I have been admitted to both with scholarship. In Rice, I am getting a scholarship of $90k while in McDonough I am getting a scholarship of $40k. I am an international student and would be looking for a job in marketing in US post graduation. Which school would be better for me? TIA.

Jones... The two programs are ranked pretty similarly and the $50K goes a long way as long as you are OK with Texas and don't really really want to be in DC for any personal reason.

Hey BB. Thanks for the reply. I don't have any problems with Texas or any affiliation with DC. But the confusion is because of the brand name. Will Georgetown's name on my resume work better in the long term for me? Also, I heard that job prospects of international students aren't good in DC because most of the jobs are federal jobs.

Also, in FT rankings of 2019, there is a huge gap in rankings of McDonough and Rice.

I would choose Rice.

Rice has a solid reputation in Houston & Texas. If you don't mind having a career in Texas, go for it!

Texas is booming and lower COL. 90k off tuition is a huge deal!
