Need help with University Selection

Post Tue Sep 23, 2008 11:14 pm
My profile
MTech IIT 1998 - 9.0 out of 10
10 yrs in IT
worked with big companies including GE, Wellpoint, Kaiser
Healthcare IT experence of 6+
was involved in starting non-profit social activities to help retirees.

I read lot of negative things - related to yr of work experience and age?
How important is that factor? I heard that with 10yrs of work exp ..chances get slim... is that true?

I am giving my GMAT on Sep25. Aiming for 700+

I was thinking of applying to
Stanford (fulltime)
Warton (fulltime) - Healthcare Mgmt
UCLA (parttime)
Berkeley (parttime)
Duke (fulltime) - Healthcare Mgmt

Can somebody suggest my chances? And/Or other universities I should focus on?

Dear Shardullavande,

Thanks for your post. I have already responded to your query in the general forum (where you had posted it as well).

http://www.beatthegmat.com/what-are-my-chances-t19242.html#81042

As per the forum rules, please refrain from cross-posting going forward. Cross-posting creates extra work for the experts who tend to this free forum and also makes it harder for users to find information quickly due to repetitive content.

Regards,

Graham
