UCLA Anderson ($$$) vs. UNC Kenan-Flager [#permalink]

I was fortunate to have been admitted to two awesome programs - UCLA Anderson with a full-tuition scholarship and UNC Kenan-Flagler with no money.

I'm a bay area native who is keen to stay in California post-MBA. my background is in B2B tech/payments marketing and I'm looking to pursue a career in B2C tech marketing or product management after my MBA. In addition to a great job, I'd like to get the following out of my MBA experience: sense of community, robust leadership opportunities, strong quantitative skills.

I'm drawn to Anderson because of the money, the school's strong placement stats in tech, but am not so sure about the program's sense of community/school spirit. I'm drawn to UNC because my boss got his MBA from there, the school's strong leadership development curriculum, and the school's well known culture... but I'm not so keen on relocating to what appears to be the middle of nowhere and spending a ton of money on my MBA education.

I should also mention that I'm married and hubby and I want to relo to a place where he'll either be able to keep his job or find a new one pretty easily (he works in tech sales management).

Would love to hear your thoughts!

I was also admitted to Goizueta, and am on the waitlist for Haas and Michigan... if anyone has opinions there, I'd welcome that as well.

Haas is actually my top choice, but I know that even if I get off the waitlist, I'd have to pay for my education as scholarship funds will likely be depleted.

Given your aspirations, I think Anderson is a great deal. You are in good location to visit Anderson and experience your 'fit'. Also, somehow you will still be with your network which will be helpful during recruiting.

UNC is great -- but as much as I am a huge fan (going there) I think UCLA looks like the better choice. Yes, it may be more challenging to get the tight-knit group feel there, but if you make it a priority you can
Probably make it happen.
