Lesser work experience [#permalink] New post 26 Oct 2005, 11:17
Hi,

I intend to apply for an MBA course beginning 2007. I did my undergrad in India and came to the US for my Master of Science degree (4.0 GPA). I have begun working in a Fortune 100 company and should have 2 years of full time experience by the time I begin my MBA. During my undergrad, I had started my own web design company along with my friend which did pretty alright but transferred it wholly to my friend once I came to the US. Also, as a grad student, I was working part-time in the same company where I have begun my full-time employment. I plan to appear for my GMAT next year and hope to get a score around 700. I plan to apply to top tier schools. Would "insufficient" work experience be an obstacle to my application? I have read that while some schools such as Purdue, Stanford, UCLA encourage early applicants, others such as Kellogg's firmly demand around 5 years experience. Is there a list of schools which consider applicants with lesser work experience? Please help

Thanks!

I don't know of such a list. You may want to check BW or WSJ which have lots of data and see if you can "rank" schools from youngest average age up.

An unofficial list of top schools friendly to less experienced applicants would include HBS, Stanford, UCLA, Wharton, and Columbia.

Good luck!
