Blue719 Posted March 18, 2014 Share Posted March 18, 2014 Hey guys, I'm new to this forum, so I hope this goes well: I recently received a full tuition scholarship + generous living stipend + healthcare to UMich Ford, and an acceptance to SAIS with $0 aid (I'd be taking out more than $100K). I'd love to attend SAIS considering that it's one of the best schools in IR and heavily quant. I say this because after my two years, I'd ideally want to move back to CA (where I'm currently located) and work in the private sector or in some sort of a public-private partnership position (I'm thinking corporate social responsibility). I know the UMich deal is amazing, and Ford is a great school, however SAIS sends a greater portion of its' grads to the private sector (44%) versus UMich's 5%. Moreover, I worry that if I attend UMich, my network won't extend farther than Detroit. For any UMich folks on here, what's the network like in California? I think I'm also biased toward SAIS because I lived in DC for three years, are have been drinking the kool aid quite a bit. I hope someone tells me I'm an idiot and to run with the UMich offer because it's such a great deal and school! Plus, everyone seems to really enjoy the quality of life in Ann Arbor. Thoughts?
