Universities to apply?? [#permalink] New post 22 Dec 2005, 05:59
Hi Linda,
Please go through my profile and do let me know which universities i can target in the US

Age : 26
GMAt : 640 ( 44 Q, 33 V)

I currently have 3.5 yrs work experience - 3 years at AOL, in the call center industry. I was a team leader for the last year and a half. I turned entrepreneur in Jan of 05 and joined my company full time (a placement consultancy firm) in August. My performance in my Engineering (telecommunications) is not that great. (got 63%).

Would like to take up finance, so that i can switch industry . ROI and cost are important criteria for me. Do suggest the stretch and safe schools

Thanks :)

Look in to Rochester, Indiana, UT Austin, and Georgetown. You have a competitive profiel for the first two. Georgetown and UT are slight stretches.

Good luck!

During my initial search, i had shortlisted Unc Chapel hill and texas A& M as a stretch, Wake forest and Vanderbilt as safe..

UNC is a good option, although your GMAT might give you trouble there. I don't know how strong Texas A&M, Wake Forest, or Vanderbilt are in finance so I really can't comment on them.

Good luck!

I would suggest Maryland too - its got a way better ROI than Georgetown and its ranked similar to Georgetown across the rankings..
Vanderbilt has a really good reputation for Finance although it has been dropping in general rankings recently.
