Early career aplicant [#permalink] New post 16 Apr 2006, 02:19
Well i am applying to b-schools for fall 2007. As of now i'm a systems engineer at an IT firm in india. my gmat is 730(q50,v38,awa 5.5) and gpa is 9.7/10 in B.Tech from a reputed univ. My work experience as of now is one year and by the time i apply will be more than 2 yrs. I am looking at UCLA, Carnegie mellon coz they favor early career applicants. I am interested in doin m mba with specific learning in HR and OB. from what i have researched, these are the two top schools that fit into my profile. Can you think of any other school which will be decent bet for me? though i'm in more of a team-member role here at work, i have assumed significant leadership positions in my college and have many extra-curricular credentials. What is my chance of an admit for fall 2007? Can you help me out with some advices!!

Thanks

One really important thing for you will be your reason for why you want an MBA *now* if you want to get in. Do you want to start a business? Take on a leadership role in an NGO? Without this reason, you'll have a hard time getting in with so little experience.

I'll plug McCombs' Jump Start program again. It gives you the chance to get three years of work experience AND get an MBA from a top school.

Hey Scott,

Do you have any idea how competitve the McComb's Jumpstart Program is? The reason I ask is because I am going to be a senior in college in a few months and am interested in the program.

Thanks,
Jim

To be honest, I'm not sure how many applicants they get. But it's still a new program, and my guess is that they're still working on getting the word out. If you're at UT or somewhere else in Texas right now, you'll probably already have a good amount of competition. But if you're from out of state or otherwise have something that will make you look pretty unique, your odds of getting in could be pretty good.
