I would like some feedback from parents, alumni or current students.
My daughter is a graduating HS senior from NJ. She plans to study business in college, likely finance.
She is evaluating a number of public universities and is particularly interested in Indiana and Florida State. Both have great student life and the large school amenities she is looking for.
She was a direct admit to Kelley and is very excited about the business program at IU. She was also recently accepted to FSU.
She received merit scholarships at both universities, but the annual difference in tuition after merit aid is $23K, which is obviously significant. I am wondering whether the extra $100K or so to attend Kelley over 4 years is worth it in the long run. She ultimately plans to attend graduate/business school, so that cost has to be taken into consideration as well.
She likely plans to ultimately return to NJ for employment and I am wondering what career placement opportunities are like at both colleges. I know Kelley has a particularly strong reputation in this regard.
I am also interested in learning about the culture and “work/play” balance at each university, and how well each school would prepare her for the business world.
Thank you in advance for any feedback/suggestions.
