Thankyou so much for your time and for sharing useful insight about networking opportunities after graduation. I will be really grateful to you if you can tell me more about the following -
1. Brandeis/ Bentley are private institutions , so are they well respected around the world ?
2. With my profile , what are my chances of getting entrance scholarship ( good chance , no chance or thin chance ?
) ? ( Approximate range ? )
3. Also , please suggest some schools in canada for my profile.
Thanks in advance.
Brandeis and Bentley are not world renowned. The two universities mostly place their students within the greater Boston area for the MSF at least. There are numerous private colleges and universities in the US, so obviously not every single one is world renowned. That is not to say Brandeis and Bentley aren't good schools, in Massachusetts they have a good reputation.
I have researched both schools so I do know some entrance statistics. For Bentley with the class entering this year the average GMAT - 620, GPA - 3.4, and minimum TOEFL is 100. Bentley also admits people without work experience. Brandeis has the GMAT score range between 580 to 680. However with Brandeis I do think the school is looking for people to have work experience, but probably able to get around that. I have no idea about potential scholarships however.
The average starting salary for people without experience coming out of the program at Bentley is about $48,500. I emailed a couple people at Brandeis, but didn't get any kind of response.
Best of luck with the applications. If you have not already I highly recommend looking at MSFHQ's site, that is where I learned a lot about the MSF. Reading threads in this sub forum here has been a huge help as well.
