Hey there, I know how you feel. My undergrad is a BEd with a major in Drama and minor in English. I didn't end up going in to teaching but I will say from my schooling and my practicum experience that teaching is actually a big leg up in teaching certain core leadership strategies. As far as course ...

I'm about a week in to my part time program and I have to say the pace is intense. My program is 3 classes a term: generally two spread out over the semester (one night a week for class for each) and a short intensive class (which we are starting off with). Part of our prep included a really helpful...

While I'm not UBC student (actually I'm enrolled at SFU, UBC's closest thing to a local 'rival' school) it's pretty safe to say that any degree/diploma from there is going to have a pretty solid reputation behind it simply because of the SFU and Sanders names. I don't know much about the MM program ...

Thank you Brent! That at least clarifies things... though I agree that it doesn't really make sense.

As someone who used Magoosh as their main study resource and did a bunch of the MGMAT practice tests I do have to say I found the way the Verbal questions of the two sources were written to be quite different and that I had different success rates with both. I performed better on the GMAC practice t...

Are you looking for a full time program? Which schools are you targeting? Personally I have pretty similar stats, 2.94 GPA, age 31 at the start of my MBA. For my application neither ended up being an issue at all and I completed my application without any input from professional an admission consult...

Thank you,

Hey SBKL922 I followed Magoosh's 3 month plan and really liked it. Basically I bought the suggested resources from the study guide. I stretched my studies to 3.5 months due to scheduling issues and a pre-planned Hawaii vacation in the middle of my study time but overall I was happy with the result. ...

A lot of your questions are going to have very different answers depending on the individual answering them. I can give you my story but I know there are many who will have come at things differently than me and thus have a very different process. I decided to do my MBA before I even started looking...

Generally I think most target scores are driven by a couple of different things: 1 - Target school/programs: This is probably going to be the #1 driver in what folks consider when coming up with a target score. If you are looking a specific school and program the average GMAT for said school/program...

How closely have you worked with each? I would say that while title and education of your references are important it's also important that they can comment on you and your work. The more familiar your reference is with you the stronger the reference will be. Just my two cents. I had to come up with...

If you are looking at specific local schools I might suggest scheduling an appointment with the recruitment office. I know for SFU they've got a really strong career services department that I will have access to for life as an alum which, while lower down my list, was a reason I liked the idea of d...

While I would say it's a solid plan, it really depends on what schools/programs you are targeting for your MBA. Most universities I've encountered have no issue with a 3 versus 4 year undergrad degree in Canada. If you have a list of schools that you are targeting check their program requirements on...

Hey Manishk, So I went through a similar cross roads a couple of months back, not completely applicable as I'm in Canada and well let's face it, Canadian universities are no where near as prestigious as their US counterparts when it comes to MBA's. I will share my thought process though and hopefull...

Generally if you hold an undergraduate degree you are fine. It will vary from school to school though. I would recommend getting in touch with the admissions and recruiting offices at schools you are targeting. They will be able to give you specific help with that and it's always good to get your na...
