I just received my admission from Northwestern IMC and am facing difficulties deciding on which program to choose. As UT Austin is a newer program, there doesn't seem to be many posts on the program so I was wondering if anyone could provide any insights that can help me toward deciding!
I have accepted my admission at UT Austin and paid a deposit of 2000$, and even finished my career services interview. I thought I didn't have a chance to get into Northwestern, but it turns out I got admitted the last day of being on the waitlist!
It's very hard of a decision as the tuition at Northwestern is 84K, and 42K for UT Austin.
Northwestern- prestigious program, lots of alumni, focuses more on tech and ecommerce
UT Austin- new program (started in 2016), not as many alumni in the field as compared to Northwestern, but there's lots of alumni for McCombs (so could still be of great help when looking for jobs), focuses more on quant and analysis of data in targeting consumers.
I was wondering if anyone could provide any insights to the two programs, your opinions are of great help, thank you all so much!
