Hello,

I am an Accounting undergrad in the midwest at a state school with a well known accounting program. Big 4 firms recruit heavily out of here and it is actually pretty easy to get a Big 4 position. However, I decided I am much more interested in Finance. I have been researching MSF programs because I would like to strengthen my finance background as well as move to the northeast. I have a 3.25 (we use plus minus, a=4.0, a- = 3.7, b+ =3.3 b=3 and so on) so I am a b+ average student. I have a 3.4 accounting GPA and I was wondering what you guys thought about my chances of getting into Villanova or Boston College straight out of undergrad. I have a finance internship this summer and worked at a bank for most of my junior year. I will graduate with 140 credit hours in four years (gpa has been tough to raise with 18 hours a semester).

Basically, 3.25 from large state school, finance internship, and I have taken CATs through Kaplan averaging 600. I have heard that the CATs in Kaplan underscore people on average. I would like to know, with this information, what you guys think I need to get on my GMAT to get into Villanova or Boston College.

Thanks

Hi nick30,

You're ultimately asking Admissions questions, so you would likely find it beneficial to speak with an Admissions Expert about your overall profile and plans. There's a Forum full of them here:

A free test from mba.com would give you a more accurate understanding of where you stand.
