I'm very fortunate to have this problem. Ultimately, I like Duke slightly more, but I am wondering if the difference in financial aid is worth worrying about.

Background is in nonprofit space, doing everything from program management, analyst, finance coordinator and nonprofit consultant.

Aiming to do consulting post-mba in MBB, Accenture or Deloitte.

Any thoughts are appreciated!

That's a bit of a dated discussion so things have changed since then. Fuqua and Ross have been peer schools for a long time (scroll to the bottom of this page to see what other schools Fuqua students applied the most https://gmatclub.com/forum/fuqua-193/stats.html and you will see it is Kellogg and Ross - Ross has the same chart). Both have moved around rankings quite a bit but both place well into Consulting and Tech. Each has differences and slight pros and cons and I can see choosing Fuqua if you had equal offers. However, I don't feel it is enough to beat $50K of scholarship money (unless you have a network in NC or some other attachment to Team Fuqua).

My vote would be for Ross with the Full Scholarship but it is not my life :-)

Congrats on getting into both schools. I believe that there is no wrong choice to be made, however Ross has a higher ranking and free tuition. Unless there is something special about Durham, go to Ann Arbor.

You are in a very enviable position. I would love to be in your shoes. I think the Ross option with 100% scholarship is a no-brainer. Consulting at Ross and Fuqua are VERY comparable and you would have a decent shot at MBB and Deloitte at both schools. Tons of my friends (including myself) are recruiting consulting and had gotten several interviews. Let me know if you want to know about the recruiting process at Ross.

Ross all the way. Duke brand is nice but Ross is much stronger at this time. Plus the scholarship seals the deal.
