Hi guys!
I got admitted to Booth, my dream school 2 weeks ago. I was so thrilled that I paid my deposit the next week. But yesterday, I got admitted to Ross with full-tuition!
And since I'm an international with no saving and no co-signer, Ross is kind of tempting.

My dream is to switch to VC (But I know how hard this would be). Plan B : PM tech.

What do you think guys? I'm 65%-35% Booth-Ross right now.


Thanks.

Follow your dream-Go to Booth. Also, Booth is offering $70K so that is quite a lot. Probability of landing a VC job is much higher at Booth.

Congratulations on your admits and Scholarship offers! Amazing job!

Looks like that's about 50% Booth Scholarship, which will make you $150K in debt vs. $75 at Ross.
If you can't make it work financially, then you can't make it work... but at the same time, if you are looking for something as competitive as VC or IB or PE then you have to as high as possible as pedigree counts there and those jobs are found exclusively via networking. VC tends to be Stanford's domain since they have many VC's down the road in Palo Alto but Wharton and Booth are respectable seconds. I don't know how much Ross has in the VC out there - perhaps a linkedIn Exercise?

Ross has been doing better and better in the last few years. Tech has been really helping them but Booth is Booth.

It seems it needs to be Booth for your professional goals....

Booth with 70K is an easy call over Ross with a full ride, especially given your dream to get into VC. Harvard/Stanford tend to dominate most of the coastal VC opportunities but there are plenty of opportunities to get into Chicago based VCs out of Booth.

Quick follow up before I respond to your choices - Booth does not need a cosignor and you should have no problems picking up a loan from the school partners, right? The 30% $$$ wouldn't affect me to be honest. I'd pick Booth. I'd have said different things if you had no money from Booth at all. Ross is great (I am here!), but a 70% discount at Booth is a total dream.

Hi souvik101990,
Could you give more sheds on the bold part, please?
