Hi,

I have got an admit from HEC Paris, IIM Bangalore (1 year EPGP) and Tippie (with $$). I have been interviewed with Rice (Jones), ASU (WP Carey) & NUS and I expect admits from these schools as well.

I have to deposit EUR 8000 to secure my place at HEC Paris before Nov 16. However, results of some of the US B-schools and NUS will not be out by then.

I am really confused as to which school should I choose. Should I let go of HEC Paris?

Background: I am an Indian in my early 30s, working in Bangalore. Through online search I found mixed reviews about the job prospects of Indian nationals in Europe. Hence, I am a bit skeptical about HEC Paris.

Please help me with this tough decision process!!

Congratulations on your admits - fantastic job performing so well.
Not sure about your other schools but one of the thoughts - does it make sense to shoot a bit higher and look at the top 10/20 in R2? I know it is highly competitive but $$ from Tippie indicates they really loved you and with some luck, you may score additional scholarship money or at least have more choices with other programs? Just a thought.

As to your question, European schools all do this crazy deposit thing that is an arm and a leg. I don't know why; it is super annoying.

What you need to figure out/decide is whether you want to be in the long run: the US, India, or Europe. Some speculate that US may be a tougher place to find a job now that a new president has been elected. That may or may not be true.... At the same time, going to school in France, has its own impacts - look at the HEC's employment reports and how many people found jobs outside of France within Europe, of those who were not EU nationals. You have to dissect it quite a bit (I have done the same thing for IE and a few others trying to understand chances for non EU applicants). The part that bothers me about Europe and France is the language component. Will many positions in France, Germany, Sweden expect some local language proficiency? If so, that's a downer (something else to research and check with current students about).

I agree with the aforementioned post on deciding where you want to work after school.

Hi everyone

I've been admitted to HEC but without scholarship. Even I'm skeptical about the program from Careers point of view. Is it worth the investment? Or should I let it go and prepare for other programs.

Please suggest.

Thanks for reading.

It depends what options you have otherwise.... and many other things. Hard to tell.
