Hello All,

i am a recent graduate from a 3 year bachelors degree program from Kerala, India. recently moved to Texas, USA. As most of you all know 3 year degree are not equivalent to US undergraduate degree unless they meet some requirement. I have Bachelor of Commerce from Mahatma Gandhi University. This university has NAAC accreditation of grade 'B'. So it does not meet the requirement for being considered equivalent.

The only university that has given a positive reply was University of texas, Arlington. they said they accept 3 year degree and they do their own evaluations

DOES ANYONE HAVE EXPERIENCE DEALING WITH SUCH A SITUATION. I AM LOOKING FOR A UNIVERSITY THAT ACCEPTS 3 YEAR UNDERGRADUATE DEGREE (i dont mind if i have to do a bridge program)

details:

3 year bachelor degree ( 120 credits Evaluated to 104 credits by WC diagnostics )
Overall GPA 2.9 (last 60 credits 3.1)
Toefl 102
GMAT - attempting soon

You might be better off seeing if you can do some supplementary work to get the equivalence of a 4-year program, because you will otherwise be mighty limited in terms of schools.

Good luck on your GMAT!
Best,

I hope it is not MBA that you are applying to. With no work ex (or is it there?) it is impossible to salvage a tier-3/4 MBA.

Given the limited set of schools, if I were you, I would put off my MBA plans for now and check if Arlington will accept me into any of the Business masters programs. Do it as a bridge course, look for a decent job/work ex and then pitch for a top 10 MBA, may be after 3 years.

Trying times for international applicants and you have to tread cautiously.

So you are suggesting that i get the bridge program completed and get a us degree equivalent and then gain some experience and then apply for MBA ? .
I am not a perfect student (not even close) so i doubt i can go any of the top 10 mba. I expect my Gmat to be roughly around 600 not more than that.

Aim for the best possible Masters Program at Arlington that can get you a job. Work for five years, before thinking of an MBA. You may not need it, if scores continue to be at 600 levels.
