I want to attend a master's program in Finance in USA which will prepare me for successfully passing the CFA exams. I have found a few university programs which meets my requirements. But now I need your help to make a shortlist from these universities. To give you an idea about what might be suitable for me to apply, my GPA is 3.30 and GMAT Score is 580. So please name the five universities which I should apply for admission in coming Spring semester among the following universities:

1. Stony Brook University (MBA)
2. Florida International University (Ms. Finance with CFA track)
3. University of South Florida (Ms. Finance with CFA track)
4. University of Tampa (Ms. Finance with CFA track)
5. University of Texas at Dallas (Ms. Finance with CFA track)
6. University of Baltimore (Ms. Finance with CFA track)
7. Louisiana State University- Baton Rouge (Ms. Finance with CFA track)
8. Quinnipiac University ((MBA Finance with CFA track)
9. Pace University (Ms. Finance with CFA track)
10. Minnesota State University- Moorhead (Ms. Finance and Accounting with CFA track)

If anyone can suggest any other university which is suitable with my goal then please let me know about it.

Thanks

Hello there good sir...
Thanks for dropping by.
My first piece of advice to you is to retake your GMAT. You want to be applying with the best score you can possibly get. Secondly, it would be a bit difficult for me to evaluate your profile without more knowledge about your studies, your internships, your extra curricular activities, etc....

Have a look around at other profiles on our board and get back to me with more info, and I'll do my best to help you out!

I have over two year's experience in a local real estate company's finance department. And I worked as an intern in Citibank for 3 more months. I have a 4 year's BBA degree with finance concentration.

And I think if I retake the GMAT, i can get 620-650. But I do not have much time left before the admission deadline ends. So probably I will retake the exam in around 25th August. Do you really think I should retake the exam? If so then I will have to start preparing for it soon. :)

Of course you should retake the exam!!! Even if you have to wait one more year. If you can get a 650, you HAVE to go for it. Because it can make a HUGE difference, both in where you can get in, and in getting scholarships! And free money never hurt anyone!
