GMAT:760 - Meditations on a precocious MBA [#permalink] New post 15 Mar 2012, 14:47
I know that it is kind of early for me to supplicate for a profile evaluation considering that I have yet to earn my BA but I would like to know where I stand. Accordingly, I will keep it short. Thanks in advance for any feedback.

Nationality:Turkish
Age:22
Gender:Male

Undergrad:Economics/Top university in Turkey
GPA:~3.30
GMAT:760 (Q:51/V:41)

Virtually no leadership experience.
Little bit of volunteer work.
Basically, extracurricular activities are not my strong suit.

I am considering to apply at fall of 2012 and by that time I will have 6 months of work experience. The reason why I am so impatient is that I will probably be underemployed and/or in a job that is inconsistent with my career goals.

Post MBA goal: Management consulting, preferably in US but Canada or Australia would do as well. Other than that, location does not matter.

Given my background, where could I expect to be accepted?

Not a top 30, especially if you're under-employed, as you predict. That's a great GMAT score, but you come off as entitled. Sorry man.

HI czl,

Thanks for posting. First, I recommend you read this case study of a young candidate who was accepted into Harvard Business School and Tuck:

For your work experience, remember that most business schools like to see at least 2 years of work experience. For the candidates that are accepted with limited work experience, they typically have significant leadership experience from prior activities. At this time, I recommend you focus on your extracurriculars. Admissions teams are looking to cultivate future leaders, so any leadership and management experience you can discuss will be important.

Cheers,

Conrad and the Stacy Blackman Team
