I am a Biology major senior from Johns Hopkins University with a business minor (we have no business major). I was pre-med and changed my mind and want to pursue business as it has always been a passion. I have a 3.75 GPA and 730 GMAT. My work experience is quite limited business wise as I was pre-med and consists of research/volunteering. I was selected for a marketing internship interview weekend but didnt get the job. On campus I have held three leadership positions including in a business organization. I know I need work experience and believe I can get some quality work through some networking contacts. What and how much would I need? Basically what do I need to do to get into a top 25 MBA program? I really appreciate the help.

Given your GMAT score, strong undergrad credentials, and interesting premed profile (helps you stand out), you might be able to get into some top 25 schools now though your odds would obviously be best at the schools nearer the 25th spot than the first. If you can get 1 to 2 years of quality leadership (presumably your best bet would be outside of work) then you could aim higher in the top 25. Most schools still like to see 2-3 years of work experience but will make exceptions for strong applicants. Schools don't really expect to see leadership at work with young applicants like you, so concentrate on doing something "big" leadership-wise outside of work and you should get into a number of top 15 programs. See's info here on young applicants.

Good luck,
