Hi everyone!

I am new to the forum but I just got my acceptances to three of the MS Finance programs I applied to and I would love to hear your opinion on the colleges/ curriculum/ opportunities for international students, etc.

Firstly, I am an international student (did my undergrad in the US) and I have ZERO finance experience. My GMAT was 650 as well. However, I have some great experience outside of finance (working with billion dollar companies during my OPT) along with good managerial presence, that I believe got me my admissions.

The college list:
- Babson College (20k scholarship) - MSF
- Case Western (7k scholarship) - MSM Finance
- Purdue University - MSF

Who I am waiting to hear from:
- Fordham, UoT, Ohio State

I am not sure what my chances are with the other colleges so I want to go ahead and ask for your opinion on those three. I do hope to be able to work in the US after my degree so I really want to make a well-thought out decision. ANY advise/ opinion is highly appreciated.

Thank you!

If you get OSU or UT Austin, then the choice is tough. Right now, Babson all day. Best scholarship, I believe they are STEM, you are in Boston (close to NYC as well).

IMO, OSU is the better program, but location is tough and you need to look at total cost. UT Austin is one of the top programs in the country. With your GMAT, I think you’d be a long shot.

Thank you so much for your help! Yes, this is what I have heard that if I get UT, I should go there (but obviously, the chances are low).

If you have a lopsided gmat -very high math / average Verbal, as I think you may, since you applied and were admitted to Purdue and OSU etc., you may prefer OSU for its larger math oriented international alumni base.
