I'm an international student majored in finance at BU Questrom. Got a terrible gpa (2.89). I'm at home in China for a gap year (doing an intern at a brokerage firm

I'm planning to go back to the US for graduate school to rebrand myself and try to find a full time job after graduation. I prefer east coast since I spent four years there. I know chances for me to get into IB in NYC is small so I'm also interested in other positions with valuation experiences and transition to IB later.

However If I didn't sucessfully land a job in the US I'll have to find a job back home.

I think UofR is great because of its STEM designation which gives me 36 months of work authorization without sponsorship. But JHU would provide a stronger brand name if I were to go back home (as well as a better network considering hundreds of chineses students each year).

I just got offer from UofR, JHU, Bentley and Babson, I'm still waiting for USC and WUSTL

Which school do you think is better suited for my situation?

Thanks a lot for the advises in advance!!!

I attended one of these programs. Even though I broke into banking with a lot of luck and about 10 months unpaid or paid very little, only 1 or 2 (max) out of every class make it and most get shitty mid/back-office jobs. And I didn't even need sponsorship which I suggest you do
