I got acceptance from Tepper (with no Scholarship), Rice(80% of Tuition per academic year) and Olin (Full scholarship). Post MBA industry is preferably Consulting but I would be open to exploring other options. Any advice is much appreciated!

Thanks

Unless the finances are a huge concern, Tepper is the winner here if you look at your medium and long-term avenues. Even short-term (post-MBA), Tepper will give you access to better recruiters, more recruiters, and better roles in comparison. This opinion is just for the basis of comparison and to answer your query, not to criticize the other schools - they are great schools in their own right.

Nicky14 Tepper is definitely the best school/program however I realize that those are great offers. If you are unsure of what you want to do post-MBA that is risky in my opinion. If you take on a lot of debt I think you should be clear as to how you can repay that and clear on staying on that path. Otherwise you might be stuck in a job you hate to repay loans. Get clear on whether or not consulting is the path, study the employment stats, get a read on whether or not 1) that is your interest - do informational interviews and 2) if so, if there is a big difference in recruitment. Check and see what your target companies require in terms of GMAT scores, if they recruit there, and what support there is for cracking case interviews. Make sure to suss out how the career options differ: who will buy your MBA education and for how much

My feeling is to always have a very clear objective and payback plan before entering b-school. You would not gamble 200K on anything else without a clear plan

Congrats on your admits!

As an international student who may or may not get an H1B after graduation, considering a scholarship offer is probably wise. Being on the far end of the Top20, Tepper will get some employment interest on campus and open some doors but I don't think it is $150K better than Olin in my opinion. I would perhaps see spending $50K or maybe $75 for 10 ranking spots and to have the bragging rights of being within the Top 20.... but that's me.

My vote is for Tepper, I mean Rice is also good... but Tepper has great consulting and tech recruiting (source employment reports)

I think like others have mentioned--you really need to think critically about post-mba goal. Hard to do now, but it will make the difference. For example if you wanted finance in texas...you know the answer. If you want tech...Tepper takes the cake easily. If you are fine with non-MBB consulting then Tepper will set you up the best and probably a reliable bet. You have a strong GMAT which may give you a bite at the MBB apple from Tepper but probably not the other two. Employment reports can sometimes be vague so I would reach out to students/club members for more granular data.

Also, any chance to negotiate with Tepper?

Congrats

I would take the money from Olin and work hard independently and through career office to find a job. Olin career office is good and tries to help but you need to budget some travel outside St Louis for interviews.

Good luck

I was making a poorly delivered joke. :X

I meant "+1" in the sense that I agreed with bb's post. However, I put "+150000" because in this scenario that's how many dollars OP would save by picking Olin.

:cool:

So yes, in case anyone misunderstood, I think Olin is def the right call here.

Thank you for clarifying! :-)

I took it that way but it was a bit cryptic ;-)
