how strict is arizona eller in terms of work experience..like UNC do they discourage students with less than 2 years of work ex..Also their average age seems to be on the higher side with 28..

I am glad to see more interet in Arizona/Eller.

As I recall, they seek at least two years in a "professional capacity." They repeatedly stress that they are looking for candidates with "Professional experience demonstrating challenging assignments, career progression, carefully considered goals, and a strong work ethic."

Further, note that they have Business Field Project as part of the core in which students work together on a consulting project. This is often not a good sign for high potential/low experience students since schools might doubt the ability of HP/LE students carry their share of the weight in this type of setting.

Small teams of students work together to finalize scope, plan, and execute a project for an organization to deliver value to them. Teams work in consultation with a faculty member who is a relevant subject matter expert."

Of course, the best course of action is to contact Eller directly.

Hi Hjort.....i m a comp engg...from INdia...2005 passout.
I hv applied to eller for MS in MIS....can u plz evaluate my chances....
I hv already applied to them with my GRE scores and 2day i gv my GMAT.

Profile :-
B.E Comps- AVG 57 %
- Final year 65 %
TOEFL -290
GRE - 1340 (Q=770 , V=570)
GMAT - 680 (Q=48, V=35)
Work-ex - 5 mths.....will be 1 yr by Fall.
- designation- web designer

Projects- 1> WEB WIZARD done at GTL ltd in final year.
2> two s/w summer projects done in private companies.
3> few other projects as part of curriculum.

Extra- Curricular- Many but all in sports.(International level)
Recos - 1. from dept. HOD
2. from project guide
3. from employer.

I think my work ex shold not be a problem coz its not a pre requisite for MS in MIS and most pepl applyin r freshers. also i know my GMAt score isn't d best...but me think will do for MS in MIS.(not MBA).

Wot do u think are my chances??? eller is my dream school . one of the best places for MIS. U think i hv a good chance.
Other univs i hv applied r IUB Bloomington , Brigham Young univ, TAMU college staion.

PLz do reply. this is d only place where pepl know abt B-schools.

The only issue I see is the undergraduate performance, otherwise you seem like a strong candidate for Eller. Which programs do you apply to at IUB, BYU, and TAMU?

I m applyin to same program at all Univs ....MS in MIS .
IS there any chance they might make note of the fact dat i gv GMAt jus so dat i cld get into MS MIS. coz atleast 90% pepl i know are applyin to the same program but with GRE scores.(Though the univ website mentions dat they prefer GMAt over GRE). Others i know are applyin with GRE because they are applyin to MS in CS at other Univs. While my motive to take GMAT was because i was applyin to only MS MIS program. IS my GMAT score good enough to cover up for my mediocre acads ???

Also , i m not sure but most pepl who gv GMAt wld like to go for MBA, so i guess there wont be many competing for the Univs with their GMAT scores.....Is this true ??

Accordin me Eller is the place to go 4 MIS.....but hw wld u rank these Univs.....

---Univ of Arizona (Eller)
--- IUB (Kelley)
---TAMU(Mays)
---BYU(Marriot)...not yet applied
---Iowa state Univ...not yet applied

PLZ suggest any other Univs for my profile??

ALso since i hv not applied to BYU and IOWA state, while applyin to them shld i mention me GRE score (1340).?? or u think it might not create a good impression ??
Also shld i retake GMAT in JAn ...try to break 7XX barrier..will it make a big diff?

Thanx for prompts replies.....They are really encouraging

hi HJORT,
i got admit from Eller for MS-MIS. However, now i hv a good head-ache. I hv got 6 admits till now......

2. IUB (Kelley)....admit with 9500$aid 3. CMU......admit 4. TAMU (Mays)....admit 5. Univ of Cincinnati...admit with 6000$ aid
6. OSU (Spears)

Well , out of these i hv shortlisted Eller , CMU, Kelley.....i hv to decide between these 3.

Eller.....Ranked 1 for MIS...but i feel the corse is a bit too techy....i wanted more balance between business and techno courses. However, good placements but again more techy jobs like System Analyst.
I want to enter something like Management Consulting or Strategic Management.

CMU.....best placements but really expensive .....17500\$ per sem.
i really wanna go here but the cost is scaring me.

Kelley.....Good course but dont know much abt their placements or job profiles of their MS-IS graduates.

Plz help me out Hjort......help me decide. Do Give ur opinion.
