Advise on Working experience [#permalink] New post 14 Oct 2004, 10:58
hi,

I graduated from UC Berkeley with major GPA of 3.5. I graduated last year, I worked for a little more than a year and i am planning to go to MBA school.

My question is ... wht "good" schools out there that will accept people with 1 or 2 years worth of experience? I worked for like 1 year after i graduated by i used to work full time also when i was in school ... which if i total them all, it will be more than 2 years of working experience.

Please help me, since some people told me, my working experience is not enough.

thank you,
Jon

Most schools want at least 2 years of full-time work experience before starting business schools. Some schools (HBS, Stanford, Chicago) are a little more open to younger applicants, especially if they have extensive and competitive internships while in college and their post-college work experience is impressive. Obviously you should target those schools that accept more younger applicants.

For more advice, please see:
"MBA Admissions: Application Advice for Younger Applicants"
"Welcome Sign for Younger Applicants"

Good luck!
