Firstly, I wanted to know whether it is advisable for international students to attend a tier 2 Canadian B-school considering the smaller Canadian job market and limited opportunities for internationals.
Secondly, How much average GMAT score is required by the top 5-6 Canadian schools for them to consider our profile for their programs. Would a score of around 650 suffice for someone who has 3-4 years of experience?
