I want to take a Msc in Finance and have picked out 2 schools as of now. Princeton and Berkley. So I was wondering if anyone could link to previous posts regarding these schools, or provide some information in other schools that might be interesting or worth looking in. I'm an international student so I haven't really mapped out all of the possibilities that are out there in the US.
And I was looking over the cluster rankings, but I couldn't see Princeton anywhere. Where do they rank in all this? I had the impression that this was a good school?
So for the second part of my problem, hypothetically, if I got a GMAT of 700+, TOEFL 100+, but GPA is between 2.5 and 3.0 (wikipedia on GPA, but I can't post URLs yet (?!) ), does the GPA reduces chances to get admitted drastically?
(And also, I apologize if this post is in the wrong section.. I'm new here:P)
Thanks for help in advance.
Since you are aiming for top schools then a score above 700 is desirable. Also the GMAT alone won’t determine your chances of admission; your work experience plays a vital role as well. You need to ensure that academically you are in a good position. However it is not just the academics but beyond the academics that will help you in determining your candidature.
Although you might need to prove to the admission committee that your GPA won’t be an issue. If you can tell in your application about the skills that you gained at work and beyond in the areas you had scored low-you need to indicate a positive learning.
Make sure you follow the ‘show rather than tell’ principle so that the admissions committee could really understand your strengths and differentiating factors.”
