Long time lurker, first time poster. I was accepted to Booth (no $), Tuck ($) and McCombs ($$$) and I am still trying to make a decision on the school I should attend next year. My post-MBA goal is to work in Houston, either in O&G IB (and boutiques) or in ( , Booz, ).
I am currently working in HYfor a 2nd tier bank in terms of reputation but 1st tier bank in terms of DCM league table (large European bank doing relatively well compared to peers).
I used to be strongly leaning towards McCombs because of the much lower price tag ($80k less debt is a lot of money) and the Texas location. Though I am afraid the Booth brand trumps McCombs' regional advantage for recruiting. Adding Booth on my resume could be nice, especially in the long term if I want to go back to my home country (in South America) or start a business. I also heard mixed things about being an international student at McCombs, especially for recruiting.
