    Ya I've also heard of great things about IU business school. My gpa is 3.7 weighted. Does Kelley schools have a good reputation in chicago and elsewhere? @obsessedwcollege @my2caligirls

    on CC if you want some thing more concrete, you need to post your UW gpa, if the school does not support UW gpa you need to recalculate it based on A=4 B=3 etc.

    @Jsan81 IU Kelley will take your WGPA - above post is correct though that many base admission on UW GPA as well. Just sharing as IU Kelley direct admit requirements are specific and the 3.8 can be WGPA. With your grades and ACT score I think it is one the best schools you can get into for business. Get your ACT to a superscored 30 and petition for direct admit as your GPA is close. Depending on what list you look at they are top 10 or top 20 and should be well known nationwide.

    Ok I believe my superscore right now is a 29 so I'm close. Do you think Boston University question business school compares to Kelley? @my2caligirls
  • my2caligirlsmy2caligirls Registered User Posts: 615 Member
    @Jsan81 yes BU comparable. I have a D18 who will be looking at business schools as well. This table from Poets & Quants is based on 2014 rankings but I like it as it shows USNews and BW rankings as well as their own. They have an updated version as well but it may have dropped the side by side ranking comparison. Honestly, I think anyting in the top 30 is very good and it gets down to where you can get it and best fit. For my D we like IU and Ohio State as we think they are very good and offer decent OOS merit scholarships but your budget and goals maybe different. Finally, if you have a 29 superscored now, focus on whichever subscores you can reasonably improve and I'm sure you can hit a 30 superscored which helps for IU. On the Ohio State forum I believe people are sharing they got the National Buckeye award w a 29 ACT. So you are close to both of these and seem to match their overall requirements. Good luck.

    I have friends at UMN (Carlson) and they love it. The school is in the city and it is relatively easy to get part time jobs, internships etc. You should at least consider it if you like an urban environment.

    Do you think I have any chance at Michigan? I loved it so much and I know how hard it is. @my2caligirls Say I can get a 31 on ACT which I believe is entirely possible, does that put me in good range or no?
  • my2caligirlsmy2caligirls Registered User Posts: 615 Member
    @jsan81 if you can get your ACT up to a minimum of 31 (32 ideal) I think they are worth applying to but will still be a reach with the 3.7, plus probably not direct admit to Ross. Spend some time on the Michigan forum and see what others are getting in with.
  • Jsan81Jsan81 Registered User Posts: 92 Junior Member
    @my2caligirls thank you for all your help
  • MYOS1634MYOS1634 Registered User Posts: 30,484 Senior Member
    Michigan is a very high reach oos especially for Ross.
    Run the npc first.
  • Jsan81Jsan81 Registered User Posts: 92 Junior Member
    what is npc? @MYOS1634
  • MYOS1634MYOS1634 Registered User Posts: 30,484 Senior Member
    Net Price Calculator.
    You must run it for every college you're interested in, before you apply.
    Then you bring each result (they'll be very different depending on college) to your parents to determine whether you can afford to apply.
    You can also use the NPC result to email Admissions and ask whether they typically add merit moeny or if merit is added in.

    Oh ok, I understand now. Thanks, any schools you think i should check out? @MYOS1634
