  Planning for enrolment in US Business Schools

 In the recent times, the craze for admission to US B-Schools has considerably increased and rightly so, because after completing the course the job opportunities not only in US , but the entire World is wide open , probably the job of your choice. But before you start planning, following points must be kept in mind.

1. Do not just target the best school; one must try for at least four to seven B-Schools.

2. Do extensive research by visiting the websites of the schools, before concluding on your target B-schools.

3. If possible, talk or communicate some pass outs from these schools. This may be very useful.

4. Check out on location as well, if you consider that as an important factor for your admission.

5. Check out on Industry tie-up or affiliation with the school (Important because, you may go there during the course for your internship or may be for placement.)

6. Do not be only concerned about its ranking; be particular about the course availability that you want and its position in that category.

7. Evaluate your own Strengths and Weaknesses. Keep it in mind when applying for admission.

8. Be clear about your career goals?

9. Question yourself, why you should get selected in that school?

10. Work hard for your GMAT and GPA scores, because these are crucial, particularly if you are trying for the best B-school.

11. While your GMAT and GPA play important role, your academic career is also considered, so planning should be started right at the school level not only at your graduation level.

12. Students from IITs are definitely preferred, but that does not mean others have lesser chance of selection.

13. Extra-curricular activities also play in the final selection.

14. Last but not the least, do not follow the herd.
