What are you looking to gain from grad school? It's hard to recommend you a good course of action without knowing what purpose school will serve for your career

Is MIM or MSC good people having 4 years of experience?
I have seen many universities accepting candidates who have WE not more than 2 year for MIM and MSC

Typically MiM programs have people with 0-2 years of work experience, whereas people with more work experience also apply to MS programs. So, you'd still fall in the range for an MS program.

However, your decision for MBA or MS should not be driven by deadlines but by your need to do a particular course. An MBA or an MS requires a big investment and it also has a longer-term impact. Starting the program this year versus next year is not going to make so much of a difference in your life. But the quality, curriculum and structure and the post-program job opportunities are far more important criteria that should be considered when deciding which route to take.

Yes, An MBA is a general business program. You can however concentrate/specialize in a subject.

If you are serious about either, you should check actual programs by visiting their websites

As you are an Indian applicant(so am I :-) ), I think its more difficult the get into a b-school in R3 and that too with a low GMAT score. Indians are the largest applicant pool and you have to have a competitive score to get into a good school unless you have a very distinct and extraordinary profile.

Also you are only 25 years old and very much fall within the average age group of any b-schools for next 2 years. So if you are planning to go for MBA, my suggestion is take your time to prepare for GMAT, achieve a higher score(around 700), and apply in R1 end of this year.

Hi ash2710,

The MBA is a huge investment and we strongly recommend that you apply in R1 (the following year). Quite frankly, a year here or there will not make a huge difference, considering you are only 25 right now. However, it is essential that you opt for a program that you are truly suited for. The MiM is for low experience candidates and some of the top-notch schools will not even prefer your candidature. Additionally, as an Indian, the expectations are going to be a lot higher for you and with only R3 deadlines remaining for most schools, the chances look bleak.

Take these few months to work on your GMAT and build your profile, and apply afresh in the next season. That truly will be your best chance :)

Should you need to discuss this in greater detail, please feel free to get in touch.

All the best!
