Hi,

You can very well write your family business experience as your full time experience but at the same time you will need to demonstrate that you are pursuing that as full time job and you are fully involved in day to day activities. Business schools appreciate the applicants with family business background as for them that is a fresh pool of potential businessmen. Dont worry about your experience, you are definitely at par or better than any other applicant in terms of your experience.

Hi,

Yes... You can mention this as a full time work ex. Infact you should use this to your advantage to differentiate yourself from rest of the applicant pool as there are rarely any applicants with this kind of profile.

Just make sure that you don't end up in giving a picture to the B school adcom that you are just superficially involved in your family business and have mentioned these just ti get an admission.

Cheers
