Hello,
I’ve been accepted to Darden (UVA) full time and McDonough (Georgetown) part time. I also received a Forté fellowship with $10k scholarship to McDonough. I’m not sure what I want to be doing after graduation but I currently work for the federal government. Is school ranking more important or should I go with the scholarship?

Hey SG244 ,

Welcome to GMATClub and congratulations for the two great admits. :)

Had I been at your place, I would have chosen Darden for the following reasons:

1. Darden has a very strong brand value compared to McDonough .
2. The scholarship offer of isn't that high to outweigh the benefits of Darden.

Also, you need to decide whether you wanna go for Full time MBA or Part Time.

If you don't wanna spend 2 years only for MBA, then it doesn't make sense to choose Darden.

I hope that helps.

All the best :)

Darden all the way!
The two schools are not in the same bracket.

Darden is a very strong brand as compared to MSB and the scholarship is almost negligible to make any viable impact on the decision making. Also, I strongly believe that FT MBA is much better option than a PT MBA.

you cannot really compare the value-add of a full time top MBA program with a part-time program. the only situation where I would deem that comparable is if you are already working in a fairly high paying role and don't want to sacrifice the opportunity cose. Unless that's the case, Darden is a no-brainer.
