profile evaluation for a Russian MBA applicant [#permalink] New post 19 Mar 2011, 16:56
Hello, everyone! :-D
I would really appreciate any advice, thought or suggestion regarding my profile. I aim to get into am MBA program with a major in marketing within NYC area. My geographic options are: Columbia, NYU, Baruch, and Fordham.
I am a 22-year old female. Originally from Central Asia, I grew up in Russia. I completed on a full-time basis a degree in English and Social Sciences at a local school and on a part-time basis a degree in Government and Municipality Management at one of Moscow universities. I graduated from both of the schools with honors and received a number of scholarships.
My work experience is diverse. I worked as a teacher of English in Russia and as a camp counselor in the USA with advanced and special needs students for 3 years. My marketing experience is almost 3 years also. I joined a local advertising agency while I was a student and worked as a promotions projects manager for almost 3 years.
My extracurricular involvement includes: coordinating events in college, volunteering at hospitals and orphanages, and a 10-year-old commitment to folklore dancing and ballet.
Currently I reside in New York. Given that I am an international student, my employment opportunities in the US are limited. I worked as a manager and bartender in a restaurant.
I took GMAT, and my score is just 600 :oops: while my practice tests scores varied from 640 to 690.Any thoughts on that?
Thank you in advance for your help!

i'd say retake the GMAT. That way Columbia and NYU can become viable options. With 600 you are at the Baruch level I believe.

Udachi!

You would probably need a better GMAT for Columbia or NYU, not sure about the other two. Was is it your first attempt, and how confident are you about improving your score in the next attempt, given that your scores on practice tests were higher?

Yes, it was my first attempt. I am not sure about improving my verbal score significantly, but working on quant seems possible.

That what I might do. Thank you! But is there a big difference between an MBA from NYU Stern and Baruch? I mean career opportunities after graduation.

Absolutely. Stern is Top 10 MBA program. Baruch is nowhere near. The only possible exception would be if you choose non-traditional career path, but even then I don't see Baruch getting ahead of Stern.

I agree with the above post. I am not familiar with Baruch but I do know that it is nowhere in the top-25...then again, it depends on what you want from your mba and what your post-mba goals are...

I don't think I want to choose a non-traditional path. My goal is to receive a degree that will enable me to get a job and will be recognized even outside of the US

So, if I raise my score to 700, will I have any chance to get into NYU?

Generally speaking - Yes. Of course, there is more to it than just a GMAT score. Still, 700 makes you competitive.
