Hi all,

I'm aware that there are a couple of Anderson vs Ross threads out there but I'd like to ask same question for technology / entrepreneurship concentration. I have been admitted to both without money and would like to work in west coast in technology / ecommerce (general management) after graduation or start a business depending on my financial situation. I am an Asian international student so I am also interested in the better school for Asians in terms of networking and student life.

Any advice is appreciated.

Thanks and good luck to those applying this year.

Vu.

I think Anderson is the obvious choice here. Take a look at the employment reports and you'll see that Anderson places heavily in Southern Cal and also the Bay Area. Demographically speaking, there's a reason some joke that UCLA stands for "University of Caucasians Lost among Asians" (I'm not trying to be offensive here)

Ross is a great school that places surprisingly well in the Northeast, but for your goals, I think Anderson is the right call.

Oh...and congrats on the admits!!!

For the record, I am the lone Ross voter. That is, I WAS until I looked more closely at the Anderson employment report. Of course, I knew Anderson placed loads of grads in California, but what I did not know is that Anderson places 20% of its class in Tech. I think the easy answer here is Anderson.

And, if you get into Haas, that makes this conversation moot. Although I probably don't need to tell you that :).

Lets get to the heart of the matter: Anderson has In N' Out and Pink Berry. Ross does not.

Advantage: Anderson

@CobraKai: :) your interpretation of UCLA is funny

Thank you everyone for your helpful advices and opinions. It's been tough cuz I like both schools. I'm leaning towards UCLA but have not decided yet, although I have to say Ross gives applicants a lot of love. At the moment, I'm still waiting for Haas decision and will be trying to get off Kellogg wait list.

Could you tell us what have you decided in the end?

Alena,

After I posted this topic I received 20k from Ross and 40k from UCLA and admission off waitlist from Kellogg. I have declined Ross and now am considering between UCLA and Kellogg.

Thanks again everyone for your replies.
