MBA in New York

Is St. John's located in Jamaica, the part of the city of New York close to JFK? Because if it is than the location couldn't be worse. I have passed jamaica several times when going to the airport and it is certainly not a safe place to hang around.

I am not 100% sure. The neighborhood "Jamaica" in Queens, New York City itself is definitely not a nice place to hang out. However, since the postal address puts "Jamaica" as the city name instead of NYC, it is possible that there is also a city called Jamaica somwhere in NY state. I would double-check that in any case before accepting an offer. good luck!

Listen, you are obviously an intelligent person, but like the rest of us, you got into too much fun in college especially your early years -no?. Got bad grades, that you somewhat salvaged later , senior years perhaps, when you found out you might be flunking out. There are two ways to get over you poor GPA.
(1) Do a second Bachelors degree. Meaning find college that will allow you to do a major of the 2nd degree only, and, accept your other credits, even if they suck. Make sure those 12 or 15 hours are B's and A's. It does not take that long. Now that you are grown you can do this in less than a year (Five Courses in fall, Five coures in Spring And one or two courses in summmer, and you are done. Make sure the courses you study are somewhat close, so you can for the most part study once for two courses etc. you know the routine. You might find you have channelled your energy in the right direction. If you cannot maintain a B average, then maybe college is just not for you. BUT I beleive everyone can go thrpough college with flying colors if they put their mind to it.
(2) Find a graduate school that will take you on probation for the first 9 hrs (3) courses and maintain a B average or Ace the course, then you might be able to transfere to the Ivy leageu of your choice provided you score high on GRE/GMAT or their entrance exams. Don't waste your time on CLEP, Clep is designed for people who have actually done the courses and maintained an interest in the subject. It is nothing to do with your intelligence. They do not give you time to "solve" the problems. All you have time for is to pick and chose what you really know. If you are mortal like some of us and you have been out of school for a few months, that can prove to be an exercise in futility.

I know about the top schools, but what is there to say about the following programs?
- European School of Economics
- Manhattan Institute of Management (MIM)
- Metropolitan College of New York
- Niagara University
It is very important for me to able to live in NY city, and not in some nearby town.
Thanks,
Hiroko

It's difficult to figure out how these schools are... About the MIM, I'm not so sure now, they just offer an Internat. MBA (what's the specific thing about that?), and their Partnerschools are the following in Europe, of which I didn't hear before:
EBS Paris, MBS Munich Business School, The Baltic Russian Institute, WELLER International Business School, Fachhochschule St. Pölten..
That's not the most prestigious schools I suppose?

As an international student I would try to concentrate on the top schools in NY, ie
# New York University (NYU) - Leonard N. Stern School of Business
# Columbia University - Columbia Business School (CBS)
# Cornell University - Johnson Graduate School of Management
# Fordham University

As far as reputation is concerned, I would say #1 Hofstra, #2 St. Johns, dont know the third one you name. However, you should be aware that Hofstra is not located in NYC but one hour away from the city in upstate NY.


Hofstra is on Long Island, not upstate! If you ever watched that movie "Wall Street", Long Island is where Gordon Gekko plays on the weekends after 100 hour weeks on Wall Street
Unlike other schools in the area it actually has a stunning campus and vibrant sports scene
it takes 30-40 min by train to get to Manhattan

So you'd actually say Hofstra is the best of all NY schools, better than Columbia, Cornell, Fordham, and NYU? Or did I get you wrong there..

tier one
columbia, nyu, cornell (this is not NYC region,Cornell is closer to Bufallo than NYC)

tier 2
hofstra, fordham

tier 3
pace, st johns, baruch

If you can get into tier one, GO! forget about the other schools.

If you cant then go to Hofstra, this is the school with your best bet of getting a good paying job on Wall Street.

I see, that's the idea that I had as well. But you seem to be a big fan of Hofstra, why that?

I am a big fan for getting your $$ worth education.
I believe that in NYC outside of NYU and Columbia Hofstra is the best value.

However in the US, University of Florida is the best value by far.

Sure, that's what we are all looking for, but difficult to judge from outside. I really appreciate your comments here!
The details you give about Hofstra make it sound a very good place to study, true. How do you happen to know about this, did you study there or know people who did their MBA there?
