There are many schools to choose from if you want to study Finance. When I was considering business school I checked out the rankings provided by U.S. News. While this is a good place to start and you'll get a lot of information from the website, don't let the rankings be the only factor in your decision. You will also have to consider costs as well as proximity to where you live. I'm currently in business school on a part-time basis at Rutgers University. I choose Rutgers based upon rankings for the part-time program as well as the costs. Another school I was considering, NYU, had a higher ranking but was more than double the tuition. In the end, I'm happy with my decision.

stern is my dream graduate school but i am afraid of my gpa.

Stern is consistently ranked as one of the top schools in the country and yes, you do need an impressive GPA to get in. On top of that, it's one of the most expensive since it is in NYC. That being said, I'm not saying don't apply but make sure you apply to more than one school in case you don't get in or even if you do get in are afraid of the costs.

To be honest, i don't mind the costs because my parents want me to enter good graduate school and they are willing to pay whole fee. Now i am international student who are studying finance in john molson school of business in Canada. As undergraduate student, we hardly ever get good gpa like students in USA. The class average gpa of our commerce course usually is below 2.5.

I think a school like Stern is aware of the different international grading scales including Canada so if you feel like your GPA is competitive, go for it. That being said, understand that the GPA is not the only criteria. Go online and look at the application. You will probably see there is an emphasis placed on community service and other extra-curricular activities. Don't be discouraged. The worst that could happen is that you don't get in which happens to plenty of students who apply to their dream schools. It's not the end of the world. You may have a below average GPA but may be able to make up for it in other areas.

Thank u very much. I think your suggestion is very useful. Chinese like applying graduate school while application information only focuses on gpa or undergraduate school background.

Anywhere that offers the degree and you would like to study, is the short answer. Experience has taught me that you don't need to worry so much about which school you go to, as much as what you do when you are there. As long as it is a reputable, certified college/institution that you want to attend, you can't really go wrong.
Basically, find a "good" school that fits your life and what you want to do, and go for it. What you learn and accomplish while you are there is what will benefit you the most (as opposed to going for a "top" school and struggling academically, financially, etc. . .). Hope that helps and good luck!
