My application to Carlson School of Management [#permalink]
10 Feb 2005, 08:49
I am 21 years old and am graduating this spring with a BS in Computer Science.
I also own a small business, 3+ years old.
I decided early that I wanted to go to business school and I believe Carlson is the best in my area.
The applications process, in retrospect, was pretty easy. I had to have an admissions interview, which was very nice. I was not stressed out and the interview went great. I had my interview with the Director of Admissions.
The GMAT was the most stressful for me, I had to take it twice, first 530, second 680. Whefta!
I think my biggest liability when applying was that I was only 21 years old. The stats show that less than 5% of Carlson students are under 22, and less than 5% have 0-2 years of Fulltime business experience. While I have been running my own business, it has not been 'fulltime'.
Because I had to get my last Fall transcript to apply, I couldn't make the first round. I made the second round and my application was reviewed VERY promptly. I applied in the last week of January, and had an acceptance by February 9th.
Overall, it's been a great experience!
