Thank you for using the timer!
We noticed you are actually not timing your practice. Click the START button first next time you use the timer.
There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:
I am 26 with 4 years of work experience. However I have spent my last 2 year starting an Internet startup, which is not venture capital funded and not successful at all. I have been thinking on ending the startup and work full time again. However, given my profile I think it's pretty hard to get the job I wanted, a job at a recongized consulting firm. So I think doing a MBA may help me get a fresh start on my career.
Yet I think it may be very hard for me to get into a Top MBA program given I only have 2 year working experience. I have spent half year working as an IBM sales trainee, and around 1.5 as a IBM strategy & change consultant. The most important thing is I have already lost contact with my previous bosses at IBM, it is quite awkward for me to ask them to write a reference letter. I think they liked me as they said they would offer me to return to IBM if my startup failed. (I don't want to return as a loser anyway!)
I guess I can achieve a GMAT score around 700-740. Actually I am even more interested in doing a PhD in business than doing a MBA, but given my research experience I know no PhD program will accept me so I probably will have to do a MBA/Master first anyway.
If you were me, will you suggest me to work for a few years, or apply to MBA right away?
