Any Chance for Admission? [#permalink] New post 29 Jul 2011, 09:00
Hi everyone,

I only recently decided to pursue graduate school, because I had never considered it a possibility for me. I am looking to apply to the following MSF programs:

University of Illinois at Urbana-Champagne
Vanderbilt University
University of Texas at Dallas
Tulane University

My qualifications are below.

Undergrad - 6 years to graduate with a 3.05/4.0 GPA (Arizona State Uni., Bachelors in Business Economics)
[EDIT] - I should mention that I never put much emphasis on my undergrad. That is why it took me 2 extra years and a low GPA. Then once I got out, and started looking for a job, reality smacked me across the face. Now I am getting my ass in gear of what I need to do to be successful in my career and life.
Work Exp - 2 years as a student worker in IT support, 1 year internship in IT support, a 7 month internship with Disney (only did customer service and stocking), and finally a 3 month internship for a REALTOR (which turned into a full time job after graduating), Currently 12 months of post-grad work.
GMAT - Goal of 700+

I am just wondering what my chances are for admission at the stated schools with my background and my goal GMAT score. Basically if I am completely wasting my time I would like to know.

Curious why UT Dallas was listed? Not knocking the school, just that it is lesser known than the other two.

I am actually trying to focus on Real Estate Finance. Each program I have listed has at least 1 course in Real Estate Investments, and has a Real Estate student organization, and a Finance club. UT at Dallas is reputable in Texas (probably no where else), and there are quite a few real estate and finance institutions in the area. It is more or less the backup to the other 3, but it actually has more courses in Real Estate than any of the other MSF programs.

University of Texas is a pretty decent school man. Big leagues aren't for everyone :)
