This is a question we received before. Sharing with the forum members here.
I had a 3.6 GPA as an undergrad journalism major. Got laid off twice and have become an emergency medical technician, which I have been for the past three years. Good stories but not exactly elite MBA stuff - you can be an EMT with a high school diploma and a semester-long community college course.
I took the GMAT for admission to an M.S. in accounting program and got a 730 (stronger verbal than math). Have a 3.8 grad GPA. The vast majortiy of on-campus recruiting lately has been for internships...in spring 2011. Definitely geared towards undergrads.
Instead of joining a local CPA firm for $48k without much forecasted increase, I'm seriously thinking about applying to MBA programs. I think my GMAT could definitely be leveraged into better opportunities. Moreover, I think I could really benefit from a strong full-time MBA experience.
What rank of schools should I target? Are there any, say, 15-30, that are especially GMAT centric? I really want to end up in finance in NYC or Chicago.
