Hello,

Cannot make a choice between the Georgetown and Rice. Want to pursue strategic consulting carrier, schools look pretty common in many spheres. However, I like more Georgetown list of top employers. Is this a good criterion? What else should I take a close look at, taking into consideration that programs and average salaries are comparable...?

with both schools the major thing is location post grad. They are decent enough schools but are weak the farther you get from them. If you want a consulting job in DC....no brainer Gtown!

This should be an easy choice....tell us what you want to do and where.....go to the school that gives you the best opportunity to do that.

Thanks for answering. I'm looking for carrier in strategy consulting. Location does not matter that much. What matters is "safer chose" for the last round and opportunity to join decent top consulting firm after the graduation...
