ForumWatch: Comparing MBA Financial Aid

Posted by: Louis Lavelle on February 10, 2012

Even though business school applicants must consider many factors when deciding which MBA program to attend, they sometimes have no choice but to consider practical matters, such as money, first. Recently, Eric23, a participant in the Bloomberg Businessweek Business School Forums, compared financial aid awards received from the University of Rochester Simon Graduate School of Business and the George Washington University School of Business to determine where to enroll. Others joined in the conversation and offered advice on how to go about making a decision. One person suggested that Eric23 calculate the cost of living, while another advised further research about the programs. What recommendation would you make? Visit the “Choosing schools” discussion thread and share your thoughts.
