I am sure this has been asked many times before, but I can't find a thread with my specific circumstances.
UMass Boston Senior Finance/Accounting 3.95GPA
1 year long finance internship at a major bank
1. I know the typical answer is experience then MBA/MSF, but I am 35. Three years exp. plus two for the degree means I'm a 40 year old freshly minted MBA/MSF. If I go immediately I can continue my internship on a graduate level and apply for one of the myriad 'summer analyst' positions. This would create 2 years of experience, albeit internship experience. Should I apply immediately or go for experience?
2. Debating BC or UMass.
UMass can be completed in 1 year (I get to waive classes)
UMass costs 9K
BC is a much better program
BC takes 2 full-time years
BC costs 39K
Please give reasons, I know the typical answer would be wait and BC, but I can see the merits of both sides of both questions and would appreciate some fresh perspectives.
