Hello,

Trying to decide which one to apply to, McCombs vs. USC.

Which one generally has a better reputation (as a business school) and offers greater employment opportunities for International students?

Which is one less competitive to get into?.

Thank You
RJ

My understanding is Mccombs is more tough to get into and has better repute than USC.

With due respect to Venksune, they are probably about even in terms of admission and reputation (no great surprise since they are in the same cluster).

The centers of the distribution (GPA and GMAT) of students are extremely similar. USC Marshall admits a smaller percentage of students (and a much smaller count) but Texas-Austin has a slightly higher yield.

It depends on what you want to do and where you want to do it. If you want to work in Asia, USC is probably better. If you want to work in Latin American, UT has an advantage. If you are interested in the entertainment industry, UCLA is excellent. If you are interested in the energy industry, UT is the better school. You can't just look at the overall rankings.

Good luck!
