Vietnamese Student Profile evalution please [#permalink] New post 26 May 2010, 02:40
Hi all,
I'm a Vietnamese, 24 year old.

Qualifications: Bachelor of Business administration from tier No.1 university in my country
GPA: 8.3/10
GMAT score 620 (Q-48, V-27) AWA-4
TOEFL 100

2 years work experience with Vietcombank ( largest bank in my country)

I'd like to know how competitive my application is and my chances of getting into B-schools in USA.
Since My family is in financial trouble, do i have any chances of getting full scholarship? Pls list the suitable schools for me if possible.

Thanks a lot

titan6868,

The fact that you graduated from Vietnam's best university and now work for its largest bank will help you in the application process, but schools will also want to know how much leadership and impact you have had at work and outside of work. Your 620 score makes you competitive at U.S. schools like U. of Illinois, Babson, Northeastern, Pepperdine, Thunderbird, U. of Arizona, Pittsburgh (Katz), and several other schools. Some of these are decent programs. If you could raise your score you could aim for better schools. Read Accepted's advice for applicants with low GMAT scores.

The likelihood of receiving a scholarship will vary from school to school, but as a general rule, the higher your 'numbers' (GPA, GMAT) are relative to the target school's average numbers, the higher your chances of getting a scholarship. The following business schools give grants (as opposed to loans) to more than 90% of their MBA students: Saint Louis U., Texas Tech, U San Diego, Case Western Reserve, Clark Atlanta U, U Texas Dallas, Alfred U, Millsaps. But I don't know the size of the grants awarded.

Good luck,

That's a difficult question for me to answer. I recommend that you contact the schools, tell them what your qualifications/credentials are and ask them what kind of scholarships or grants they think you might qualify for. Based on your "numbers" I think it's very unlikely that NYU would offer you money or admit you. I also think U. Florida would be difficult for you to gain admission to. Michigan State and U. Alabama might offer you need-based money (if they admitted you); you are competitive at both. You are more than competitive at Portland so in that respect they may be more inclined to offer you money to get you to attend. Of the three schools where you are most competitive--Michigan State, Alabama, and Portland--Michigan St. is the most generous in terms of percentage of students receiving grants (63% do), followed by Alabama (55%), and Portland (43%).
