I decided that I would like to pursue my MBA right after my undergrad (bachelors: business administration) because there is no better time than the present and I am not sure that I would go back later in life. I was wondering what schools you think I would have a chance at given my profile.
I will be 21 years old when I graduate. I went to a Community College and my GPA is around a 3.85 then I transferred to an AACSB accredited University where my GPA is around a 3.9. I perform some community service activities and am president of the school SHRM chapter. I have not taken the GMAT yet, but I plan on studying for the test a few months in advance and I am a relatively good test taker. So I am shooting for at least a 650 plus. I am going to apply to Rutgers-Camden, Rutgers-Newark, and Temple due to geographic location. Do these schools generally admit younger applicants and if not what schools do? If you need any more information about me please donâ€™t hesitate to ask.
Thank you for taking out the time to help me, itâ€™s much appreciated.
Last year, one in five of Rutgers' (Newark / New Brunswick) admitted students had one year or less experience, which is a fairly high percentage as business schools go. Temple at 15% is open to younger applicants
as well. Other B-schools in your area with relatively high percentages of young students are U. of Buffalo (39% with 1 year or less W/E), Rochester (57%), Hofstra (35%), Pittsburgh (26%), and Syracuse (29%). Compared to most B-schools, these are very high numbers.
