Which business school should i go to?

qwerty5056qwerty5056 Registered User Posts: 8 New Member
I got admitted into UT Austin McCombs School of Business and UT Dallas Jindal School of Business.

For UTD, I am getting a full ride and was offered a place in their Davidson Management honors program.
For UT, I will get no financial aid and was only accepted into their regular business program.

I know that UT is ranked higher for business and campus life is awesome there, but I am getting a full ride for UTD and into their honors program.

Which should I pick?

    Free is hard to beat! How important is the money to your family? Do you have any plans to go to graduate school (more tuition money)? If you will have to go into debt to attend UT Austin, and you will not for UTD - I would tell you to avoid the debt (your first good business decision). I also think there is value in being a big fish in a small pond rather than being a number at UT Austin. Here is an interesting talk given by Malcolm Gladwell on why people should not attend Harvard (kinda applies in your case) - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3UEwbRWFZVc. Good Luck - both are very good schools!

    How much is UT? $40K total?

    The real question is what kind of job do you want? If you want to be considered for NYC and San Fran jobs, McCombs is the way to go. If you want to stay local, do equities in Dallas (google it).
