Hi everyone, I am having a hard time to decide between two admissions offers that I have received: Georgetown (with US$ 60k of scholarship) and McCombs (no $). My professional background is Product Management in the Chemicals sector and I intend to make a career change to Management Consulting (in Brazil, my home country) or to Product Management in Technology (in this case, in the US).

Without scholarship, I would choose with McCombs, which is more affordable and stronger in Tech. However, with the scholarship, my debt would be US$ 35k smaller at Georgetown, even with the higher living costs in DC. I consider them both as great schools and I believe each has some advantages and disativantages, so I am leaning towards Georgetown. Do you believe that the opportunities that McCombs would offer me vs. Georgetown in short and long-term value are worth the $ difference?

Thank you in advance for your attention and help!

Any reason why you are not considering K-F?

Thanks @jessepinkman!! Could you give more details on why you would go with UT?

@Classof2020, I really liked K-F, but I believe it would make more sense for me to go to McCombs between these 2 because the last is more affordable and stronger in Tech, which is one of the industries that I will be foccusing!
