Hello everyone,

I posted earlier to help me decide between Ross and Tepper at the end of round 1. A vast majority of you voted in favor of Ross, and I ended up submitting my deposit there. I was eventually accepted off of the waitlist at Anderson, so now I am in a position where I have to decide between Ross and Anderson.

To reiterate a few key items from my previous post:
• I have an undergraduate degree in Computer Science and 5+ years' experience in Tech consulting
• I want to transition to Big Tech in a Product Management role
• I am also very interested in entrepreneurship and would also love to try and work on my startup ideas in school
• Given a choice, I would like to stay on the west coast
• Ross is offering $40k in scholarship and Anderson is offering $30k. Even with the $10k difference, Anderson's tuition ends up being about $5k cheaper than Ross. All things considered, the cost differential between the schools is negligible and is a non-issue in my decision-making process

From all my research and speaking to current students and alumni, Anderson seems to have a slight edge for Tech and entrepreneurship given its west coast location and the number of students choosing to enter the tech industry. I would appreciate if anyone has any thoughts or inputs on my situation.

Thanks!
Current Student

Recruiting at Anderson is mostly one’s own responsibility. That’s how west coast schools are.... Ross is more attractive to employers and has a stronger brand and standing.

Anderson is not stronger in tech, just that’s where people end up... many coming from tech too.

I would stick to Ross too. I would not sacrifice the opportunity.

Good luck
