thanks for the response..
UT AUstin does have a JUMPSTART program that it just started. It has tied up with a bunch of companies for specific jobs which will allow you to get job+direct admission to UT mccombs. Now, direct young applicants I can realise is possible. I personally dont know what to do next, but wnat to do B-School to see the options and gain credibility... this is not too good a reason to goto b-school i think-- would you agree?
Also, I am sure if and when i do take the gmat (another qn- when is good? i can graduate in dec 06 or may 07 and then go on to work someplace--+mba OR work+MS+work+mba OR MS+work+mba --
thanks for ideas/suggestions
Does UT Austin itself have a program that lets undergrads go right into b-school? I'm not sure, but I have heard that McCombs is friendly to young applicants. Harvard and Stanford are also known to be friendly to young applicants, but those are obviously tough for anyone.
