Hi everyone, I have received an offer at UNC Kenan Flagler with a 15k per year merit fellowship (works out to approx 20% of tuition). I have also received an offer at Rice university's Jones School of business with a 45k per year merit fellowship (works out to approx 75% of tuition). Which of the two would you all recommend?

I am an Indian male, leaning towards recruiting for consulting post MBA. Open to other options as well. Definitely want to work (at least for a few years) in the US after graduating.

Any inputs/ advice would be appreciated.

Congrats for the admit :)

I do not lean for Rice for internationals. I have Indian friends last year who rejected offers like you as the placement was not well. You may reach out to current students. Also, KF is way far better for consulting, compared to Rice.

Hi Mo2men, thanks for the reply. Yes, I've heard that KF has strong consulting recruiting. Rice is more focused on energy consulting. Hence i'm leaning towards KF right now. Thanks for your thoughts on the same.

Although money does play a big role in deciding, based on your aspirations, i would say that KF seems to be a better choice.
Here are some numbers that I mentioned in another post.

Also, i would encourage you to talk to the ADCOM, show your interest about joining KF and say that money is a big factor for you ask for additional scholarship. I have seen some people getting good scholarships.

All the best!
