Kellogg w/$ vs. MIT-Sloan w/$$  [#permalink]

Hey guys - want to get your thoughts before I have to make a decision (and soon!):

I'm torn up having to make a decision between Kellogg MMM w/$60K in scholarship funding and MIT-Sloan with 75% tuition coverage (+ Forte). I calculated that with the additional cost of the extra quarter at Kellogg, the debt load I'd take on would be about $90K vs. $35K at Sloan.

What do you think? My gut is telling me Kellogg based on the people I've met, the MMM program, and the school's reputation for marketing excellence. MIT-Sloan is obviously a fantastic choice, so I know I can't go wrong either way. I'm trying to figure out if my gut feeling is worth an additional $55K...? My brain is telling me to take Sloan's money and enjoy a real city like Boston vs. Evanston.

Thoughts? Encouragement? Trash-talking either school? I need help.

Go with your gut here...I would say also with Kellogg...Chicago is right down the road from Evanston and you will spend a decent amount of time there. Chicago vs Boston I'd go with Chicago.

Congratulations! Both great schools.

I would go with your gut. Also, I'd personally pick Kellogg -- more experiential learning, fantastic culture and a bit more diverse. I've found the people I've met from Kellogg to be truly motivated and interested in making a difference in the world around them. I also think the MMM program looks awesome! I would imagine the MMM degree to be a differentiator while recruiting, and I think the challenge of these classes will help you build unique skills. Lastly, Kellogg is typically ranke a bit higher and considered a better institution within the business world

best of luck with decision!

Congrats! Both awesome schools. I'd say they are neck and neck (with Kellogg having a better reputation within the business school realm), and echo the sentiments of others to go with your gut. I think "fit" and the people you met at each admit weekend should sway your decision, given that they're both excellent schools academically.

I do not know a lot about the MMM program -- but it looks really interesting. It seems similar to the d.school at Stanford. I think the MMM program on innovation would be helpful in any career going forward, given that this way of thinking is needed in large corporations, startups and NGOs alike. have you talked to any MMM grads? could be interesting hearing the career paths they've taken post bschool...

In short, I vote Kellogg. But you're in a lucky spot with two enviable acceptances :)
