Re: Duke Fuqua and UNC KF

Post Mon Mar 28, 2011 11:44 am
Hi,

I have received my admit decision from both Duke and UNC KF. While Duke did not offer me any assistance, UNC is offering me a Fellowship of $30 K per year. I am in a bit of a dilemma right now ! Would you mind giving me some advice regarding this?

My background is in engineering (public sector). I wish to go into international consulting, focusing on infrastructure & public sector.

If you could also comment on whether it is possible to talk to Duke Fuqua with this update and asking for a reconsideration (basically bargain !), I will truly appreciate that.

Thank you for your response,
Niladri.

Without making any judgements about the two programs:

If you are able to jump a tier of school, then the heck with the money. It's your judgement whether you think you are jumping a tier here. Your background isn't a factor in my opinion. The question would be how you interact with the students.

I have personally had GREAT experiences with KF people.

Full Disclosure: I went to Duke undergrad, I worked for Pratt, I was accepted at KF.
