Here's my story:
I'm 24 years old.
- Attended a community college for 2 years then transferred to UCLA.
- Graduated from UCLA with a BA in Political Science this past year.
- I wanted to go to law school, but after taking the LSAT and completely blowing it, as well as all the bad press the law field had been getting, I'm having second thoughts on this career path.
- Now I'm looking into an MBA
2 years working at a retail store
3 month internship at a marketing company for Red Bull entertainment (recent)
3 month internship at a talent management company (recent)
Now I am well aware my experience is severely lacking, but would a top school take into consideration that about 2 years of my life was spent dealing with a life-threatening medical condition?
I would ideally join an internship program over summer while in an MBA program in hopes of finding a career in marketing afterwards.
Would this be realistic or just wishful thinking on my part?
Why not??? It's true that you don't have standard MBA experience, but people get in all the time with the desire to do something new. The single thing that will most help you out at this point: kicking ass on the GMAT!
So make sure that happens, even if it takes a few tries.
