Worst case would be they will regard a US school as equally prestigious, if not better? From my knowledge, I've found 9/10 people immediately respect a US education without much thinking. Please feel free to share your thoughts if I'm missing anything.

Thanks to both of you, help me out, I need it badly!
200% Agreed.
US Schools definitely better reputated than any other B Schools. But from my personal point of view, I give a good point to ROI & employment %. In both the cases, some Asian colleges are better than any middle tier US B Schools. In case you are not looking for Asian job, obviously US B Schools are better one.

Frankly speaking, I am inclined towards US B Schools only compared to Asian B Schools. :)
clawhammer wrote: @ GMAT_1986_subha, How would you compare UT Austin vs Texas A&M, given my scenario. Please share some insight.
UT is better than TAMU in most academic categories, but going to TAMU isn't going to confine your opportunities when you graduate. Going to TAMU gives you a great Aggie network that in my honest opinion will give you better networking abilities than at UT.
You'll find great people and opportunities at both schools, it really just comes down to where you think you'll fit in and where you can see yourself at more than the other.

However as per an Indian Alum of Wharton, it may be easier to get a job in Texas as a graduate of A&M's business school because of their alumni network. But again, Both these B Schools have their own strong areas. Not sure about UT strong area[it may be finance & accounting], but Mays is strong in general management & entrepreneurship.

I believe the attitude at A&M is much friendlier. Much more student oriented.

All of these are my opinion after reading about both the MBA. You have to find your fitments based on your requirements.

I hope this can help you a bit :)

I got accepted at TAMU Mays FT MBA Program. Got a small scholarship and resident tuition status, which overall makes the program very affordable as it's already one of the best in terms for money.

Still waiting on for some other schools (applied all in R2):

- Austin
- Pittsburgh (Just got notification for interview)
- SUNY (Buffalo)

Had pre-application interviews with Rochester (Simon). And also thinking if I should apply to McGill.

Please let me know your thoughts on MAYS, more importantly any clue on the student life / environment of the school. Is the school gloomy or fun? Is it collaborative? Would I see enough diversity?

If I get admission to Pittsburgh, SUNY, Rochester or McGill - all of which rank lower to MAYS, any specific schools you'd suggest?

My interest is : Marketing + SCM

Please post your thoughts and insight on TAMU!


Thanks for starting this thread. I'm planning to apply for 2014, any advice on essays, recommendations or applying for Mays B School in general? I have a BS in science, owned a business for several years and did well. However, undergrad GPA not very good (2.7) and not sure yet how I'll do on GMAT yet. Any advice on how best to apply, or what TAMU is looking for in a candidate in general would be helpful. Thank you.
