Hi All,

I am interested in pursuing an MBA program specializing in Finance. I have received the following offers:

1. Mendoza, Notre Dame: $60,000 Scholarship. (there might be a chance to get a Graduate/Teaching Assistantship in the second year)
2. Kelley, Indiana: $55,000 scholarship which includes fee reduction and stipend through a Graduate Assistantship offer.
3. McDonough, Georgetown: $20,000 Scholarship. (there might be a chance to get a Graduate/Teaching Assistantship in the second year)

Considering the University, the B-School, MBA program, location and scholarship offers which School should i choose?

Also would it be wise to write to any of these schools asking them to bump up my scholarship offer?

Regards,
Julius

Congrats on your 3 admits and scholarships - that's fantastic.

I think you have a pretty easy choice - Kelley. The best ranked school with the better scholarship.
Mendoza is too small to attract employers on Campus and Georgetown is not enough $$$ while being ranked equally with Kelley.

P.S. Nobody ever got dinged for asking for money. However, it is not very common to get a bump unless you ask for something specific -i.e. to be considered for a named scholarship or a GA position. Schools are reluctant and unable to do much maneuvering with money so they traditionally do not negotiate (there are exceptions). If you are going to ask, do your research, talk to some of the current students, appear genuine and sincere in your request.

Congrats and Good Luck!
