I am an international applicant (Indian). As of now, I have received admits from UCLA Anderson with $50k scholarship and Kelley with $60k scholarship. My post-MBA goal is to go into Strategy Consulting. Which school should I choose? Choosing Kelley would mean lesser financial burden (tuition and living expenses are less, plus more scholarship) than UCLA. However, UCLA is a better brand, plus the benefits of the location. How much of a difference would it make 10 years down the line if I choose Kelley over UCLA or vice versa? Any thoughts are welcome. Thanks!

Man in 20 years I don’t think you are going to care about the rankings difference or the 10k and some differences in rent. I think you will remember the amazing time you had going to school in LA for 2 years.

Also I could be wrong on this, but I don’t think MBB recruits at Kelley. Also if you decide to change gears and do any informal recruiting LA gives you a lot more options.

Go to UCLA.
Significantly better with moderately higher cost. MBB won't be easy at UCLA, but you will have significantly higher chances of landing a good strategy consulting job out of UCLA.
If you look at US News Ranking, its only a difference of 5 ranks, but the "overall score" difference is significant and places UCLA clearly a tier above. I feel "peer group" quality will also be higher.

UCLA - better brand and way more recognised internationally if you decide to work outside the US post graduation.
