Thank you for using the timer!
We noticed you are actually not timing your practice. Click the START button first next time you use the timer.
There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:
Has anyone else been accepted to Florida? I'm interested to see if anyone has interviewed and been accepted. I got my acceptance not too long ago, and I am definitely thinking about attending in the Fall. I'd just like to discuss the school, the curriculum, and the job opportunities associated with the school.
Also, how long does it take for the acceptance package to arrive? I've been waiting about 2 weeks for it.
Kellogg Class of 2010...still active and willing to help. However, I do not do profile reviews, don't offer predictions on chances and am far to busy to review essays, so save the energy of writing me a PM seeking help for these. If I don't respond to a PM that is not one of the previously mentioned trash can destined messages, please don't take it personally I get so many messages I have a hard to responding to most. The more interesting, compelling, or humorous you message the more likely I am to respond. GMAT Club Premium Membership - big benefits and savings
Congrats jbguy. I am a Floridian, and I have a few friends who recently went through the UF MBA program. As far as Florida MBA programs, it is the best by far. You will get the best opportunities in and around Florida, but the recruiting outside of the Florida and Southeast region is scarce. So, it really comes down to your desire to stay in Florida. If you want to end up in NY, it might be tough. But, if you are ok with solid opportunities in South Florida, Jacksonville, and all of the major areas in FL then you will be in good shape. One buddy of mine got a great job in Commercial Banking at BofA in South Florida. I think his story represents the respected reputation of UF in Florida. Considering the FL economy is in another level of disarray due to the housing market and inflation, the opportunities might change, but if that is the case, an MBA program is where I would want to be.
It's too bad you missed the 2006 & 2007 Championships, the Gators are on the bubble big time for the NCAA Tourney.
Riverripper and DJHouse, thanks for the replies! Glad to hear some good things about Florida's MBA and know there are some people on here that are knowledgeable about the program.
I'm not really interested in living in the Northeast or Midwest, so that's not much of a concern for me. I grew up along the Gulf Coast, and I am mostly interested in staying in the Southeast - so Jacksonville, Atlanta, Birmingham, Nashville, and Charlotte are more than fine with me. Based on everything I have researched, Florida's MBA is one of the best in the region, just a bit below UNC, Emory, and Vanderbilt. I am trying to get a better idea of which companies recruit there, what cities have a decent number of UF MBA graduates, and so forth.
I'd also like to hear some opinions from students that will be starting in the Fall or are already there. I suppose I'll need to PM hvcruiser.
Sounds good, jb. Enjoy the warm weather while I'm bundled up NYC. I don't know what your score is, but, from what I hear, UF is pretty generous with scholarship $$$ if you have a high GMAT score. Their average is 670, which is not bad, and scholarships help prop it up.
