I am planning to apply for 4 schools - Rotman, UNC & 2 more (undecided). shooting for R2 deadlines for all schools with Rotman to go first.
I realize that my Gmat score is not good, but I feel the need to do a FT mba now because of a few factors - career at a stage where MBA will equip me & accelerate my move up, age (I feel i want I need a full time MBA to fully realize its potential and thus want to finish it before marriage), networking in North America to complement my Singapore networks to increase my professional options. FT because I feel the need to fully focus when assembling this last piece of my career platform jigsaw! I am looking for a consultant who can help me with the essay editing and most importantly guide me on the strengths of school programs I am suited to.
