I want help in deciding the roadmap to getting into the school of my choice.
I am from India and have taken GMAT already (score posted) and have the TOEFEL scheduled in mid-October.
Can someone recommend me some book which helps me in deciding the steps to follow from here on.
I have shortlisted the courses i want to attend.
One is Financial Engineering and another one is a MBA (with a possibility of dual specialization). I have more or less shortlisted the MBA schools - about 10 (Most ranked between 5 to 20) and would be finally applying to about 6-8 schools.
I have not yet shortlisted the Financial Engineering schools but Berkley and Cornell seem to be the ones where I will apply for sure. I would apply to about 5 schools here.
Now - I am collecting the deadlines for all these institutes.
I have asked my university to send me the transcripts. Also I have contacted an institute and they would convert my percentage scored every year into a GPA.
Now - what next? Is it ethical to write a format of a reco and tell the person who is going to give me a reco that I need something according to "this" format?
Finally - about the essays - Can i get the list of essays of each of the schools i am going to apply right away or is it that I get the essays only after I get the application form - most schools seem to charge abt a $100 for the same.
And what is the most economical way of getting the essays (and reco formats) edited..again the million dollar question - is it helpful to get the essays edited?
Too many questions....Hope this forum helps me out as it has done - at every step so far.
To be or not to be....
