Finally, took the bold step!!

Turned down the admission-offer that ISB had for me. The reason I am calling this as a bold move is that I have still not figured out the finances for Emory completely. 😐 Was busy in some other important tasks and have not taken any step on working on this in last few days.

But in any case, I am in no position to deposit INR 2 Lakhs that ISB would need as a deposit in case I want that safe in my kitty too. I am sure that Emory would come up with a no-cosigner loan that it is working on actively as per the Accepted Students website. Even in the absence of it, I guess I would somehow be able to arrange for the living expenses. 

I know ISB V/s Emory (with schol) is a debatable issue. I am very clear about what I want from my B-school and hence, clearly it’s Goizueta for me. I understand that this issue deseves a detailed post.. Don’t worry, it’ll be here very soon. Keep watching this space.

    Congratulations for finalizing the decision. I wonder “the prospect of living/working in US” makes people put less weightage to ISB. Just a thought. Anyway congrats once again.

    I’m also going to Goizueta this year. I was hoping for advice on getting a loan. How does that work? It would be great if you could get in touch reza_abbasy@yahoo i could use some help on the procedure.

    take care

    Tough choice. I had admission to NYU and Haas, but turned down both to go to ISB. I have my reasons, but I’d never prefer Emory over ISB.

    Not only you have to worry about the loans, you also have to worry about the work visa after you graduate. End of the day, if you want to come back home, Emory has none to very minimal brand value in India. Even in US, other than in Atlanta, you will find it hard to find recognition for Emory.

    Good luck.

    @anon and Abhinav:
    Well, I had my reasons for picking up Goiziueta over ISB. Will write a separate post for the same..
