Accepted to Michigan - Ross and Austin - McCombs P/T!!!

Post Sat Jun 26, 2010 7:37 am
I am really at a loss about where to go however. Ross is better ranking wise and I can major in finance. Austin you can only major in general management but its in Austin, the best economy in the country and Michigan is the worst economy in the country. I loved the people I talked to at both. I will be moving and looking for new employment wherever I go.

Austin has better weather, better business environment, better pretty much everything. You can switch to the full time program at Ross after a year if I feel like it.

Where should I go?

Have you been up to Ross since being admitted? Or can you reach out to the school prior to making your decision? maybe they have connections or something.. I'm not sure... McCombs is a great school too! Congrats

I understand. It just occurred to me that you were worried about the job market in MI for your time during the program as opposed to after since you would be a part time student. That makes far more sense. I will say this (being from Ann Arbor and currently living in Ohio): the economy in Ann Arbor stays somewhat insulated from the MI economy in general. That being said, I would look deeper into the job prospects in Ann Arbor further before making a final decision. Perhaps you can try to find a job right now and if you are able to find something, you would obviously feel more secure in going there.

Although I try to be objective, I am admittedly somewhat biased toward Michigan. Perhaps someone else can weigh in? It might help to know what industry you work in. I think it would be wise to consider job prospects specific to your industry rather than generally.

Good luck!
