I would not suggest Nova or Phoenix. I’m not sure employers take them seriously.

It is not just your GRE, it is also your GPA. You might not like hearing this, but you may not be MBA material. If you don’t meet the requirements for USF, look at other public universities but also do some serious soul-searching. How well did you handle your undergrad classes? Did you struggle? Why was your GPA not up to MBA admission standards? Can you handle grad school? Think about it.

If you graduated recently, you may be premature for an MBA. MBA programs prefer students with 2-4 years work experience after the first degree. Some accept students right out of college if they have good grades and a high GMAT score. Some MBA programs are designed specifically for new college graduates without work experience. But in those programs you don’t get the benefit of learning from other students who have work experience. A lot of valuable learning takes place through class interaction. Also when you graduate your job offers will be about the same as a business undergraduate gets because you have no work experience, and you’ve been two years out of your undergraduate field so it’s hard to get work in that area.

Consult the Official MBA Guide. It’s a comprehensive free public service with more than 2,000 MBA programs listed worldwide. It publishes only official data provided by university administrators, without modifying or editing the data. The Official MBA Guide allows you to search for programs by location (US, Europe, Far East, etc.), by concentration (finance, marketing, aviation management, health management, accounting, etc.), by type of program (full-time, distance learning, part-time, executive, and accelerated), and by listing your own criteria and preferences to get a list of universities that satisfy your needs. Schools report their accreditation status, tuition cost, number of students, class sizes, program length, and a lot of other data. Schools provide data on entrance requirements, program costs, program characteristics, joint degrees, and much more. You can use the Guide to contact schools of your choice, examine their data, visit their web site, and send them pre applications. You can see lists of top 40 schools ranked by starting salaries of graduates, GMAT scores, and other criteria.

A good GMAT score (only a small number of MBA programs accept the GRE) and several years of good work experience can offset a low GPA in admission decisions. And don’t waste your money on for-profit MBA degrees. They just don’t have the reputation that results in good job offers upon graduation.
