    first of all i hope that u know that scholarships are negligible in MS in BA. scholarship of 2-3k when fees is 50k is not counted as scholarship. USC and USF do this a lot.

    once u know that make up ur mind about MS in BA.
    MS in BA is an awesome course with huge scope.

    Ur profile looks great ( though i have never seen low percentages/CCGA from south indian colleges especially VIT) - chakkar kya hai ye ???

    also i have no idea about GMAT cos GRE is pretty widely accepted rather almost everywhere (blame ETS - they want to replace GMAT completely with GRE)

    Looking at ur profile i can say most unis u have listed will give u admission so why not add some really good ones.

    University of Texas Austin and NCSU MS in BA are really good program. costly and hard to get in but have superb value and great placement. NO ON CAMPUS JOBS ... CLASSES 9-5 DAILY. slightly ambi for u.

    from ur list remove university of south florida (no need of so many safe and well i am assuming u will look to MS in BA)

    Go to NCSU BA page and look at their placement report .. BRACE FOR IMPACT

    USC is highly ranked and awesome university but is rondikulous costly.

    Also in my opinion look for programs that are in STEM.

    Bently has MS in Marketing analytics as well as MS in BA .. but in my opinion its better to go for MS in BA ( but u will get better uni anyway)

    LSU is also very good .. same course as NCSU (placement are good) kinda safe for ur profile (may be slightly moderate) BUT NO ON CAMPUS JOBS CLASSES 9-5 DAILY.

    Uconn is one of the cheapest (25k only against 40k of most). is in stem and has good curriculum. but has a Batch size of 120-140 definately safe for u.
