Deciding between 2 potentially 3 B-Schools: WASHU-Olin (wait listed but I'm sure I will be off the list), SMU-Cox (60%), University of Rochester-Simon (60%)

The facts about SMU: With SMU I already have an extensive network established in Dallas already and SMU has all the things that I want the problem with it is I have no affiliations with larger organizations aka no MLT PD, no Forte, No Consortium

The facts about Rochester: With Rochester I will have Forte, potentially consortium and MLT PD the only thing I am missing from there is the network I have in Dallas, but overall I feel as though Rochester has a genuine interest in me.

The facts about WashU: With WASHU I would have consortium only, obviously no network but WASHU is higher ranked

I am planning on going into Nonprofit leadership with a national organization or government roles my back up is marketing manager with a fortune 500 company should that not pan out well.

Congratulations on your admits!

I don't think you should worry about WashU higher ranking - people debate the top 20 very contentiously and once you go outside of that group, it is even less clear what's better or not, so I would not worry about it and consider them more or less equal. My suggestion would be to focus on the schools that have offered you a scholarship - Simon or Cox.

Simon has a STEM degree, which makes it a magnet for all the international applicants, making 50% of the student body International, and and a bit too heavy in my experience. Simon is especially dominant with Indian nationals - 60 people from India in the class of 2020. SMU has 13% of International students - quite a difference, huh? Pick the place you you would prefer but if you already have a network in Dallas, why not leverage it?

My 2 cents....
