Hi All,

I needed a little insight in choosing my B school.
I recently got an admit to ISB and Scheller Business School (Full scholarship).I have applied to other B schools as well in US namely Ross, Tepper, Anderson. I am still waiting for their results.
ISB session starts in second week of April. Should I go for Scheller and leave ISB and in parallel wait for other B schools or should I take admission in ISB.
I am interested in working in technology consulting for an year or so in US and then will decide from thereon.
But I am divided over joining Scheller.
Any inputs?

First off,congratulations on the admit!

I am no expert but I feel investing close to 40 lakhs at ISB may not be best decision as you are in contention for much better schools. The full scholarship looks very tempting financially but their alumini will only be able to give you an honest review.

My advice would be to speak to a reputed MBA consultant for some much needed expert advice.

Best wishes!:)

I was in a similar situation like you a couple of months back. I got Full Scholarship from Scheller, Broad and Fisher and a R1 admit from ISB. I am choosing ISB over the other three.
To begin with, all the 3 US schools are impeccable in their own ways and I feel extremely grateful to have received such hefty offers from them.

My motivation behind choosing ISB was both personal and professional.

Professionally, I want to work in India and the Indianness of ISB - Brand value, network, job opportunities and world class infrastructure are very enticing for me. Secondly, coming from NIT (batch of 800) I enjoy the perk of a large batch size - the lifelong connection is something I won't get in the other 3. And thirdly, it's fast paced 1 year program.
After having 4.5 years of experience, I feel a one year program with around 650 contact hours is ideal.

And personally, I like being here. I have had international experience in the past, and having travelled widely for work and leisure, I am not that blown away to work abroad. And lastly, with parents aging, I feel staying close to home suits me.

My 2 cents: Start writing on a piece of paper about all the things you want after 3-5 years and tick what you can get from which school. Talk to people, take opinions, and then make a decision and stand by it.
