Chances as young applicant [#permalink] New post 19 Jun 2006, 14:25
Hello all,

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 don’t hesitate to ask.

Thank you for taking out the time to help me, it’s much appreciated.

Jim,

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.

Good luck,

Thank you very much for your insight. I know you will not know until I take the GMAT, but do you think I will have a good chance of gaining admissions to at least one of these schools.

Thank you,
Jim

Jim,

Yes, I would say one at the very least and very possibly more, given your GPA and assuming a 650 GMAT.

Good luck,
