Dying for a top B-school [#permalink] New post 20 Aug 2004, 09:16
Hello, new to the site!! I have a unique professional and academic background and I finally have realized where I want to go with my career. I would love a position in consulting/general management for a healthcare/biotech/pharmaceutical co. I have MS in Physical Therapy (3.9 gpa). Biology undergrad (3.82) I opened my own practice and subsequently sold it. I worked in pharmaceutical sales for 4 years and currently am employed at Morgan Stanley in Finance (sales). I took the GMAT w/o preparation last year and scored a 600/ 4.5 for essay. DO I HAVE ENOUGH TIME TO PREPARE FOR THE GMAT, COMPLETE APPS, AND GET INTO SCHOOL FOR THE FALL??? PLEASE ADVISE?? What do you think about quitting work to study full time for gmats.... I am getting old 29.

You definitely have time to do these things, assuming that you're not intending to apply to a ton of schools, however you definitely should get going. You might need between 1 and 2 months to prepare for the GMAT depending on what score you're gunning for.

Whether you quit work right now to focus on apps, probably depends on how much cash flow you require, how many hours work demands, and how much you have to prepare for the GMAT and other items.

Ideally, you could work on multiple items at once (e.g., study for GMAT while selecting recommenders, while reviewing essays). Most are able to balance work with application prep. For me, I was able to do consulting while preparing my app, but I spent every free moment working on my app.
