Hi guys was just wondering, do you think i should take my test again or not?
I want to apply to business school, but i know i wont be on the higher end of the scale when it comes to work experience because i have only been working for two years. what do you guys suggest
Here are some of my details
High School-New Delhi, India
Undergrad: George Washington University (GPA 3.78;
Major: B.S.Economics: Concentrations- Finance&Forecasting,
& Minor: Statistics)
Junior Research Economist
@ International Monetary Fund (IMF)
I also have some miscellaneous stuff which i feel might be strong points on my applications but want to check em with you guys.
I have a joint publication to my name with an Economics Prof. from GW in the Journal of Labor Economics, on Long Term Labor Forecasting, it has been accepted and comes out in Sept '05.
Am also in the midst of starting my own company with a friend of mine, cant talk too much about it but the gist of it is: it is a Internet based trade and collaboration portal for businesses wanting to work in the Middle East (Current project value est. $5-$6.5million).
Interests: Am very interested in Finance related stuff, but do not want to get too concentrated because i feel i might end up just being a financial engineer, i want to be able to bring that ability together with my vocational skills. I love talking and interacting with people, and have always seen myself doing something in Venture Capital for small business growth. I have been at odds about whether i should get a MBA or a MS in Finance and then do my MBA in 3 years.
BIG FACTOR: if my score is satisfactory to give me a good chance at the ultra elite, i dont want to have to take it again, i didnt enjoy the strain of studying for it.
So if anyone can give me any advice i would appreciate it
I feel i am 3 years short in the work ex area with regards to getting into an ultra elite school.
1) do i have a chance?
2) if it is up in the air should i take the test again?
3) what do you think would be my best bet? the mba w/ some concentration or a ms in finance. or some other degree, which you may feel is better suited to someone like me.
