Business School help-Gmat-resume-any advice welcome [#permalink]
03 Jun 2011, 08:06
I am finishing undergraduate in three years and I would like to go straight to a top ten business school. I know this is very ambitious but i am sure it has been done and I am willing to work very hard.
A little about me:
3.73 gpa at University of Miami, Fl and now transferring to Ohio State.
I need 120 semester credits to graduate and I have about 45. So technically I am in the middle of my sophomore year, but i don't like to use the terms freshman and sophomore, etc., because I am graduating in three years.
So mainly I am looking for advice on GMAT prep, on business school prep, on maybe getting experience for grad school.
I have an internship right now over the summer, two days a week where I work at no cost for a non-profit called BetterInvesting that has about 100,000 members in it. It is a branch under NAIC (National Association of Investor's Corp) Their website is betterinvesting dot org if you want to learn more (I'd post it but it wouldn't let me because I am a new member) I am working a their world headquarters in Madison Heights Michigan after only my first year in college under the accounting department and possibly marketing department later this year.
Under them, I will also have the opporunity to be a college campus representative and trying to start my own investment club.
Besides this I am wondering what else I can start to do to get extensive experience and build my resume. Clubs, fraternities, interests, etc.
GMAT-I am looking to take the GMAT soon because I want to devote the last part of my three years in trying to get experiences, internships, etc and i thought this summer might be a good start. Any recommendations? Good idea? Bad idea? I have had one accounting class and I am pretty good at taking tests, I got an 800 on the math section of the SAT.
Please let me know if you have any advice for me, thanks.
