Hi all- I'm a full-time admit for Fall 2013, trying to decide between 2 schools

GMAT: 770
GPA: 3.97 (at UNC)
NYU Stern: half tuition scholarship
UNC: full ride + generous stipend
Desired field: internal strategy or business development (the latter possibly within a rotational program) in financial sector
Current location: NYC
Desired geography: in/near a large east-coast city

Thoughts: very thankful to have two attractive options, having a hard time picking one. A bit uncertain/worried about getting interviews and having good networking opportunities in my desired field outside of the Southeast region if I attend UNC. Also gunshy about the extra cost of NYU (tuition & living) given that I won't be heading into ibanking or consulting.

thoughts??

You may not be headed to ibanking/consulting, but you still are thinking about the finance industry (at least enough to call it out here), so Stern will open up many doors for you. And you have half of your tuition covered, which puts you in a better spot than most people.

UNC recruiting will be very regional for mid-Atlantic/Southeast. Unless you want to end up in the Carolinas for life, I'd go with Stern. I think most people in this situation would lean Stern as well, but then again, since you went to UNC undergrad, you might have other ties to the Carolinas that make that full-ride there really compelling (withholding the obvious extra $and lower standard of living for expenses). _________________ aerien Note: I do not complete individual profile reviews.

Yes, it might be a financial burden right now, but in the long run, I think Stern will open lot more doors. By the way, you have stellar numbers. Did you apply anywhere else? _________________ Duke MBA Class of 2016 Intern Joined: 09 Nov 2011 Posts: 26 Location: India GMAT 1: 770 Q50 V44 Followers: 0 Kudos [?]: 8 [0], given: 1 Re: UNC or Stern (full-time) [#permalink] ### Show Tags 11 Apr 2013, 20:02 Are planning to return to your planet Krypton after the MBA ? Amazing stats! Pick Stern. The effort you'll put into recruiting while at UNC, if you put in the same while at NYU, you could land up pretty much where you want to. _________________ Ah well, may those few last steps that remain unfold.
