Default GSU MAS program info


I am planning to apply to GSU for MAS program for Spring 2013. I have few questions regarding it if someone who is already graduated or currently studying from GSU advice me on this would be a great help!

1. What are GRE minimum requirement for MAS?
2. How about the job placements?
3. Does the program prepares you well for SOA exams?
4. Any actuarial exams and experience would be beneficial for the admission?

I have 2 years of actuarial experience from india/uk and have 2 actuarial exams from soa would that help in admission.

I graduated in 2008 as a career changer. It worked for me. But, if you already have exams and experience, the program won't do anything but prep you for MLC, MFE, and C. It would be cheaper to go to a TIA or other seminar. The actuarial job fair is nice for networking though.

As for GRE requirements:
From the Course Catalog:
The GMAT is designed to measure aptitude for graduate study in business and is not a measure of knowledge in specific business subjects. Competitive scores are required for a successful application, and the level of competitiveness is subject to change throughout the year. Scores significantly below current averages are not likely to be competitive. GMAT scores may not be more than five years old at the desired semester of entry. Applicants whose scores do not meet this age limit must retake the GMAT and have the current scores sent to GRSS.
Thanks, Tom's Alt & mod1!
