preparing to apply this fall and need suggestions [#permalink] New post 02 May 2012, 23:18
Hi all,

I'm an international student and I'm going to apply for some MSA/MAcc programs this coming school year.

My GMAT is 710+6.0. I have two years' study in China with GPA of near 3.8 and two years' study in Canada with first year GPA of almost 4.0. I'm going to take TOEFL this July, but since I have one year's experience in Canada, I do not worry too much about it. My only consideration is my accounting related experience. My major is economics, and I have a minor in accounting in Canada. also, I only have an internship in a local accounting firm.

That's almost all about my background. How would you consider my chance of getting into one decent program? My dream schools are schools like BC in Boston (I love the location), and USC(because I have relatives there, and, off course, they miss my...)

Could you also give me some ideas on writing good essays showing my experience? What are they looking for and what could be my shining points that catch their eyes?

Appreciate any suggestions from you!

Does anyone have any ideas or suggestions about which programs do not put much emphasis on internship experience? Is there collections of application essays in this forum? I just wanna read more and have some ideas what good essays should be...

Greetings!

I am applying to schools this fall as well. I plan on applying to Texas A&M, UT-Austin, USC, Illinois and Vanderbilt. I visited Vanderbilt and really liked their program. I tried to get in late for this Fall but didn't really have the right amount of time needed to make it there.

You should definitely look into Illinois as I hear they do a great job with International Students getting their Masters of Accounting.

Good luck!

Your stats are more or less like mine. I applied to five schools and got denied from Michigan only (Ross). I got accepted to USC, UT Austin, UIUC, and Pitt. So, I'd be pretty confident about getting into very good schools. I'd say BC would be pretty easy to get into looking at your stats. You have a very good shot at USC as well.

For the essays, just let them know what your future plans are and how you're planning to achieve them. Don't share your stats in the essay, they already know all of this. My essay focused on what my goals are and where I see myself in the next 5 - 10 years.

Also, I'm attending USC. So, if you have any specific questions about the program, I'd be glad to help you out. I'll be more familiar with the program in the upcoming months.

Good luck! Wish you all the best =)


That's great! First congratulations to you! Thanks for you hint of essays. I wonder whether I can PM you for further info?
Wish you good luck in your future study
