Hi everybody, I'm trying to figure out what I'm doing the next couple years and I'm having a hard time determining what would be best.

Here's the situation:

27 y/o non-minority with 4 years of work experience in pricing, polisci degree from a directional school, living in Atlanta.

I've been admitted to Ga Tech Scheller with financial aid covering ~$50k of the $65k tuition. I also applied for PT, but the aid won't carry over.

I got accepted into Emory with $40k in aid for the $124k FT program.

They also gave me $18k for part time.

I'm leaning towards Scheller FT for the program cost and the career services of the school.

However, I'm nervous that I won't get as good of an ROI on a FT program as a PT.

Currently I'm at $86k at a retail company as a pricing and promotions analyst. I really like my job and work/life balance. As well, there would be opportunities for me here to rise post - MBA. However, they will not sponsor me to get an MBA

Going PT would forfeit the really good aid I got, but I think would represent the highest-floor possibility.

I'm not completely sold on what I'd like to do post-MBA if I go FT.

I'm debating between consulting, non-technical PM or general management. I'm actually hoping that an MBA will help expose me to different aspects of the business world that I might not even know I'm interested in.

Consulting at a MBB or even a tier below would definitely help me salary and career-wise at the expense of my work/life balance but I'm not sure how competitive I would even be in that realm.

So with that background info, are there any costs/benefits that I am overlooking in my decision-making?

Am I right in worrying that I might not see a significant salary increase post-MBA if I go FT?

Thanks in advance for any advice.

Hi Gatoreagle72

Congrats for both schools :thumbup:

FT MBA is a transformational experience. You should enter with confidence, knowing what you will gain from it. It is not uncommon that you do not know what jobs fits you. But during the study you will discover your interests. Emory is better a choice in this case as it is known for its consulting recruitment and general management positions. The career office is one of the best among other universities and very friendly as described by friend there. Although it is more expensive, it has a good ROI. You MUST check the career reports of both schools with salaries. You are in Atalanta then you have great privilege that others do not have. So, it is better to go visit the school and open communication with career office or you can walk-in at any time. Going there will give you full picture about your investment and jobs and range of salaries that help you pay your loan. Also, pay the same visit to GT and have same info and then compare what suits you.

Good luck
