short notice!). Either way, great for you to have a choice between two great programs and an offer of financial aid!

Kellogg [#permalink] ### Show Tags 15 Mar 2015, 04:09 Congrats - I would also go with Anderson. Given the ties to the industry, strength of recruiting, alumni base and then the scholarship (even though $$isn't an issue, it certainly helps) it seems like the right choice. I think it would be helpful for you to do a little more digging into the types of roles/positions/functions Anderson grads are heading into to make sure that those are similar to what you think you are interested in. _________________ Interested in learning what life is like as an MBA Student?
