First of all, I also plan to apply for a Master in Information Systems. I will graduate in June/July 2011 in Management Information Systems and would like to continue in this field.
Btw, give my regards to Michigan, I attended the Lawrence Technological University in Southfield, MI for a semester abroad, which was pretty cool.
Unfortunately I can not give any satisfying answer to your questions, but maybe you can answer mine:
Is there any University Ranking on the web regarding MIS studies?
Thanks for reading =)
