Georgetown VS Fisher $$  [#permalink]

Hi all,

I got into Georgetown (no scholarship) and Fisher (50% scholarship).

International student, looking to work in Consulting, in the US post MBA.

I've paid the deposit at Georgetown, but just got to know about my scholarship at Fisher, and having second thoughts now.

Would love to get some perspective. What do you think I should do?

Thanks!

PS. I already tried negotiating with Georgetown about scholarship, no luck.

It is advisable for internationals not to accept Georgetown for consulting. as it is recruitment for consulting is for federal agencies that demand American citizenship. Also, Fisher offered nice scholarship which will help decrease you burden. It may offer you some 2nd tier consulting companies such Deloitte or Accenture......etc

Good luck

You will be limited by the types of consulting opportunities you will receive from Georgetown, the school is in a much better area than Indiana is but with the scholarship and the MBA brand I would go KF as you still may have a decent shot as some non-MBB consulting opportunities

One other thing, I would also definitely talk to both schools career services center to get more info as well as international student who went through the consulting recruiting process. The more on the ground info you can get here the better!

McDonough is one school that doesn't offer much aid to internationals. Here is a piece of advice form a moderator who went to a school in DC ->


A piece of advise for internationals give last priority to schools based in Washington DC. 99% jobs and internships are in federal sector and internationals are not eligible for them (even in companies like E&Y, BAH, PWC, Deloitte, TCS, etc.) , and I hope nobody would be interested in unpaid internships. Ground reality is quite different; contact current international students to understand the challenges they are meeting. As per my knowledge story is just opposite in schools located in commercial hubs such as Chicago, Boston, North California and New York, so keep your focus on such similar commercial locations.



I strongly recommend Fisher. Even without the money I would have said fisher.
The money just makes this decision 10x times easier!
