Dear Sir/Madam,
I'd appreciate it if you would acquaint me with the universities in US as per the details mentioned in my profile as follows:

10th grade-80.40%-SSC
12th grade-58%-HSC
Graduation in bachelor of computer Science -B.C.S-68.5%-Pune University

Thus i have completed 15years of education and for the 16th year of my education i am currently pursuing a 1 year post graduate diploma in Finance from Symbiosis International University.It is basically a weekend course however in the final degree it will not be mentioned as a part time course. However i would like to know if this course will be beneficial in fulfilling the requirement of a 15+ 1 year education.simultaneously i am also pursuing a post graduate diploma in banking and finance awarded by the university of Pune.

Considering my profile i'd appreciate it if you could provide me with the best colleges in the Us pertaining to an MBA degree in Finance / marketing/Entrepreneurship/MS courses in Marketing,Investement Management,Entrepreneurship or Corporate Finance.
i would also like to inform you that i do not have any work experience, but i can make arrangements for providing a part time work experience certificate of 3 years.
i would also acknowledge if you could send me additional information with regards to other courses i could take up in order to enable me harness my potential towards entrepreneurship
I gave my GMAT on 21st of November.Unfortunately, I got a score of 600/800.Maths 82% Verbal 35%.AWA scores are yet to come.I would like to know how good are the state universities in the US. For example State University of Ohio,California,Arizona etc.Also suggest me some good MBA Finance colleges in the US wherein I would be eligible.Also, as I mentioned before I have completed 15 years of my education and currently pursuing a post-graduate diploma in finance awarded by Symbiosis International University and Post Graduate Diploma in Banking and Finance awarded by Pune University.I have hereby attached the course curriculum.So I would also like to know if these courses or one of these courses would be considered as my 16th year of education wherever necessary.Also, I have started my own business. I have started a firm in partnership.We provide financial consultancy wherein we deal with equity,mutual funds,commodities,NSDL services,Tax Consultancy,Real Estate Broking.In addition to this we also provide graphics,corporate branding, and IT solutions.We are also looking forward to start project funding.I would also like to know if I can show this as my one year experience.And how much good will this be if I mention it in my CV or SOP's.Hence,considering the above criteria kindly suggest me some good colleges and guide me through the process of admissions.
Also, I am planning to apply to UCI Paul Merage SOB,USC Marshall SOB,Ohio state University,Carnegie Mellon Tepper SOB,University of Texas at Austin(McCombs),University Of California Davis SOB.Can I get into any of these schools considering my above mentioned profile?How about going for a MS Finance program in investment mgmt or corporate finance and later doing an MBA.Please help me out as i am very confused about everything and deadlines are coming very near.
Thanking you in anticipation,
Regards,
Tushar Nangnure

Yeah, it says Feb 10, 2010. I think it's just something they missed when they recycled the text from the previous year. Anyway, I assumed that the deadline is Feb 10, 2011. Hope I am right.

I see mine says Feb 17, but I am concerned since I might not hear back from my R2 s by that date.

I visited UC Irvine during the fall, and had a fantastic visit. The class I sat in on was about the professors' experience coaching an executive through a period of restructuring, and the quality of the lecture was good. Students were friendly and seemed pretty on the ball as well. Campus was very nice, although I felt there were some tacky street names (Harvard, Berkeley, and Stanford street)! The campus was full of energy with lots of undergrads. Weather is great in OC, of course. Lots of strong companies in the area. Would definitely recommend Merage to others.

Hope for the best, jiyo. My application is still incomplete because of the transcript. If you don't mind, could you please share your interview experience? Who interviewed you? What questions did he/she ask you? Thanks

When I got the interview invite email, I could choose the date and interviewer online. My interviewer was the Associate Director. They set up a meeting with the student on the interview day.

On my application, I said I wanted to change my career path by earning an MBA degree so she asked me a lot of questions about my goal. What kind of role do you want to do after the program? How does your current work affect your goal?
Another was if there was any current campaign going on that interests me (I said my new interest was marketing field)
I also had to explain how I got my past experience jobs and how the jobs were like.

My profile: 3.0 at big public undergrad, 710, 2 yrs WE in accounting

hope this helps...

Thanks jiyo7, that definitely helps. I am also interested in marketing.
Your statistics seem better than mine. Good luck to both of us!
