Hello ,

I am currently in quite a tricky situation, and would require some piece of help to decide which college to go to. I am an international applicant from India and money is a concern. At the same time my major concern is the job opportunities. Below are the options I am contemplating.

Kelley: $20k with $35K GA (basically 55% scholarship)
RICE: $70K Scholarship
Notre Dame: $60K

Brief about my background:
I have back ground in consulting industry, working in the infrastructure sector. Currently working with KPMG and was previously employed at PwC. Total experience of 4 years.

GMAT:720
Undergrad: Engineer

Post MBA plans: I am looking to continue in consulting space. Majorly looking at management or strategy roles.

I am confused about the 2 options -Kelley and Rice. All information I have gathered points towards Kelley, and also the placement scenario at RICE for internationals seems pretty bad. Money obviously is a big concern for me.

It will definitely be helpful if anybody can provide insights on the pros and cons of the two schools.
Look forward to your response and thank you in advance.

I too was in similar situation and decided to choose kelley.
The splitting points which made me inclined towards kelley were :
a) Big Alumni base (not just MBA but others as well) which I have already started tapping into and found a great response (as compared to Rice)
b) Talking to current student realized that the placement numbers for internationals are not really that great at Rice either and the Career Service Center at Kelley is putting in more efforts to get the folks placed...
c) incoming class (my batch) seems to be more dynamic and active at Kelley as compared to Rice

Hope this helps you as well...
