Not that it matters. But I am a big NBA fan and draft is coming up. I felt this was like picking a 4 year college proven less athletic guy vs high school freak of nature. high yeild high risk vs low yeild low risk kind of thing.

Regional here. It was a way easier argument to make.

[quote removed]

more or less what i said.  might've picked national if we knew how much it would profit in proportion to the regional, or even an approximate estimate.  but since both profit, the risk of the national is substantial, and one of the goals was long-term stability-- had to go with the regional.

Yep, regional.  As someone with 9 years of marketing experience, it made the most sense.  I wish the essays are counted towards scores! Damn you LSAT! You got met this time!!! I'm getting you in September.  Muuuuhahahahaha!!!!

I felt like it was way too easy, the prompt completely set you up to do regional.

I would actually be interested in hearing someone's arguments for the national plan.

wouldn't be too hard.  just say the national had higher possible profits, and the regional plan had some disadvantages-- such as an increase in prices in the short term and facing competition from national chains.  you could make the argument that even with regional loyalty, large chains would overwhelm the market with lower prices and the fact that the regional plan had higher prices doesn't help.
