Hi,

I already asked this question som time ago but things have changed since then(apologise to those people against these kind of threads). Ross called me to increase my scholarship to 20m/year. While Tuck does not offer me any scholarship. I had decided to go to Tuck last week, but with these new figures I don't have it clear anymore. What do you think?

My goals: After MBA join a consulting firm and after a few years I would like to start my own company.
I am an international applicant.

Your thoughts are welcome!

Also take into consideration how you like the location of each school. If these factors are equal, than as a international applicant, I would prefer Ross due to the money. Both schools I feel will equally open doors, and both Ross and Tuck seem to be making great strides school wise.

I think it comes down to your personal preferences/financial situation.

Do you have a preference for smaller vs larger class size? - elective classes: both schools will give you a great general management education, but which one has more electives of interest to you? - hypothetically, if you can't do consulting, which school has stronger placement for your back-up option? Personally, I'm a huge fan of Tuck. All the alums I spoke with from that program are incredibly nice, down-to-earth and even when I was just an undecided admit, were willing to offer career advice, etc. The main reason I ultimately decided against it was that Hanover was a bit too small for my liking, in comparison with Evanston or Chicago. I didn't apply to Ross, so am not as familiar with their program.

Ross had far better energy placements and I really enjoyed the school. I think you've got to visit both almost half the people I talked to at GBR were deciding between Ross and Tuck. You can't go wrong either way but geographical preference and other factors make these schools unique in good ways - pick the best fit for you.
