Salut Alex,
Esti din Chisinau?

I would suggest you to acquire some work experience before applying to master programmes.
Also , consider starting the preparation for the GMAT and TOEFL right now.

As for TOEFL I may recommend you Terranova school (terranovamd.com).
There are no good GMAT prep companies in Chisinau, so don't waste your money.

You will find a lot of good study resources on the GMAT-CLUB.

Succese mari :)

Зачем Алексу какие-то школы для подготовки к экзаменам?
У него GPA=4.0, как я понимаю из 4.0, так что он и без них справится :)

Pkit, yup din Chisinau, doar ca la moment nu-s acolo. are u?

i'm now in US, on a one year university exchange program. (Financier - that's what explains the 4.0 GPA + being on the Dean's List :P, but actually it's still 9.2/10) coming back to Moldova this May.
as for work experience, I have some part-time experience with an itnl organization + lots of volunteering. And I just want to apply to the programs that require no work experience, or less than a year.
took TOEFL 2007, prepared only by myself and got 104, though the score's not valid anymore :)
so planning to go for a European masters in finance or management )

Все зависит от того чем ты хочешь заниматься после МБА. я бы выбрал ИНСЕАД.
Дискашены должны быть в другой ветке.

Всем привет!

My profile: Israel (born in Moscow)/M/23/3.2 GPA/770 GMAT/3 years in tech, trading.
I'm waiting to hear from Kenan-Flagler, Darden and Rotman, finishing up my app to Tepper.

A question to all those already stateside: In your impression, do CIS and Russian speaking people stick together in BS and beyond or would a Kazakh fell no special connection to an Israeli or a Moldovan?

I have already spent 2 years as a foreigner in a French engineering school and I there was some kind of self formed Russian-speaking club with no difference if you were from -stan countries, Ukraine or Russia. The difference is that the majority of other students were French, and not international as in BS. But I think that all Russian speakers will quickly find each other in every BS.

I studied in high school in New Jersey, and despite speaking English better than Russian at the time, I found myself hanging out with a guy from Tbilisi and another from Omsk.

I guess if a cute Russian speaking girl from CBS doesn't hang out with the CIS crowd, she's a KGB spy.

From my undergraduate experience, the Russian speaking students, from all CIS countries, usually stick together in the first weeks, but later on, they all blend with other internationals and locals.

Парни,

Я решил поделиться с будущими поколениями своим опытом.
Итак, в прошлом году я хорошо распланировал время чтобы заранее сдать оба теста и состряпать аппликейшены. Но с первой попытки я оба теста провалил и поняв, что качественно переподготовить оба теста я уже не успею, подумал: Джимат гораздо важнее Тойфола и за высокий Джимат мне могут простить низкий Тойфол, решив что я толковый кандидат и английский подтяну по ходу дела, а вот при рекордном Тойфоле низкий Джимат это как раз показатель того, что человек с крутым Английским не смог решить задачки Джимата, а значит он априори несообразительный и в школе такому не место. Поэтому я решил выжать максимум из GMAT, подзабив на TOEFL. В итоге я набрал 750 и 100. 750 – это достойно, а вот соточки по Тойфолу для приличных школ – очень мало, там обычно average 113.

И вот, имея на руках 750 и 100, я подался в несколько школ. Вчера меня приняли Chicago Booth, несмотря на то, что этой школе есть строгое требование для Тойфола – 104 и выше. По традиции, всем адмитам персонально звонят Адкомы, мне вчера тоже позвонил Адком, поздравил, и сказал что они уверены что я буду очень крутым аламни, что я перспективный студент и всё такое, но есть одно НО – у меня очень низкий Тойфл и я должен подтянуть speaking и listening, потому что у меня по ним всего лишь 23. Мне посоветовали взять интенсивные курсы по английскому, чтобы хорошо себя чувствовать при рекрутинге да и вообще во время учёбы. Так что моя гипотеза о GMAT&TOEFL подтвердилась на практике – меня заметили благодаря хорошему скору по Джимату и простили низкий Тойфл. Поэтому, если у кого-то ещё не сданы оба теста и есть short of time, то имеет смысл бросить все свои силы на GMAT – оно того стоит.

Vsem privet! Im Canadian (been here past 13 years) but originally from Minsk. Im going to Schulich this fall. Since many of you are from abroad; I got a question. How are Canadian schools viewed internationally? Are they labelled under the same umbrella as US schools, or are they viewed as something different? Also, how is the job market in CIS currently. I have to do a summer internship there (part of degree requirement) so thats why I ask!

Job market in Moscow looks great for expats. Awesome salaries, low wages and great social package u won't get in Europe or US. This is because most companies consider Russia to be dangerous for employees.
But the economics condition is getting worse and worse and you can't say the Russia is truly deserves a place in BRIC. It will be excluded soon.
But for an internship (2-3 months) it might be rather interesting.
