I have an admit from Emory and McCombs and now the time has come for me to make my decision. Needless to say that I am utterly confused.
I am looking to specialize in Operations and would like to get into consulting (no location preference).

Here's a list of things that I could think off and am basing my decision:

Emory:
Scholarship + Co-signer free international student loan would help me cover the total cost of the program.
Great career opportunities (proven track record) + smaller, focused cohort

McCombs:
Scholarship + Loan (with US co-signer). The cost difference between attending McCombs and Emory would be USD 60K (McCombs being higher). - the loan process would be painful
Focused curriculum with specialization in Operations Consulting.
Better ranked program, more selective, perceived a better program in the market (I think...also jolted by the recent drop in Emory's ranking in FT - attributed to different reasons)

Please suggest....My decision is currently being driven by the cost and I am leaning towards Emory.

Shea,
Thanks for your inputs. Very helpful. But how do think the rankings play out for both the school in terms of their perception in the market?

I highly recommend going to Emory. 60k difference is no joke. And the difference in rankings is very minimal once you get to 20+. The only differentiating factor for the schools ranked 20+ should be the location not the brand nor the rankings.. Rankings change every year so it really should not influence you.

The best thing to do is to visit both schools and have a feel for the community. However this is a no brained. Go to Emory the 60k in savings is a huge bonus!!! It is just as good if not better than the texas arguably.

I think you should watch a great ted talk called 'how to make hard choices or how to make hard decisions.' You should search it in google. It will give you a good framework in terms of thinking about which choice to make. Both schools are great and congratulations for getting into both of them but the amount of debt that you will end up paying does not make going to Texas worth it.

Don't forget to kudos!
