Low GMAT score! :(

They are not ready to disclose these info until I apply. Any other way? :)

University of Arizona (Eller) (AZ) suggested by you seems to be asking for a better score when I checked their site. Businessweek too confirms it:

BusinessWeek's data is usually solid. Mine are less up to date for Eller.

Another heart breaker :(

The below link says average GMAT score for DePaul is 625?

Can you please tell me which is the most authentic site to get these information?

Hi Duncan,

After my bit of research I am now concentrating on below schools:
1. Howard
2. Williamette
3. Florida State University
4, Clarkson University
5. DePaul (Not sure about them, I had sent my profile asking if I could apply to them and they asked me to apply)

The feedback about Pace has been consistently bad, rest have a bit more GMATrequirement. The placement stat of Howard show that they have been getting students to $ 80k level, true?? Clarkson has one year MBA, its luring me more than anyone else. Do you think a two MBA would help me more?

I just frogot to mentione one more observation, the placements of almost all the colleges in this GMAT range have around 60% students placed in Marketing, sales/ supply chain, operation? This supply chain pays well?

I think the one year MBA is good for US students who don't need to change career. As an international student you will really benefit from a more extensive course with more opportunities for projects, internships, soft skills development and electives.

Supply chain pays okay ;-)

Hello Everyone,

While applying to a certain college, they have asked me to get a transcript evaluation done thru NACES certified institutions. Is it really required? Is there any way to avoid it? It is priced somewhere at $ 100.

This is very common with many US universities. Each university decides on its own policy.

PS Normally a NACES evaluation service is $150 to $170. If you find a $100 service, do post about it.

Hey Duncan,
Hope you are doing fine.
I have another query. Is there a way to get into US without TOEFL? Is it mandatory for all the colleges?

Well, the courses are all taught in English so they will, naturally, need to know that students have the right English-language skills. There will be English courses with lower requirements... in languages schools.

Try Thunderbird MBA. They accept people with low GMAT (average 600) and are consistently ranked in the top 100 global MBA (ranked 45th in the US by BW). They accept a whopping 78% of all applicants, so I guess you would stand a very good chance.

Have a look here:

Good luck!

There are probably some non-ranked public universities accepting MBA candidates with 550 GMAT scores in the Chicago area, but not as good as Thunderbird. Why are you so interested in Chicago anyway? What about the south-west region where jobs are plentiful and crime rates are much lower?

With all your specific requirements, I would suggest you apply at a community college, or some random online MBA program and do it from Chicago.

Normal MBA programs are for people who have at least 2 years of work experience. Why not wait until you get 2 years of experience? I don't think any employer will hire you if you go for an MBA straight from your undergrad. Be creative, volunteer in your community while working at Starbucks for the next year or so if you cannot find a job and you should be on your way to a good MBA program. Don't rush the MBA experience.
