Hi guys I already started having my decision headaches...Stern (full ride) vs. Booth (no $$). What would you do? Post MBA job is Consulting/finance.

I am not sure how viable this is but maybe you can ask for $ from Booth. Someone more knowledgeable may pitch in

Working for government science agency with plenty of unique experiences. Only area I believe I could improve would be selling why Booth's community is best fit. Engage with the school and focus more on why they fit your goals. Best of luck!

You can get great jobs in those fields from both schools.

If booth would be my absolute dream school I would go for it. If I didn't care that much/have a strong connection I'd choose the one with the full ride. I think each person has different evaluation criteria. I would do a list of pros and cons.. but also listen to my gut.

Congratulations on these amazing offers!!

A full ride is too tempting, more so given that both schools place well in your areas of interest! I'd tell Booth of the competing offer & ask for $$. If they offer somewhere close to 50% of what Stern is offering, I'd choose Booth, else head to Stern

Congrats on Booth and NYU admits! We have a dedicated sub-forum for these discussions: Admitted - Which BSchool to Choose? You can explain your situation in that forum; I am sure you will get good advice from other applicants/mba experts.
