Hi,

I have got an admit from both the schools.
Smith providing full waiver of the first year tuition fees plus GA
Simon providing partial waiver on the entire tuition fees

My target industry -
Priority 1 - Strategy Consulting
Priority 2 - Tech Consulting

Scholarship is not much of a concern though. I want to go to a school which has a better
1. Brand
2. MBA Program for consulting
3. international exposure
4. Experiential Learning relative to theoretical learning
5. alumni network
6. Job Prospects
7. Diversified Class

Which one would you choose and why?
I am also keen to know more about the geographical location, in terms of, living expenses, harsh climate, commuting issues, crime rate* (Perhaps, subject to debate)

Thanks.

If I were you: Smith with full waiver. Simon is not known for consulting anyway

Thanks alphabeta1234. I am glad you said so. However, I would like to know your opinion and rationale behind this judgement. :)

Should you would not have received a scholarship from either of the colleges, which one would you've chosen then? Please tell me your GMAT score and profile a little. Hope you don't mind me asking.
