I am a law graduate from India with ~6 years of work experience in the corporate (legal) sector.

Post MBA - Not decided. Interested in general management but open to all industries/sectors. It depends upon the kind of networking opportunities I get through college.

STEM courses.

Simon cost after scholarship - 47k
Mendoza cost after scholarship - 56K
W&M cost after scholarship - 41K

Non-STEM

TAMU (Mays) cost after scholarship - 28k

Considering the current economic environment I am not sure which one is the best choice. Any advice?

Congrats on your admits and scholarships. Both Simon and Mendoza are STEM programs. I would focus on one of these. I probably slightly favor Mendoza for its stronger undergrad name of Notre Dame but I am probably grasping for straws here. Simon is heavy Finance and has 40% international students (I feel 30-35% is kind of the perfect mix with 40% being a bit on the high side when you are attending a US MBA program).

My vote would slightly teeter towards Mendoza. Also happens to be the most expensive of your choices...

For all the reasons bb mentioned, I'd pick Mendoza also.

Maybe ask if they can match your best 'after scholarship' cost to make your decision easy. They'll probably want to see your other offers; ask them for an additional $15k (to match W&M) and hope they give you $9 (to match Stern).

Good luck to you.

disclaimer: I’m biased.

I would go to Notre Dame-Mendoza of those 3.

So my first question is did you get into the MBA/MSBA program at Mendoza? That is a dual degree which is stem and looks good on paper from an optics standpoint.

From a network standpoint, the ND alumni is very highly rated. They are a cohesive unit that really bonds. Part of it is due to the small nature of the program. Part of that also is due to the fact there is a culture to give back to the University. It is really ingrained there. The undergrad is also extremely strong and you can tap into that network as a member of the ND family. I haven’t heard many people say they attended “Mendoza”. They attended “Notre Dame”.

From a recruiting standpoint, do you want to be anywhere specific? All 3 of those are regional by nature but the ND brand is more global. Love, hate or indifferent to ND, you have most likely heard of the school.

From a jobs standpoint, I can’t attest to knowing the other programs statistics but ND tends to be trying to get more people into consulting. Certain companies recruit on campus but don’t expect MBB (moot point for these 3 unless I’m wrong?) You also will have to network like hell. Being in its own zip code is a blessing and curse for ND.

Affordability is probably a moot point here as none of them are in major cities. All your after cost prices are within striking distance of each other. Although it is nice that ND is at least relatively close to Chicago. Not super close but 2 hours is better than Rochester being like 6 hours from NY.

Finally, American football is a glorious time. Definitely not related to career at all but a very nice perk.

I don’t think you can go wrong with any of the programs but the above are just some insights I have ascertained during the application process.

Thank you for replying to my post.

I have been accepted to the full-time MBA program not the dual degree. I hope to move back to Seattle after college but I think Amazon, Microsoft, Google - all these companies recruit from both Simon & Mendoza.

I prefer Notre Dame for the brand and network but Simon has STEM-designated courses. Going to connect with students from all these colleges to understand the job prospects better.

I decided to enroll in Simon - mainly because of STEM option.
