I guess this is becoming an increasingly popular topic with many top B-schools encouraging such applicants.
I am one of them and intend to apply for Fall 2007. From whatever I have read, schools such as Stanford, Harvard etc. encourage such candidates.
I wanted to know what stand do the following schools take on this issue:

1. Michigan - Ross
2. Texas Austin
3. Yale
4. NYU-Sterm
5. UC-Berkeley
6. UIUC

Do they outrightly reject applicants with 2 or less years of work experience or do they actually admit at least a few of such candidates.
Please help!
Thanks!

How many years of experience do you have? I am asking because I too am thinking about applying as a "young" applicant.

Thanks

im a young applicant too and would gladly share some information with you..
According to 2004 reports these are the stats for students accepted with no or low (<2) work ex
1. Michigan - Ross- 5/434
2. Texas Austin-0
3. Yale-2/215
4. NYU-Stern-0/364
5. UC-Berkeley-0/230
6. UIUC - ??

Anyways although they are 2004 stats i cant see them changing too much with the above schools.. maybe the likes of H/S/W/K will pull away because of their recruitment power but none of the others..

I'm applying for fall 06..

hope i've helped..

Canis has provided some good insight into this problem. While it is not impossible, this looks like an uphill battle for young applicants to these schools.
