Hey guys, I got into USC with 85k in scholarship, McCombs with 35k and was wailisted at Ross and UCLA.

My post-MBA goal is to be a Product Manager in tech, preferably for a well-known company like Amazon, Google, FB, etc but I would be happy to start at a "less prestigious" company like Zynga, eBay, Adobe, etc if I need to.

I would also like to stay in CA for the long-term (I see myself establishing roots and retiring in the Bay Area), though I wouldn't mind working outside of it for a few years if I need to gain experience to be able to break into Silicon Valley.

IF I get accepted by Ross and UCLA, which of the four schools would you guys recommend me to choose? I am assuming I will get no scholarship from Ross nor UCLA since I am a waitlisted candidate anyways.

If I could only choose between USC or McCombs, which of these two would you guys recommend?

Thanks!

It would be helpful to know your background. If you're a developer or have strong product background, I don't think tech companies will care too much about your business school rankings and will give you an interview. As such, USC might be a good choice. I suggest reaching out to current students and alumni with your background and ask about their experience.

I would go with McCombs, it’s a great school for Tech and US$ 30k more affordable than UCLA or Ross (with your Scholarship, it would go be over US$ 60k)
