Good luck with your delightful dilemma!

You’ve just received the best news ever: Not only have you been accepted to b-school, but you’ve received offers of admission from more than one program. Congratulations! Now you have the delightful dilemma of choosing among suitors. Here are factors to consider when deciding among multiple acceptances:

Factor #1: Which institution best supports your future goals and most likely career path? 

This criterion is paramount when you have clear, well-defined goals, for instance, “I want to run an IT consultancy serving financial services firms.” If financial aid is an issue, calculate whether the full tuition program will increase your earning power by more than the amount of the scholarship or whether your preference for the more expensive school is worth the difference in cost.

Factor #2: Which educational approach do you prefer?

Look at methodology, curriculum, and flexibility. For applicants with more general goals, this criterion plays a more significant role.

Factor #3: Where would you rather live for X years? 

Do you want to live in a big city or small college town? What region do you want to live in? Do you prefer a big university or a small college? Urban or rural? Religious or secular? Liberal or conservative?

Enjoy your great options and use these criteria to guide you as you make your decision.
