I chose Notre Dame over Northwestern as the Notre Dame environment had a strong ethics and strategy focus to their curriculum. I also felt a sense of family throughout the interview process which included past alumni in my social network. This family environment was proven throughout the program as my cohort was very close and will remain close post-graduation. Competition was good but not over powering and everyone wanted everyone to be successful. This was a wonderful part of the program that made the tough/stressful times much more rewarding.
