Razors Edg...

Kogod's your best bet, but honestly, you'd be a hard sell at any of these schools without a 600+ GMAT score.

As for suggestions... I've heard that Hult is pretty flexible on low GMAT scores for some students. Otherwise, one of the California State Universities? Long Beach?

Yes, I never heard of Hult turning down anyone. Take a look at: Shortcut to find the best US MBA www.find-mba.com/board/36065

Thank you Razor & Duncan, honestly i am not interested in HULT as they have campus in Dubai where do i live.

I am interested to do a 2 years MBA for different reasons, to shift my career and change my career into consulting.

I heard that i have better chance to be accepted as i am from Middle east i am not sure how accurate is this info.

so do you recommend another schools !?

I would recommend other schools. Use the approach in the post I linked to above.

Does it worth it to study on these schools as i already make around 60K tax free, after graduation from such school am i going to increase my salary ? or i have to look to better school to increase my current salary ?

That seems like a good question to ask an IT consultant in Dubai. Obviously the alumni of the top programmes in the UAE (LBS, Cass and Insead) will have much higher salaries. If you are limiting your focus to Dubai then that's a really micro-level question.

Honestly i am looking to work in US and gain experience from there by working on one of the 500 fortune companies, however i don't want after investing money and losing income get lower salary than the one i am already taking, this thing really confuses me as unluckily i didn't increase my GMAT score to be able to apply to better schools.

I am working on my GMAT to re-take for the 3rd time, though i am looking to find a decent school in case i didn't increase the score like on my second trial.

Hi Duncan,

I just read some of your posts and they are extremely helpful. One question that came up to mind when I read you said you had not seen HULT turn anyone down, I was looking into researching that school, is it a bad school?

I think it's fairly positioned in the market. It's not a top-tier school, obviously. It doesn't have AACSB or EQUIS accreditation. It's not a traditional business school, in the sense that neither most of its teachers nor deans are PhDs, let alone professional academics. It is tenacious in defending its reputation legally, so there's not much I can add to what remains on the big thread called "Hult" on this website. Read through it.
