Hello everyone, my situation has changed since the last time I had posted on this forum. I'm lucky to have received offers from 2 more amazing programs.
Would love to hear the community's thoughts on where I should head.

Profile in brief:25 year old indian male. Work experience - 2 years at Deloitte (international taxation), 2.5 years with my family business.

Post MBA career goals: Consulting

I have 3 great options to choose from:

1. UNC Kenan-Flagler - Admitted with a small merit scholarship (15000$ per year - approximately 20% of tuition). Awarded Dean's Fellowship (30 people out of 280 get selected)
The weather at chapel Hill seem amazing. Being a huge sports fan, I'm sure I'll have a great time at the school because of it's rich sports culture. Strong consulting program and recruitment. Good ties with mbb.

2. Cornell Johnson - Ivy league tag and globally recognized brand name. Immersion program offers semester long training in startegic operations which will be helpful during the internship. Love the idea of spending 2 years in a rural backdrop and firmly believe I will be able to form stronger relationships with classmates because of the immersive nature. Consulting recruitment seems strong with most tier 1/ tier 2 companies recruiting on campus. Waitlisted for scholarships.

3. IESE - Case method seems fascinating. Very diverse and international student body. Strong consulting recruitment. However, not sure about the brand name/ recognition outside of Spain/ Europe. Comparatively a bit cheaper than the US programs cause of the shorter duration (4 months less). Under consideration for scholarships.

Please share your thoughts/advice as soon as possible. Looking to make a final decision within a week.

Johnson has been on the come-up recently, so I’d heavily lean towards that. Also maybe try to use your scholly at UNC to negotiate at Johnson. They’re kinda stingy there with negotiations, but the worst they can say is “no”.

How much is the difference in cost of attendance between UNC and Cornell?
If money is not a (big) concern, I will go with Cornell. Compared to UNC, Cornell brand is much more well-known outside of the US.

The cost difference between UNC and Cornell comes up to Cornell being roughly 20k per year more expensive. I don't think that amount is significant enough for it to be the sole reason I pick UNC over Cornell. Will be able to cover that amount quickly in the long run.

I'd rather spend two year in RTP/Chapel Hill then Ithaca. You can get access to all consulting firms from UNC and Cornell, but the collaborative and spirit at UNC is awesome. 20k not that big in savings but money is money in my opinion. Goodluck
