Anyone have experience with graduate business programs? I'm looking to apply within the next year or two and would appreciate some tips or suggestions. I graduated a few months back but have a less than stellar undergraduate GPA (2.5), but hope to accommodate it with 3-5 years of relevant work experience by the time I apply.

I assume I'm going to need to do really well on the GMAT/GRE as well as have a solid resume / statement... Hoping to get into USC or the University of Oregon.

gonna be very, very tough to get into SC with that gpa. i don't think they accept anyone below a 3.3 unless you have ridiculous experiences, recommendations, and gmat score. not sure about oregon but regardless i hope you kill the gmat.

Anyone know anything bout CUNY City College? It looks cool and it's not bad price compared to other NY schools. But I hear admissions can be tough. And I hope theres kids who skate there. That would suck to be in NYC and have no one to skate with.
You're going to college to learn, but nonetheless you're find students from various backgrounds/hobbies. You  definitely won't get the college experience feel that's for sure. However, by attending a CUNY city college, you'll take advantage of cheap tuition. The Cuny system is divided in schools with different majors/programs. Choose the one that best fit your field of study. Admission isn't too tough. Like any college, you must be engaged and motivated to learn.

My in-state tuition is already fully paid for via Florida Prepaid. I need to get like 79 more comm. service hours to get the Bright Futures scholarship. You can use that money ( $4,000? ) for whatever you want, right? So I could put that money towards studying a semester or two abroad?

what's your unweighted gpa? are you involved in any other clubs at your school? have you only taken one Sat 2 test? also, have you taken the ACTs?

FA is very, very generous. if your parents combined make less than 60-70k you'll be getting some damn good aid from them.

Unweighted 3.88 
I'm not in any other clubs other than video game club lol. I only took the SAT once, and the ACT I got a 26 but I'm planning to retake it for a higher score because I just got a prep book. My senior year course load is pretty rigorous with 4 APs and computer science 5-6 Honors.

All these accolades, but if you're not accented the first time around you could take the junior college route and just transfer in. I found that way to be easier.

if you get below a 30 on the ACT don't list your ACT score at all. Just list the SAT score instead. also how many AP tests have you taken your freshmen-junior year and what score did you get on them? your unweighted gpa is great so you have a good shot but the low weighted gpa suggests you had a fairly easy courseload which could hurt you a bit. also since you said you wanted to apply as an engineer you absolutely must get a 4/5 on AP Calc AB at the very least. My friends who are in the engineering program here all had 4/5s on AP Calc AB and BC, for the most part. if you have any other questions about admissions or anything else let me know

Has anyone here graduated from usc, lmu or nyu? How was your all around experience and did you get a job after finishing? I am interested in majoring in film, specifically screen writing or at least anything in the film or tv business
gonna be straight with you and tell you that the film program at sc and nyu are damn near impossible to get into. they only accept like 100 students every year i think. at SC, the film school is absolutely ridiculous. they just renovated everything with the 300 mil donation they received from george lucas and the connections here after you graduate are mindblowing, especially if you want to go into production. if you manage to get in to the program, chances are 100% likely you find a job afterwards.

I agree with the ACT part, definitely try doing better because a 26 is fairly average and USC's engineering program is Top 10 in the country. Hopefully you do well in your senior AP courses because powerball is right, your course load probably wasn't very hard in high school besides this year. The AP test doesn't matter a lot though tbh, it'll never hurt to have good scores on them, I know a girl in Viterbi that got a 2 on Calc AB senior year and still got into USC last fall with a similar unweighted GPA

I use to want to be a PT, but I recently changed my mind and want to become a chiropractor now. The PT field is so impacted now, it's ridiculous. Getting a job isn't a problem, but getting into PT school is the real hard part. In California, the average school has about 60 spots available and about 500 applicants. In your case, I would say to just get your bachelors and then from there see what you can get into. If you can get into PT school, then go for it, but if not, then try becoming a PTA and see where that takes you.

So I'm a CC student thinking about transferring to USC for Fall 2014. Currently my GPA is a 3.42 but should go up due to these two upcoming semesters. Since transfers apply in the spring, my question is if those classes taken in spring will still count towards my GPA and towards my GE? All i need left really is a language class so I wanted to knock that out before I may potentially start

you transferring after one or two years? if you're transferring after one year your spring gpa matters, if you're doing it after 2 years your spring gpa doesn't really matter but you need to send it in anyway. gpa is a bit low right now tbh and i don't think you would get in unless you wrote a miraculous essay. if you want any shot i'd raise it to a 3.6 if possible because i've yet to see any cc to sc transfers with less than a 3.5. Also what are you trying to major in? let me know if u need any help with the process.

Its actually going to be my third year coming up. I've been taking 12 units each semester because I didnt know originally that at least 60 units are necessary to transfer for a CSU which is what was my first plan. I never really considered USC until recently when I realized my gpa is really close to the mean. I have 40 units so far that count towards transfer. I know you can transfer with a max of 64 units which is what i'll have after this year. I know I can get my gpa up to at least a 3.6 no problem, and I got the plug for a letter of rec from a professor of my major which is journalism.
