Had to be a world class 1 year general management program. That alone narrowed my choice to just 2 schools
Let me guess: Cornell and Emory?
My experience was that:ranking, news, websites, gmatclub
, speak to representatives, send some emails and visit to see if they are really responsive and nice (the best in this was Indiana University, the worst was George Washington, so that I dropped that school out immediately even though there were a scholarship for vietnamese in that school. People there were very absolutely arrogant and unfriendly, and I obviously didn't want to spend 2 years there)
The visit may be the best experiences. Through the visit, I regconized how great were Emory, Notre Dame, Indiana, Purude etc, that you may not know just by reading view book.
