Hi Guys,

I'm going to add one more to the Ross-related scenarios.

I was admitted to Anderson with a 20k/year fellowship and to Ross with none. I'm still undecided on my area of focus but hope to work in Asia following graduation.

All else being equal, is Ross' "global brand" and slightly higher reputation worth foregoing a fellowship at Anderson if my concentration won't necessarily be in one of Ross' strengths (like consulting)?

Thanks for the help!

Thanks for the help! Anderson's ties to Asia are very strong, probably stronger than Ross' if you're looking at East Asia. What are you looking to go into? All else equal + East Asia (and bonus of$$), I'd be inclined to take Anderson over Ross.

I'm undecided on my concentration. I have a background in non-profit management and may continue that route, but want to speak with career services/alumni about my options (and how realistic they are considering my background/skill set) before ruling out more traditional paths.

Hey, thanks for all the input guys.

Two things. First, I come from a cold weather state and don't mind a long winter. Until I read your posts giving the tie to UCLA due to its weather, climate hadn't crossed my mind.

Second, both schools have what I'm looking for in the social impact space. But with the exception of Finance (which I'm not considering), Ross seems to be quite a bit stronger than Anderson in the more traditional fields.

I would be proud to attend either school but the edge goes to Ross. I'm planning to appeal to financial aid for a fellowship. Going into the appliction process, I wasn't sure how I would be received and applied to a range of schools. I've received some very strong scholarships from lower-end Top 25 programs. Should I mention these in my appeal? Thank you again!

Hello again. Just want to let everyone know the result of my fellowship request.

It was not granted.

Although not a deal-breaker, attending Ross out of pocket would be a pretty serious financial stretch. Nonetheless, Ross is where I want to be. I'll be making my final decision in the next few days. Wish me luck!
