I know A&M San Antonio requires a min 2.6 GPA with a scale the determines what you need on the GMAT.
A&M SA said they work off a overall gpa X 200 and must equal to 970
Last 60 hour gpa X 200 and must equal 1050
But I do not know how true that is since they are a new school so they might be accepting a lower number. My question is if anybody is going there currently for a MBA and what scores and GPA got them into the MBA program??
Thank you!

For the last couple of weeks, I have been fooling my mind whether I should stay in Incarnate Word University, or transfer to Texas A&M San Antonio. I have been accepter to Texas A&M MBA program but I don't know if it's worth transferring there or not.

The reason I'm saying this is because I have a couple of friends who told me that Texas A&M is a better school than UIW because everybody knows it, and you will have better career prospects and job opportunities if you want to stay in the US

Just to let you know guys, Incarnate Word is a private catholic school slightly more expensive than Texas A&M which is a public school. (money is no matter)

Anybody from San Antonio (or from anywhere) can help me here please ?
A degree from Texas A&M is very attractive to employers. So, yeah, it's worth your time.

I would like to disagree with many on here.............. Nowadays, unless you are going to work for an Alumnus from your school. Employers dont care where you got your degree from as long as your GPA is good, your interview is good, and if you are given a test you score well on it. Couple of examples.........I know a woman that graduated from Utsa with honors, and also aced the USAA exam. She got a directors position over a ton of applicants with degrees from more prestigious universities. I also have several friends with degrees from UIW, OLLU, Utsa........and they are all in management. They were also selected over other degreed people from select universities. Just throwin out there what Ive seen. Good luck!!

By the way GO RUNNERS!!!!! Meep Meep!!!

Wasn't until I moved to Texas that I heard of A&M. I don't care if they are the 'second largest school in the second largest state'. Hell, half this state isn't even lived in on the Western end. Stick with IW.
