Just wondering if anybody can help me out. I graduated with hons.in occupational therapy from india. i worked for 1 year and then i took admission in l.l.b. hons.(law) which is a full time postgraduate degree in india.
During my studies i continued working as an occupational therapist- almost 40-45 hours a week- to support my education and gain experience in my original degree. As soon as I finished my degree in law i tookup a job in ireland as an occupational therapist. i have been working in ireland for more than 4 years now. can anyone suggest me what are my chances in top colleges. i don't have a great gpa- 60% in occupational therapy and 50% in law. i am hoping to score good in gmat-fingers crossed.
guys -praetorian and others- please suggest me.

Excelgmat,

If you get a good GMAT score (ideally 700 to offset grades), present well-thought-out goals, have some community or extracurricular experiences to write about, and have some decent leadership stories then you could have success with some top 25 schools. Your unusual background (occup. therapy, law, Ireland) would help set you apart. You will need to show how all these pieces fit together.

Good luck,
