Hello,

I wanted to get some information regarding the chances of getting in Full time MBA in Information systems.

Background: Indian
Education:
Bachelors in Engineering and i got my GPA evaluated by WES and as per US standards its stands at 3.26
Extra curricular: Active member of Green peace India.

Post graduation
To work in NY .I don't want to move out

GMAT: 580 (And I don't think i will be retaking the exam :()
TOEFL: 104 out of 120

Work exp: I have a professional IT ( with an MNC ) work experience of 3 years and also have done a summer Internship for almost 8 months with a production company.

Colleges:
My selections as per the college rankings.

Suny stony brook.
Fordham
Hofstra
PACE
NJIT

I am planning to apply for Spring 2012. I had a talk with Stony brook and they informed me to start the application as soon as possible. But again the problem is I am not sure how good is their MIS program.

For Fordham my score is way below their average score 600 so i dont know how is my chances of getting in.
Out of all the above listed colleges I could think of Fordham as the best as a college. But i am not sure of how good is MBA program for MIS in Fordham. I couldn't find much of details from their site. If somebody could help me with that I would be really grateful.

Thanks

Hi frewels,

What I recommend is that you take the time to identify your career goals post-graduation, and then to contact alumni and the career centers at each school to see if the programs align you with your goals.

As an example, if there is a particular company you would be interested in working for post-graduation, talk to the career centers at each school to see if the company recruits students. Career centers are very open with this information.

You will get the most out of your business school experience, and your application will be strongest, if you identify what you are looking for and how you can contribute and benefit from an MBA program.

Hope this was of help.

Cheers,

Conrad and the Stacy Blackman Team
