    Hi all,

    I am second year at Durham University and want to do a Masters in America. I am looking at HBS, CBS, Princeton and Wharton Business School. Interested in Finance. I have a lot of experience within the industry around the world (Asia/America/UK) and a lot of EC's aswell. Will most likely graduate with a 1st from Durham. Was just wondering if I have a good shot for the schools listed? Would people recommend getting a Masters or working for a few years and just going to the states to do an MBA?

    Any advice appreciated.

    Your expected first helps. Have you taken the GRE or GMAT test (preferably an even top 80% in both sections)? I have seen some Durham grads at good US grad schools. For business schools, adcoms prefer a few years professional experience, how many years full time work do you actually have? Apart from academics, references and career development, adcoms also look at ECs. Start early with prep as application require essays, tests, interviews and even school visits. Good luck.

Do you agree with the PM's proposal to cut tuition fees for some courses?
