Mays Vs Mccombs

Post Thu Sep 01, 2011 8:22 am
Hi,

I am about to start my application procedure.
My counsllor told me that I should choose either Mays or Mccombs but not both.
I am not much convinced with the reasoning provided by her.
Please advise
1) which one is better? 2) my realistic chances of getting into these schools 3) chances of getting scholarships in these schools

My brief profile : 24/Indian female/700/B.tech (chemical)-62%/avg extra curricular
I want to come back to India after completing my MBA.

Hey Prachi!
Well, I don;t see any reason why should "not apply to both". Do you like both schools? Can they get you to your goals? then apply to both! And even more if you can.

Generally speaking McCombs has a slightly better ranking and reputation than Mays. As for your chances of getting it, at Mays it should be better than at McCombs, but at both relatively good. As for scholarships it goes about the same i.e. better chance of getting it at Mays.

Hope this helps, and if you got anything else, you just drop us a line.
