Hi all,
My name is Samidh. and i need your suggestions and help very badly. i know u mite b gettin hundred such posts everyday but i can promise that my plea for help is a 100% genuine.
I am preparing for GMAT. i have a target of appearing around november this year. folks the problem is the only professional experience that i have is in wipro technologies, where im working from april this year. hence i will not b applying in any of the top b schools coz i know my chances of making it is minimal to say the least.
Guys, i have decided that i will apply to the TERRY COLLEGE of BUSINESS. The reason behind this are:
1) since the avg scores of students there is around 635, my guess is that if i can score around 700 ill b able to catch their attention despite having no professional experience.
2) they give scholarships to select students, without which i simply dont have the means to go and studey in the US.
and 3) my girlfriend is in georgia doing her PhD and i would like to be with her in this important phase of my life.


Guys, from the rumours i have heard i think it is very difficult to get into any college in US with scholarships and without having any experience. so i would like you to tell me if i have any realistic chance of making it to terry. let me tell you im a student odf average abilities, and last year i scored 89+ percentile in CAT. i also need to know that even if i am taken, will i get scholarships with which i can carry on my studies in Georgia. And lastly, how is the placement record in terry wrt percentage of students gettin placed from each batch.
i really need you to help me out friends. Thanking you in advance...

P.S.: my academic profile is :

class x : 89.2%
class xii : 83 %
GPA : 7.87 on a 10 point scale
Extra -curriculars achievements are minimal

Even though Terry is not a top 10 program, it still requires a minimum of 2 years full time work experience. There may be some scholarships available but it is very rare to get a full ride in this economy. As far as placement goes, you will find that most graduates find job placements in the Southeastern U.S. since Terry is viewed as a regional school. Additionally, most placments are in consulting and finance. You can get more details by looking at the MBA class profile info.

@ above...Thanks a lot. Suppose i do get accepted by Terry School of Business, do you think i should take the offer up? I mean is will the ROI be worth it? I am asking this as you mentioned that it is not considered to be within the top 10 programs

Your decision to go to Terry should be based upon your career goals as well as the program offerings. If you get an MBA from Terry, you will most likely end up working in the Southeastern US initially. However, that does not mean that you cannot find a job elsewhere once you establish yourself professionally. Just keep in mind that the alumni network will not be as global as that of a top 10 program. You should also take a good look at Terry's strengths and compare them with what you would like to get out of an MBA to see if they sync up.
