enquiry about suitability for Terry... Help me decide [#permalink] New post 16 Sep 2010, 21:21
Hi all,
My name is Samidh. and i need your suggestions and help very badly. i know u mite b gettin hundred such posts everyday but i can promise that my plea for help is a 100% genuine.
I am preparing for GMAT. i have a target of appearing around november this year. folks the problem is the only professional experience that i have is in wipro technologies, where im working from april this year. hence i will not b applying in any of the top b schools coz i know my chances of making it is minimal to say the least.
Guys, i have decided that i will apply to the TERRY COLLEGE of BUSINESS. The reason behind this are:
1) since the avg scores of students there is around 635, my guess is that if i can score around 700 ill b able to catch their attention despite having no professional experience.
2) they give scholarships to select students, without which i simply dont have the means to go and studey in the US.
and 3) my girlfriend is in georgia doing her PhD and i would like to be with her in this important phase of my life.


Guys, from the rumours i have heard i think it is very difficult to get into any college in US with scholarships and without having any experience. so i would like you to tell me if i have any realistic chance of making it to terry. let me tell you im a student odf average abilities, and last year i scored 89+ percentile in CAT. i also need to know that even if i am taken, will i get scholarships with which i can carry on my studies in Georgia. And lastly, how is the placement record in terry wrt percentage of students gettin placed from each batch.
i really need you to help me out friends. Thanking you in advance...

P.S.: my academic profile is :

class x : 89.2%
class xii : 83 %
GPA : 7.87 on a 10 point scale
Extra -curriculars achievements are minimal

Hi Samidh- You might try reposting this in the Admissions Consultants section of the website, where those who work in the admissions field can chime in on your chances of acceptance.

Regarding the financial inquiry- there are many sources of scholarships out there, so don't get discouraged at this stage! UGA is a good state school, but look around at the other options in the area if being close to your girlfriend is your top priority. If you think you might want to stay in the Atlanta area after graduation, there are lots of other programs in the city that might cost a little less yet still provide you with access to recruiters from the city's big name companies.

Good luck with your GMAT!

It's hard to forecast scholarships without an official GMAT score. However, we do know that for Fall 2009, Terry's GMAT 80% range is 580-710, so if you can score 710+ I think you could be a strong scholarship candidate.

The other thing to consider is a research assistantship (RA). USNews 2009 reports that Terry had 60 RA positions available and had a first-year full-time enrollment of 45. If exactly half of the 60 RA spots were open to first-years, it seems logical to conclude that 30 of 45 first-years were offered a RA position, which is an outstanding percentage. This may be a way for you to attend with less than a full scholarship.

Good luck!

My pleasure. Just to confirm what we think could be true, I would shoot an email to the admissions office. Ask them about the offer frequency of RAs and how much support they provide!

Oops, perhaps I wasn't clear! I meant that you should send them an email! Plus it will start the ball rolling on showing them how interested you are in the Terry program.
