Need help!! :( GMAT Preps + Spring 2013 MBA Admission [#permalink] New post 23 Feb 2012, 17:01
Hello,

26 yo language professional
MA in Linguistics
6 yrs of US employment xp
currently residing in Russia


Im gonna take one of those KAPLAN iGMAT Preps in LA starting in late April (the prep itself lasts 12 weeks).
Consequently, I will only get my high GMAT score in late August (hopefully).

As there is a 5-months I20 status transfer allowance btw ed. programs for ppl like me who are on F-1, I intend to apply for several US b schools which offer full-time MBA programs that begin in January, 2013.

1) Which MBA schools would you recommend to apply for (US TOP 50, Spring, 2013)? Among those that I found are: Illinois SU, Eastern Kentucky University, University of Rochester, University of Texas at El Paso, Mills College. I would evidently prefer a b school that offers good chances of getting internships/placements/employment opportunities, as the money that I am going to pay is all the savings my family has.

2) What exactly is an Accelerated MBA and is it worth applying for (Rochester)?
3) Which of the schools offer better chances of receiving assistanships/fellowships?

4) Maybe it would be reasonable for me to apply for a less renowned school, e.g. Illinois State U in Sept., start earning my MBA in January 2013, and then transfer to a better b school (applying for an MBA in Nov, Dec, Jan, etc.)? Will I be able to receive a tuition refund for the credit hours that I will not attend due to the transfer? Any ideas?

Thank you in advance!! :)

I think it's because some of the questions can be answered by checking out the websites of the schools you're interested in.

As for the idea about transferring, most MBA programs do not allow you to transfer in from another school.

1) This forum is overwhelmingly skewed toward information about programs in the top 30, so few people will have knowledge of the schools you mention. And you shouldn't be looking to other people for where to apply, it is through self-discovery, research, and interaction with the school that helps you narrow down programs.

2) Accelerated MBA's are typically ones that are received in less than 2 years.

3) If you are a good student and able to solidly make a case for yourself, any school can give you a scholarship.

This is correct. Don't let this be your plan.
