Many people might think I am overthinking all of this, but I simply want to get insight on what is the best route for an MBA from a M7/T15 school.
I have narrowed down my list to the following schools:
Major: Industrial Engineering/Operations Research
University of Southern California (USC)
Major: Computer Science/Business Administration
Business Information Management
Money is not too much of an issue with any of these options, I am mainly worried about being able to maintain my GPs.
- Basically, my concern is if I get around a ~3.0 GPA at UC-Berkeley would that hurt my chances of getting admission into an M7 school, as opposed to getting a 3.5+ at UC-Irvine?
- I am leaning towards picking UC-Berkeley, but what if I am unable to handle the academics and maintain my GPA at the same time is what my main concern is. How would a low GPA from UC-Berkeley look? How can I make up for that low GPA? I am mainly worried about physics and math that I have to take at UC-Berkeley.
- I am also considering USC because it has the major I want to purse, however I like all 3 majors equally. Does the difficulty of the major have an effect on MBA admissions?
- What is the best major to pick in order to pursue an MBA?
- Any other general advice on how to get into an M7/T15 MBA Program is appreciated, as I am very confused.
