I am currently enrolled in a private school in ontario. I am in grade 12, and have a very good chance of being accepted into Harvard or Wharton, because of my connections (through private school), 4.00 GPA, IB (International Baccalaureate), and 2300 SAT, and great EC's.
I don't want to go through my application, but I had trouble on a decision I have to make soon.
Lets say I got accepted into both Harvard, Wharton, and Richard Ivey.
My parents paid $40k/year for my high school education, and they will for my younger brother too (who is in grade 6).
They are going to have trouble paying off the $60k/year for my university and $40k/year for my brother, since their business is going down anyway, but they'll do it (and go into debt) if I wanted to go to H or W.
Which would be a better choice for both short and long term in terms of pay, finding a job, positions available, and MBA opportunities.
- Go to Harvard or Wharton, go into debt, in the six digits.
- Go to Richard Ivey, no debt.
Which would be a better choice? I don't know if its worth it to be paid a little more if I chose harvard or wharton, vs going into huge debt.
P.S. I will definitely aim for a Harvard or Wharton MBA, and those are what really matter, I know.
OH and i will be aiming to work in the USA. Preferable the L.A. or NYC
I would be willing to doing my analyst years in Toronto.
After my MBA, I want to enter Private Equity in NYC or LA or SF. Nowhere else.
