Program: FT MBA - Brand Management/Marketing and Entreprenuarship
GMAT : 730 (45Q/46V)
College GPA: 2.6 at the Citadel - BA in Political Science
Work experience: 8 years in sales - 4 years as a sales trainer
Industry: Pharmaceuticals and labor supply
Age: 30 Male

Wake Forest: Accepted $23k/year
Invited to interview for Dean's Scholars program - full tuition plus extras

FINAL DESTINATION : Wake Forest

Reason for choosing this school : Voted by recruiters as the number #2 best regional school in the WSJ. Highly respected in the SE - which is where I want to stay. And it has a small student body. All the professors know you by name. No class rankings because you work in teams. Lots of other reasons too.

Oh - and they now unofficially require all applicants to have at least 2 1/2 years exp. No young punks!
