Thanks bro. I will make my decision by end of Jan or mid of Feb.


I'll not be joining. Location disadvantage means job search is that much more difficult.+ the placement records are not great for intl students.. I'll try to get a better GMAT score and apply to other colleges next year. Best of luck .

That makes sense, it's definitely more difficult for international students but not impossible.

Nice score man. So mason must be a safe school for you. I think you will get in with Full scholarship. Best of luck.
Any tips for a 600 Gmat guy?


Hey sorry for the delayed reply. Got busy with work and then the interview. No Mason is definitely not a safe school, I am applying because I like the opportunities that I can get there. Additionally, I feel that the GMAT score is no more the most important criteria for admission. Its your overall profile which really counts. As for your situation, I see that you are planning to give the GMAT again. All the best with that, but I feel you should seriously consider Mason given that you are already selected.


Well I agree with you that Mason is a great school. But as an International applicant, I heard that jobs arent that great in Virginia.
However, states like NY and NJ have a lot of jobs and hence a better scenario. Masons average salary is $77k which is fine for me.
And placement rate is 77%. But its really costly for out of state guys. $120k for 2 years is a bit of concern. whats your take?


As a random aside - there are a ton of jobs in the northern VA/DC area. I moved here 2 years ago as part of an expansion effort. Federal spending fuels a TON of defense and IT contracting work in addition to real estate. Traditional finance is smaller here but it exists; there are a few large asset management, PE and IB shops (Houlihan, Carlyle), the expected PWM footprint and plenty of financial services. Consulting has a large presence, dominated by federal services (Deloitte and Booz have gigantic offices here); less so for strategy but it exists. A few large companies are headquartered here (Mars, General Dynamics, and others). Plus there are a ton of great federal jobs that open up with an advanced degree; either regulatory or finance related. I met a guy who graduated from Booth and went to work for the Treasury investing TARP funds (yes, they still exist), it is essentially private equity investing in the public sector. The Fed is also always hiring.

Hi ,
I recently got an admit from W&M along with a decent scholarship. My other option is NC State University. I am still trying to make up mind over which one to choose. It would be great if someone could share more information on employment opportunities and also please share the alumni contacts if you can.

Thanks,
ritika

Thanks a lot! I have been working Accenture as a software engineering analyst for 3+years. My GMAT score is 630. I plan to pursue a career in marketing post MBA. As far as industry is concerned, I would love to explore consumer products or will probably just stick to IT (marketing and sales).

I haven't received any scholarship decision from NC State yet. They will let me know by march. I want to know more about the two schools, compare and then make a decision. Please let me know if you guys have any information.

Thanks!
