  1. I have received admits from Columbia MS&E program, Johns Hopkins University MEM and Dartmouth MEM. So far I think: Columbia : + has great prestige, great location - quant heavy, class size >90, which makes it a bit more impersonal than the other two Johns Hopkins: + much cheaper than the other two, small size which helps creating strong bonds with faculty, co-students - not as prestigious as an Ivy, courses are not so exciting Dartmouth: + great curriculum, great networking, small size - location, very expensive Can anyone help me with this one. I am so troubled.
  2. Hello Everyone! I have been accepted to Duke MEM and Columbia MS&E Programs starting Fall'17 and need to decide between the two in next 2 days due to my deadline for deposit. I am EXTREMELY confused between these two schools. My main concern is "Choosing better ranked university or better ranked program"? Both can be completed in 1 calendar year. Duke has no doubt one of the best MEM Programs (ranked 3rd in the world) and huge campus and great university ranking (11/US) but is in Durham NC. Total cost is aprox 75k USD Columbia has the Ivy League tag to it, not known for its MEM but is in NYC and ranked 3-4 points above Duke overall. Total cost is approx 110k USD which is very expensive for me considering I will be an international Student and taking loans for my Masters program. I am from mechanical engineering background who wishes to work as a special consultant in future for engineering firms in fields ranging from Supply Chain, Operations, Innovation technology, Optimizing Manufacturing processes etc. I haven't been to US yet but do not mind NYC or Durham given that I get to network. As the University ranking and Program rankings difference for both negates the other, I would really appreciate your insight on how much does location matter in terms of NYC and Durham for job opportunities? Outside US, people know Columbia better than Duke, Does this hold true within US as well? Does brand value matter to an extent that a similar ranking school which is not as popular but with a better program should be declined? How is the student life at these two schools? How is the MEM faculty, student competitions, work load and alumni network specific to both these programs at these schools? Does Duke being part of MEMPC holds greater relevancy in MEM course for future recruiters? How does the industry collaboration opportunities given to MEM students vary between these schools? Sorry for the long post. I feel regardless of what I choose, at some point I guess I am going to regret not taking the other in some way. As this is something where I am investing all of my life savings, I want to be sure of what I choose. I would really appreciate your honest feedback on above even if you're able to answer just few of my concerns and not all. Thanks a lot for your time!
  3. Hey everyone! Im currently in the process of choosing grad schools and I am kind of lost between those two universities mentioned above. Can I get advice on the university? Anything would behelpful! (Student life, academics, post grad careers, career fairs) Thank you!
  4. Anyone applying for Stanford's Management Science & Engineering MS program. I will be applying by their early action deadline next month.
