What are my chances of admission to a Top 10 MBA program? I'm hispanic. My undergraduate GPA at Vanderbilt University was 3.595. Thereafter, I graduated from Emory University School of Law. Passed the Texas Bar Exam.
My GMAT score is a 730 (49Q, 42V), but that's after a 50 point improvement from prior 680 (47Q, 36V) from just a month ago. And, my history with standardized tests before hand is weak. My LSAT score was a 153 in the 59th percent and my SAT score was in the pathetic 1100s. It's a miracle I got into Vandy and Emory Law, much less graduate summa cum laude. Interestingly enough, I did win Vandy its first National Championship in college debate since the 1980s.
As for full time work experience, I don't have any. But, I have full-time internships with two NFL teams and a WNBA team. With the Tennessee Titans, I was in cheerleader marketing. With the Houston Texans, I was in community development. With the Houston Comets, I was in corporate sponsorships.
So, what are my chances of admission to a Top 10 school?
You have some great experience with the NFL and WNBA as an intern, but ultimately, it "doesn't count" as full time experience.
Were the internships during law school or were they during college? From the type of work you did for the Titans and the now-defunct Comets, I assume that was during college. Given your experience with sports teams, I'm guessing you'd like to get into sports perhaps?
But still at the end of the day, you still need full time experience, and as a law school grad, that's really hard to get if you're not at an elite school or at least at the top of the class, but you are in that category and hopefully have something lined up because Emory has a great law school.
With at least 2 yrs of solid WE, your chances look real nice for an MBA. However, not having any full time WE, and trying to get an MBA right after law school may give more questions to the adcom imo. Good luck!
I have an MBA from a Top 10 school and know (firsthand) the caliber of other peer students in my program.
With that said, your GMAT score is impressive and, along with your solid GPA, should make you a strong candidate. To add to that...The fact that you already have an advanced degree and have passed the bar (which is a daunting feat for many) conveys to the adcomms that you clearly have the aptitude to be successful in b-school...even without a business background. (Some of my MBA peers were doctors, attorneys, etc with no business background whatsoever and were very successful in the program).
There are a number of Top 10 programs that don't require any work experience. Also, some top programs actively recruit minorities to ensure a diversified student body. So I would suggest that you look at the admission requirements & class profile for the various universities...and you can gauge the strength of your application.
Just like the other poster said, you may want to get a few years of relevant work experience under your belt before applying to b-school. Meanwhile, consider taking a few night courses in basic business fundamentals (i.e. macro/micro econ, business stats, etc).
However, if you're dead-set on diving straight into b-school, you should definitely apply soon. If you don't get admitted, worse case scenario would be because you lack the work experience...not due to your academics, credentials, or aptitude (you clearly have all that).
