And the winner is...

Decision time has come for grad school. Before announcing the winners, let’s first do a recap of the contestants and why we applied to each:

University of Texas:
  • Ranked in the Top 20 MBA Schools by US News
  • Excellent Alumni Network
  • Close to two-fifths of the Markham Family
  • Most graduates stay in the west/Mid-West Area (where we want to live)
  • More job offers for Supply Chain students than there are Supply Chain students

Brigham Young University:

  • Ranked in the Top 50 MBA Schools by US News
  • Very low tuition rates
  • Close to the Boyer Family
  • Close to my parents
  • Most graduates stay in the west/Mid-West Area

Penn State:

  • I like their football team

So where are we going? C’mon – it should be obvious. My Dad didn’t raise a fool.

WE ARE – PENN STATE
WE ARE – PENN STATE
WE ARE – PENN STATE

Seriously, that’s where we’re going. Penn State.
