Profile:

Male - 37
Canadian Citizen - Indian Origin
Oil and Gas Industry - 9 years of experience
Goals - 1 - Energy Consulting 2 - Internal Strategy within the Oil and Gas Industry
GMAT 710

Have worked in Canada and in Houston, TX.


Tepper has offered 30% of tuition as a scholarship.
KFBS - nothing.
Rice - just asked to call back after I was placed on a WL. Rice knows of my scholarship, but also my career goals that suit Houston better. I am assuming they would offer something.


I am wondering where to go. Till yesterday, when Rice was not in the picture, I was almost decided on Tepper with scholarship and personal fit.
But, if Rice offers money, it would be a tough choice and I wonder what advice can I get here?

Hi,

I think mihir0710 can help you as he shares you same filed interest and had Rice also in his schools.

Congrats Hiren!

Unless the location is a key factor for you, the decision has to be between KFBS and Tepper.

There is a steep difference in the brand value between Rice and Tepper, something that you will carry for rest of your career.

If at all you decide to go for Rice, negotiate hard on the scholarship, they are quite generous in that regard.

Good problem to be in. Congrats!

Tepper all the way. I always take sudden ranking jumps with a grain of salt. Only 3 years ago Rice was #33 so buyer beware. While Rice has a stellar undergraduate program, those "in the vine" know that the graduate programs lag behind.

Kudos, for that matured thought process. The same applies for a sudden fall in ranking.

In the case here, the difference between the two schools is a lot steeper than what the ranking suggests.

Thank you all for the insights.
Yes, I totally agree that Tepper is a better brand than Rice, on any given day.
Just that my goals of working in Energy Consulting made me reconsider the option.

I have finally decided to go with Tepper and I am excited.
