thanks for your reply rf.
Realistically I am not the most competitive candidate for a top 7 school. Im hoping to get in to a top 20 school. Do you think that I will still have access to top jobs in the north east from a "transelite" school?
Short term I would like to be anywhere in the north east and stay in the U.S. so that I can pay off the immense costs associated with completing an mba and gain the best experience possible.
Long term Im flexible to wherever would afford me the best opportunities. Im too young to know where I want to be for the rest of my life and have no qualms about returning to Canada or staying in the U.S.
Thanks again for your input,
A few points to consider:
- It really depends on where you want to end up. A top MBA from a Canadian school will get you access to the best jobs in Canada. The same MBA won't get you very far in the US. An MBA from a top US school will get access to the best jobs in both countries.
- The whole immigration thing is a big factor right now. Non-US citizens who don't have green cards have much more limited job opportunities.
