Which schools should I go to? [#permalink] New post 04 Mar 2013, 13:47
First is my info: GMAT 710. No work experience but internships. Senior level undergraduate student and applied for MBA and MS schools in Management Information Systems Program.

Schools I got into:
1) Bentley University MS+MBA (full tuition scholarship)
2) University of Arizona, Eller MS (no scholarship information yet)
3) Arizona State University MS (no scholarship info)
4) Texas A&M University (no scholarship info)
5) University of Texas Dallas (no scholarship info)

Options:
1) go to Grad school directly. (MS? or MS+MBA?)
2) Work first. ( There is a chance that I will get the job offer from my former internship company. Should I work there if I get the job in the computer science field? I am afraid of letting the full tuition scholarship go?)

If you were me, what option would you choose, given the information I provided? Thank you so much for your time reading this post. That means a lot to me. :)

First of all congratulations.

I don't know much about Bentley and I also don't know what your professional goals are or what kind of job you could get. I don't really feel I have enough information to opine; sorry.

The advantage of going now is that your opportunity cost is relatively low. If you are sure of your goals and that these program support them, then go for it. If you are unsure, then work first and determine your direction and the appropriate degree to lead you down that path.

Best,
Linda
