Hi,

I'm an Indian applicant, Male, 4 years WorkEx in IT, GMAT: 690.
I had applied to UCD SMurfit, Amsterdam Business School, Strathclyde University, Glasgow University and Lancaster University.

Out of these I had my interviews with UCD (dinged) and Lancaster University dinged me without even granting me an interview (I've asked for clarification).
I've received an admit from Amsterdam Business School (ABS) though.
Please advice on this. How good is ABS, really? Should i accept the offer (they've given me 4 weeks to accept/decline) ?
prior to my application, i did research about the college but i would like some professional opinion.

(Also it's holiday season in the UK so I might not hear from Glasgow or Strathclyde untill 2nd week of January)

Any advice is much appreciated.

Regards,
M

[color=#0000ff]certainly if you can wait to hear from the other schools and then make your decision- but I think you should also look at not just the rankings- but can you get a job from ABS? Do they have the recruiting contacts you seek?
If so- then I'd say attend! Best wishes to you and good luck making your final decision.
