Vanderbilt - Owen or Boston College - Carroll ??? [#permalink] New post 09 Jun 2013, 13:19
Hey Guys,

I have been accepted in Vanderbilt Owen and BC Carroll with good scholarships. I am really confused about which school to go for. Cost wise, both should end up costing me almost same, but that is anyways secondary. I am an International student interested in Consulting/Strategy roles in North-East and West coast areas. I am not sure about my preferences for a job in South, but Vandy's reputation is probably unmatched by BC. But BC does have a strong location advantage.

Please help me in deciding! Share your views.

@Mods - Apologies for posting in this forum, but it is urgent.

Thanks
DJ

The good news is that you have a win-win decision. In the end, both decisions would be good decisions.

Given the limited information I know about your background, I lean towards BC. Here's why:

- The northeast US is one of the locations you seek. The employing companies and the network of BC will be strongest for that goal. (Neither will have significant presence on the west coast, and this makes that a moot point).
- Boston is a very metropolitan and sophisticated city. There are many international students there, and I would venture that the environment is more "international-friendly."

Good luck with your decision!
