This is not true...you will be able to get a student visa for an MBA, it does not have anything to do with your undergraduate major. let me know if you have any questions and good luck! Start thinking about your stories, what your essays will be, how you will position yourself etc.

Yes this is true, you need a few years of work experience. Depending on the job, some jobs require more or less than others and each school requires slightly different number of years (which is a range as well, no magic number) but in general you should get experience first.

Generally work experience is advised, but sounds like you don't want to work first? Like I said you can go straight but its just much harder to get in, also I wouldn't recommend it because people who do that have a harder time getting a true post MBA job because companies don't want to give you that kind of role without experience. It really will help you long term to get experience first before the MBA.

As I said you can but its MUCH harder to get in right away, very few people do it...you really need to have a solid story as to why MBA and hopefully some good work experience while in school. Let me know if you want me to help craft that story for you, because for you it will be even more important.
