Hello MBA Mission,

I have been gathering opinions about my query and your expert advice would surely help a lot!!!

I am an international student from India and have got an admit from Mays (Texas AnM), Owen (Vanderbilt), Marshall (USC) and Mcdonough (Georgetown) with decent and similar scholarships. Wanted to gather more thoughts around which of them would be best in terms of opportunities (internship/employment)? I don't have pre/post mba preference in terms of location/weather.
My profile-
W/E: 8 years in IT industry (technology project management)
Post MBA goal : Product Management or Consulting, in IT industry
Current Location - India

Thanks a ton in advance!

Hi mbaMission,
Any inputs would be really helpful. Please advice about Owen vs Mays as well, owing to their higher scholarships compared to the other set.

Hi - thanks for writing, and congrats on these acceptances!

All of these schools recruit for consulting. While you do state that you don't have a geographic preference, do keep in mind that these programs each tend to skew a bit regionally (i.e. Marshall is the place to be if you have an interest in living in LA) so definitely do some reflection on where you'd genuinely be most happy post-MBA. In addition to that, since you'll be investing time and money into the MBA program, you want to make sure it's a strong fit. Have you visited each of these schools and talked to current students or alumni? Based on these interactions, in which program do you picture yourself the most? Also, the school's websites list graduates' post-MBA functions and industries, so you can see what % of the class enters consulting - this will serve as a good guide in terms of where the most opportunities may lie.

Hope that helps - reach out with any other questions!

Thanks a lot mbaMission! mbaMissionNishaT
I spoke to the students and have gone through the information on the school websites. I have not visited the schools though but of course would give a holistic thought on other parameters as you advised.
I totally understand that I need to decide which would be best fit for me, but based on your experience and my profile & post-mba goals, if you would need to vote between Owen and Mays (owning to their higher scholarship), which one would you recommend? Thanks.
