ASU (WP Carey) or Notre Dame (Mendoza)  [#permalink]

New post Updated on: 06 May 2015, 22:00
I have gotten admits from both. ASU gave me a full ride with GA and stipend. Notre Dame offered a Forte Fellowship with 30g a year but will have to take on an additional 30g loan to cover tuition for the 2 years, plus some additional loans for living costs. I could end up making money from going to ASU

It seems like it should be an easy decision but because my career goals are towards marketing I am concerned that ASU might not be a good as they are geared towards supply chain so heavily. I feel like like ND has the better brand name of the 2 though and would look better on resumes. Notre Dame has the strong alumni connections which would help with job contacts post MBA as well.

Anyone who has any input to offer would be appreciated. I have 10 days to give my decision :shock: . Thanks for any help!

I'm not as much of an expert on the business school, but I went to ND for undergrad and absolutely loved it. From a reputation perspective, I'd definitely agree that Mendoza carries more weight. I'm sure you've considered this, but give some thought to where you want to be post-MBA.

Follow the money to ASU. Enjoy the sunshine. Network and recruit where you want to live.

Don't let a bunch of opinion makers at USNWR who rank schools (but then don't have to pay to attend them) and all the rankings-crazed people on this website make you feel like you have to uproot to Indiana to have a better education/network/life. At ASU you can get a great education and you'll graduate with the same degree.

The truth is, in my opinion, (or what I feel like I have discovered over the last year in B-School) is that whether you're at Harvard or a state school, the vast majority of what you'll get out of an MBA will be what you put into it. The brand you wear on your school sweatshirt isn't nearly as important as we all make it out to be during the application cycle. No need to suffer with burdensome debt after the fact if you don't have to.

All that said, I have nothing bad to say about Notre Dame. It's a great school with a lot to offer. It just seems like from what you've described this should be an easy choice in favor of ASU.

Good luck with the decision!

BTW...in your poll, I voted for W.P. Carey. That's ASU's school.

Shouldn't it be ASU vs. ND?

Or W.P. Carey vs. Mendoza?

Might need to fix that. :)
