Been fortunate enough to be accepted to Foster, Kelley, and Owen (and waitlisted at McCombs), and I'm torn between Kelley and Foster. Total cost difference between the two is under $20k.

My background is in tech (6 yrs at a FAANG) and I'm looking to stay in tech. Because of this, I'm thinking Foster presents the most long-term advantages, but I'm quite taken with the culture at Kelley (but I am very concerned that the tech opportunities will not be as available as they will be with Foster). I also like McCombs, but I really doubt I have the energy I'd need to retake GMAT or otherwise "improve my candidacy" at this point, so I'm of the opinion that getting off the waitlist is a longshot.

I'll need to be depositing in the next few weeks and I think I know the answer, but I appreciate all of the opinions I can get as a sort of "gut-check".

I'm leaning Foster. If you were interested in other industries then Kelley would've been a fine move, but Foster practically places like a T15 when it comes to Tech if you're targeting Seattle Tech firms.

If you can confirm that Kelley has a decent pipeline to firms you're interested in (not just a handful of students per year doing off-campus recruiting) then for cultural reasons and to build a network in a different part of the country I could see the case for not choosing Foster. With your FAANG background I don't see you not getting a good Tech role through on-campus recruiting should Kelley have it as you'll be one of the strongest Tech candidates in the program.

Hey lit2biz ,

Tech Focus means Foster without any doubt. Kelley is well known for marketing and foster for tech. Being in Seattle and closer to tech firms can go in your favor. Good luck and keep us posted! :)
