Hi,
I am a media student from India. I Understand that your University has Media Courses for Masters. I would love to know more. Also, I have
heard that to get into post graduate courses in the USA you have to complete sixteen years of education before you can take admission. Is it true? Where can i contact the concerned person to clear these doubts and understand the details? These are questions i need answers to. Thank for helping out. Really appreciated. :)

Hi there,
Thank you for your interest in the Rutgers Business School. Which Master's are you interested in? And what kind of media courses are you interested in as well?

We do require a 4 year degree from India - it must be equivalent to a United States bachelor's degree. You can contact me for more details at skolodiy@business.rutgers.edu

I graduated from NYU's college of arts and sciences with a 2.6 and recently scored a 650 on the GMAT. I also have 5 years work experience as a Financial Analyst. Is there anything, besides scoring better on the GMAT, that I can do to offset my low undergrad GPA?

Hi JLD299,
Unfortunately there is not much you can do about your undergraduate GPA at this point. My advice to you is to make all other parts of your application as strong as possible. Meaning your GMAT score, your work experience, your letters of recommendation, etc... Are you looking to apply for the full-time or part-time program? This can make a big difference as well.

My final recommendation is to provide a personal statement addressing your lower undegraduate GPA. Sometimes we ask students for this, but it looks even better when the student supplies it right off the bat. Additionally, make yourself available to come in for a personal interview so that we can get to know you better (you can state this in the personal statement). Although if you are applying for the full-time program, an interview is required anyway.

I hope that helps. If you have any other questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out to me directly at: skolodiy@business.rutgers.edu

Re: Ask Rutgers Business School [#permalink] New post 13 Sep 2012, 14:24
Hello,

I am currently a NJ resident attending an online business school (Jones International University) while working to help pay for it. I am currently earning a 4.0 GPA making Dean's List after the first semester. I am also currently studying for my GMAT, scoring 700+ on every practice exam I have taken so far.

My question is about the degree I am earning. I know that online programs are viewed as, well, less than impressive. Even having a 4.0 GPA, is this still frowned upon for admissions? Will it negatively affect my chances of being accepted?

Thank you for your time.

Best regards,

Steve Hunter

Hi Ajay,
Thank you for your interest in Rutgers Business School. Our average years of full-time work experience in the traditional MBA program is 4.5 years. However, this is an average and we do have students who come into the program with 2 years of full-time work experience. 2 years is the absolute minimum. So if you have 2 years when you apply, it is ok. However, you would be a stronger candidate if you had 3-4 years of experience.

I hope that answers your questions. If not, please let me know.

Hi Stephan,

I've completed my Rutgers application in January. However I received an email saying the application is incomplete due to education evaluation requirement.
Will my application be pending for review until I submit the education evaluation?

Thanks!

@RutgersMBA

Hi Mr. Kolodiy

I am planning to apply for the full-time MBA program (Fall 2014). I have few queries, hope you can help me out.

(1) I currently run a Design service firm and I intend to get one of the recommendation letter from our client, is that fine with the school?

(2) Is there any specification on the type of font family & size that has to be used for essay, I use Arial Narrow (12 pt), double spaced.

(3) I was previously in US in business visa & later in work visa. My work visa has expired and I still hold my B1 visa. Will the above history of visa's will cause a problem when applying for F1 visa.

(4) Will there be any consideration with the final tuition fee amount. I have a GPA of 3.42 (according to World Education Services{WES}) and work experience of 10 years and I am yet to write my GMAT & TOEFL. My industry of experience are Information technology, Medical and construction.

(5) Do I need to get my transcripts evaluated by WES.

(6) Does the school provide any TA opportunities or any other financial assistance for international students. Is there any scholarships that targets (helping) the students from developing countries/Asia.

Thanks,

K.

Hi Stephan,

I am Indian and interested in applying to the Rutgers MBA program for fall 2015. I have worked in International Business - Pharmaceuticals for last three years and that said, the Rutger's MBA in Pharmaceutical Management captures my interest.

My question is - Does Rutger's provide merit based scholarships/funding to International Students?

Thank you kindly,
Gauri
