Application process [#permalink] New post 17 Feb 2013, 10:09
Hi,

I'm going to start several application procedures this week to different Universities and MSc Programs. My focus is in the UK and Spain being that some of the Universities I'm pursuing are Imperial College, Manchester Business School, IE, Edinburgh BS and some more.

I am a Humanities Undergraduate so there is no Business background. As far as I can understand from the information provided by different Universities, that is not an issue. I'm looking for a conversion course and I do believe that the UK is the right place.

My concerns are related to my degree average. I a semester left and hope to finish with an average 16 (out of 20) but currently, with a semester left, I am not in that level yet. Is that a big deal? Should I point out that I expect to improve my average in the last semester?

Also, is there any information on how the admission process work? Are the Universities above some that would be considered hard to get in? What about alternatives to the FT ranking?

Thanks

This is not a straight forward question. Consider average work experience, GMAT score and GPA at the schools you are looking at. How do you fit in? Have you looked at business week rankings?

It is hard to be straight forward about this! But I've never seen business week rankings, I will surely take a look.

You may want to find stats as to how many applicants usually get in this or that college on average (based on the admission results of the previous years). For example, in the following article I’ve found the stats for the 2013 http://studyboom.net/wiki/College_application_process. It helped me a lot when I was looking for some low risk options to consider.
