Hi Parikshit,

welcome aboard...

I guess Fisher is ranked better than Broad on the finance ranking ( ranked abt 15 in the US news for finance..i didnt c broad anywhr on the list...but these rankings are 2007..i donno abt the latest rankings )

If scholarship is not a criteria..then i personally think Fisher is a better option...i would like others 2 contribute as i guess im a bit biased towards fisher 😉

Hi Everyone,
I am a new entrant at PagalGuy.
I too have an offer for admission from Fisher and wouldlike to connect with my future classmates.
I am yet to hear regarding the scholarship decision.
I am more than willing to share my interview experience incase some people still have theirs scheduled for later.

Regards
