Which college to go on exchange (McCombs, Emory, Ross etc)

edited November 2012 in Business School - MBA
So I don't have much experience about American colleges but I'm planning to spend a semester here in the fall of 2013 so I was wondering which one to choose. Im going for my 2nd year in my Master (MBA) and I'm specializing in finance/consulting (and I have some accounting background too). The tuition is paid by my home university.

What I consider important (the first ones being more important):

-The level of education, reputation etc.
-The city/study area
-The business connections/making valuable connections for later use

-Travelling opportunities
-The gender percentages (I'm a male, so I wouldn't mind having some females around)
-Sports to some degree

The universities to choose from:

- Goizueta Business School
- Kelley School of Business
- Ross School of Business (the only one I'm not sure I'm getting in to)
- McCombs School of Business
- Kenan–Flagler Business School

...and I can also go to Cornell for about 10-15k $.

So how about it? I'd be happy for any information that I can gather!

    Thanks mate, there was some valuable information from what I can gather!

    Question now is if people think it's worth spending approx. $13 k on a semester at Cornell?

    And on another note, do you guys know if I'm able to pay for the fourth term and get my degree at the American university? Im currently studying at Copenhagen Business School.
