Can't go wrong either way -- both great schools. I'm biased (Fuqua 05, 9 years in marketing) -- but you are certainly not the first to face a similar choice. I encourage you to think about the 'surroundings' as well... 2 years in Durham, NC is quite different than two years in Chicago.

Talk to alums -- the admissions office should get you connected. Also, I'd be transparent w/ the admissions offices, you never know how else they might be able to help inform/sway your decision.

Remember -- there is not a magic choice here. Look at the companies that have hired marketing people from Kellogg and Fuqua the past two years -- which list looks more 'like' the type of company you want to go to (short-term and long-term?)

Best of luck!

Brian
