I am in a BIG dilemma as to which school to choose from.
the money does tip the balance.
- Great Brand
- Strong in Finance
- Good recognition in Europe and Asia, somewhat in US
- Some money
- Great brand
- 1 year

However, I'd still like to stick my neck out and express my opinion...for whatever its worth (in my opinion...doesn't count for much): this article by BusinessWeek does present some very convincing arguments. I have read in various newspapers and business magazines that this is the worst recession since the 1930's. However, I do not agree with the prediction that students who graduate during a recession will have to bear the ill effects of it for the remainder of their careers. We all believe in a fair system where talent and merit are rewarded in the long term and that such cycles may make the path to one's goal more arduous and realisation of such goals may take more time than anticipated initially. I guess that those who do not believe in meritocracy won't be planning to go to business school. To assume that one who graduates during a recession is bound to lose millions of dollars in renumeration does not seem fair to those who employ such graduates either.
my 2 cents.... (or perhaps even less).... those who choose to disagree with what I have written above...please let me know what you think...hope this forum can become a place for constructive argument.....
