but arent many people using B-school as a bridge to switch careers(i heard ~50%)? So for example if I am in IT and I want to switch to IB( i am not) and I take IB courses. So come recruiting time my chances are not very good at all compared to someone who was in finance position?
It's true that many people who go to b-school are career switchers, myself included. But try to see it from the recruiter's point of view. Would you hire someone with b-school experience alone, or would you rather hire someone with b-school experience and prior work experience in the relevant field(s)? I'm not saying that it can't be done, but you would be at a disadvantage vs. someone else with prior experience, all else being equal. That's just a fact of life.
Things that you can do to help your situation are internships, club involvement, networking, and classes.
And how are the classes you are taking? some schools i seen have GPA system while some dont(like Yale) - does it matter a whole lot?
I'm not in b-school yet. I will be starting at Ross this fall.
Respect my Authoritaaah!
