I am a transitioning vet starting this fall. Deciding between Olin/Carlson/Goizueta. 100% Post 9/11 GI Bill. 100% covered at Olin and Carlson, limited Yellow Ribbon spots at Goizueta so may spend some out of pocket there. Carlson also offered a significant living stipend on top of GI Bill.

Pursuing marketing post MBA.

Wash U revamp is intriguing and reputation of Goizueta is hard to walk away from. Loved my visit to Minnesota and living stipend is compelling. I am pretty flexible on location post-MBA. I am slightly concerned that Carlson does not carry a national name and could hurt in recruiting/post mba employment.

Hello HeelBear12

Quite good options you have here. If your post mba target is consulting than you can think about Emory. Also because of the Cola link (Marketing), I would personally have chosen Emory. Money offered is not that different from all the schools so again very close.
But It would be interesting to see what others say about this.

All the best !

Congratulations on your admits!!! Also, thank you for your service and sacrifice.

Emory would be the strongest option of all. I think it would help to quantify your costs and understand what kind of $$ we are talking about here. I think if it is less than 30% of the total, you are clearly better off at Emory. That would be my take. I know it can be hard to focus on what matters the most or see how offers stack up coming out of the military, so I would recommend connecting with military/veteran community at both of these programs - they have them and you can ask AdCom for an intro.

All of these are also very regional, which means you can get a job anywhere in the US on your own, but if you want help from the school/alums, it will be within 200 mile radius of the school and you have a strong opportunity to end up within that Radius. Where is the rest of your family and network? Your family and folks may not matter a whole lot now but it will come into play once you get kids in 10 years and once your family starts aging in 20. You don't want to be flying cross country with little kids for Christmas and pay $500/one way or fly every few years. It also helps to have a networks of aunts, uncles, preachers, etc who can connect you with execs and employers. You have served your time in the military, and many people who know you, will be very eager to help you with recruiting/connections. Don't discard those opportunities.

P.S. Pinging a few of the current students abhimahna :-)

I strongly agree with bb here. Considering your goals, Emory seems to be the strongest option here. See you in a few months. :)

Good luck :-)

Congrats

If the cost is almost as stated by bb, the here is another vote for Emory. I know that Olin reshaped its mba program to make global. Ypu can make the same in Emory.

Good luck

Thanks to everyone for the input so far! To add context, I could pay anywhere between $0 and $7,500 a semester at Goizueta. VA Benefits are applied every semester so it could change depending on when I apply compared to other students. At Carlson I will pay $0 and they added a $12,500/year living stipend. Thanks again, I am excited to visit all three schools for their visit days!

Good luck with the school visits. I think at those rates I am starting to like Carlson more ;-)
