Hi!

I feel super lucky to have been accepted to Wharton and CBS. I also received a $50k fellowship from columbia, so $100k over the two years. I got nothing from Wharton.

A few factors to consider:
-In the long term, I want to go into entrepreneurship. It seems that Wharton has better resources for that, but it also would be helpful to graduate with less debt.
-I currently live in NYC, which is good and bad. I have a network here which could be helpful but also could be distracting from my MBA experience.
-Culturally, I liked Wharton better when I visited and really vibed well with the community.

Would love to hear your thoughts! I'm pretty torn.

Can you get Wharton to match? I think that’s your first option.

They seem really cheap with scholarship money compared to other schools. Just an observation.

For Entrepreneurship you want to attend the lowest cost school unless you are going into VC type of thing and would never be a starving entrepreneur. I am not sure what your financial situation is but taking on $150K of extra tuition + the already expected $70-100K in living expenses, makes it a $2-3K/mo student loan payment.

I'd vote for Full Ride in CBS vs. Wharton in that case.
