Hi all, I am actually torn between Tepper and USC right now. Both are great programs, and I am currently interested in Consulting or Finance (undecided with Tech). I have secured scholarship from external and want to return to SEA Post-MBA. Any advice on which I should choose considering alumn network, intern/full time opportunity ?

No scholarship at Fuqua. Consulting outcomes between Tepper and Johnson in my situation seemed like a wash. Not interested in banking. Prefer to live in a city instead of rural. Very excited for Pittsburgh!

With 6 YOE, multiple promotions, and awards, I targeted an M7 despite a low GPA (3.22/5). I hoped my GRE and overall application would offset my GPA, but they didn’t.I'm grateful for the offers but, not thrilled. Will I be ridiculous to give up this offers to reapply to M7 in Sep. or should I be thinking about this differently?

Really choosing between LBS and Yale. I want to pivot in some fashion in the climate space (pro for Yale), and I want to have a dynamic US / Europe career. I have been living in the US for the past decade and have citizenship in both. Would have to build up a network in EU which I don't have. Could study abroad at both these schools. Advice?
