GMAT score for Baruch, Binghamton, Albany... [#permalink] New post 04 Aug 2011, 07:09
I need advice from you guys here!

I hold a foreign degree (from S. Korea, spent most of my life in S.Korea and stayed 4 yrs in US for high school), business major, took 3 accounting courses, and passed AICPA exam (Maine state, as they only require you to have bachelor's degree), US permanent resident, doing internship at a small accounting firm located in NJ, as you see able to communicate in English with no problems except when someone speaks out 20 words in a second

for admission into MS Accounting programs at CUNY Baruch, SUNY Binghamton or Albany, or other good schools in NY or NJ that I have chances to shoot for Big 4 upon graduation, what are the range of GMAT score I need to get?? My undergrad GPA is 4.2/4.5 (about 3.7/4.0 in US scale, but I guess GMAT carries a lot more importance than GPA to me since I have a foreign degree)


Basically my question is, what is the median or average GMAT score for accepted applicants to those schools that I've mentioned?? Please let me know anyone who has this information. Thanks for answering in advance!

I'm thinking about applying for 2012 Fall or 2013 Fall, depending on my personal circumstances.

For the SUNYs, probably 600-620 should give you a fair shot. For the ranked Baruch, probably 640-ish. 650 should give you a fair shot at all programs.

In addition, if you are yrs out of undergrad, you should probably go for MBA Accounting in tier 2 schools where Big 4 recruits for accounting and advisory. Audit/Tax recruiting is heavily devoted to kids in 5 yr program.

I graduated from undergrad 1 yr ago (I'm 23 yrs old, so I'll be 26~27 at graduation from MSA)

Thanx for the info that you gave me! I gotta get my target score at 660!

I got into Baruch with a 650, 22 years old, no relevant work experience, and graudated with my Bachelor's early this year. If you can get a 640, I'd pretty sure you'll get in.

Hey, am I correct that binghamton is not aacsb accredited? specifically in accounting accreditation.

Where Albany and Baruch are?

Does this matter a lot? I was thinking of applying to albany in the near future but saw that binghamton has a better placement rate?

I was told by the Admissions office that they rarely admit students right out of undergrad.

M GMAT score was 660, GPA 3.53, Accounting GPA 3.81, with a couple internships. Do you think I might have a decent shot even without full-time experience?

You probably received incorrect information. For MS Accounting programs, significant majority of the students have zero work experience. They created the MS Accounting degree to satisfy 150hr credit requirement for getting the CPA designation. Any school with MS Accounting program in addition to BS or BBA in Accounting program have to admit their own undergraduate students into their MS program. Therefore, you don't have to worry about work experience as long as you are applying to the MS program (not the MBA program)

That's exactly what I said to the admissions representative that I was emailing. He said that they do encourage most applicants to have full-time work experience, although some excellent students are admitted without work experience. Seems strange to me...
