Hi Everyone,

I'm seeking some advice.

I've been accepted to Goizueta with a scholarship for about 2/3 of tuition. I've also been accepted to Kelley with a Dean's Fellowship (covers full tuition/fees and access to the Dean's Council). I'd like to do strategy consulting post-MBA. In a vacuum, I think I'd prefer Goizueta due to its proximity to Atlanta, where many major consulting firms have offices. The fact that there is a city with things to do is a great plus too. However, I've heard that the Dean's Fellowship can be really helpful for networking - namely with previous Dean's Fellows who've landed at top firms.

Any insights or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!!

Congrats on your admits! I would choose Kelley - they are peer schools, and I believe it really makes a difference to be part of the Dean Fellow (for networking, as you said, and also for storytelling). Good luck!

Hi
I will iterate what I just have posted in other post about Kelley.

I visited Kelley before and have friends there too. It is nice school for many things. In consulting, they have consulting academy which will help you you. However, most consulting firms, as told by Consulting academy director, are 2nd tier like Deloitte or Accenture with few making their way to Mckinsey and much fewer to BCG or Bain. I do not know know how the dean fellowship will help you. You need to check either with with career service or current students who knows about the subject.

In light of your goals, I would lean to Emory as it is great to be in school that has great job in consulting recruitment in the South and main city with regional offices of MBB and other consulting firms. it will give you accessibility for networking. Even if you have to fly, you have Atlanta airport to fly you everywhere. In Kelley, you will have to travel Indy and then take fly from there.

Good luck

I would take Kelley and the money-makes more sense. Kelley will give you the same opportunities.

Kelley. The difference is minuscule between the two schools with Kelley being on upswing. And yes, Dean's Fellowship matters a lot. Not only in networking but also in making you stand out in recruitment process.

Thanks for your responses. I really appreciate the input.

I'm still struggling with this decision. I think the financial difference, tuition and fee wise, will be around $40-$50k over two years. But I think in Atlanta, if I strike out recruiting in a major city like NYC, I've still got Atlanta firms as a safety net, where Emory is the strongest school in the region. If I strike out in consulting altogether, I've got the option to do in-semester internships with companies in Atlanta. It just gives me some extra security. If I go to Indiana and strike out in recruiting in NYC or perhaps Chicago, I don't know what my options would be.

Do you guys have any thoughts on this?

Thanks!!

If you are a domestic candidate you don't need a safety net as a Top 20 school MBA student. And, If you are an international candidate you don't have any safety net past top 10-12 schools.
