What is the probability of a fresh college graduate, with no work experience, being selected in a full time MBA program? Would it be advisable to skip the GMAT in the final year of college then?
Would really appreciate some assistance!
It is very hard for college graduates with little or no full-time work experience to gain acceptance to top MBA programs. However, there are a few MB programs with will consider college grads, such as CMU Tepper and Rochester Simon. There are also MS in Management programs that are geared towards people early in their careers such as those programs at LBS, Duke, IE, and ISB. You may want to consider that option.
GMAT scores are valid for 5 years. So if you plan to apply in less than five years, you can take the GMAT while still in school or shortly after you graduate. Prepare, and aim to take it once. Don't take it on a lark
