Notes:

Partner is from PNW and post-MBA goal is to end up in that region in tech/CPG roles. Foster made the most sense due to location and recruiting opps in and around Seattle. Was difficult to say no to McCombs as I’m from Texas and the brand carries a lot of weight in the state, but Foster is the right choice for me and my family.

Notes:

Foster was the top choice given the regional connections to large tech companies, so I'm very excited. The IE tech program was very compelling, but felt like more of a risk for foreign applicants given the current conditions in Spain.

Notes:

It's a marathon, not a sprint! Most useful advice I received was to look past the rankings and think 20 years down the line, not 2 -- there will be nice people at every school, but what school has the connections to companies/industries you're interested in? It's a 2 year job search, so very important to keep in mind.

any suggestions? I got ND MBA/MSBA full scholarship and the other schools decent amount of scholarship too. I am an international student, post goal is tech or 2nd tier consulting in the US. Seems Foster has strong connection with tech firms but ND offers dual degree and full scholarship

Notes:

Fit and career path were the biggest factors for me, followed by scholarship. I still have undergrad loans (first gen college student, expensive engineering school) so getting aid really helped. Visit all your schools to feel them out. Get your resume reviewed by someone in recruiting/hiring.
