Hi all,

I've seen a few of these, so I thought I'd post my own.

Struggling with a good (but still tricky) problem to have - need to choose between a full scholarship to Haas vs. no money to Kellogg.

-Likely pursuing Brand Management
-Intend to settle in the Midwest / Mid Atlantic / East Coast (not West Coast)

While I may be overconfident, I'm not too concerned with landing the first job in Brand Management out of either school (i.e., I know that Kellogg would offer much better on-campus Brand Management recruiting options, but with diversity conferences, etc. I don't think I'd have too much trouble getting the first job out of Haas - but correct me if I'm wrong here).

I'm more concerned with career progression, promotions, opportunities, etc. further down the road, given that I don't intend to settle on the West Coast.

Thanks!

Added a poll for you. If you are confident that you can pivot to a non-West Coast Brand Management job after Haas, then it doesn't make sense to go with Kellogg.

Haas easily.

Brand mgmt is a traditional track everywhere. Also, since you'll be at Haas, you are more likely to stand out since most people there don't want to do traditional marketing roles.

Kellogg has a great rep but I think you can get a brand management job from either school.

I also vote for Haas. The difference between the two schools isn't enough to warrant the $120K difference.
