Cranfield : Have an offer for 2021 intake and Gmat of 680 as a precondition

I don't understand why you are not applying for FT-ranked schools, since the sort of opportunities you mention are given most to those people. 

If 2021 is an option then use the time to apply to better schools, do your research and reduce any concerns about borrowing to afford the right schools. Read the posts linked on my profile pages about LinkedIn and scholarships.

Depending on your precarity, which might make things urgent, Edinburgh and Durham both place more than a quarter of their cohorts into finance and are much better choices.

So would you say Cranfield would fare worse off right now compared to Durham or Edinburgh? Asking this because if i do go for 2021 then I might want to try and give GMAT a shot.

If 2021 is an option then you should instead aim at the schools that place best into the roles you seek.
