my chances.... [#permalink] New post 13 Nov 2005, 06:48
I am a final year undergraduate Electronic Engineering student at a prominent university in the UK with a GMAT of 720, AWA 5.0 . I've consistently been in the top 2% of my class and was a research intern at Siemens Corporate Research in the US this summer. I have a pretty good/varied extra curricular record- (National junior champion in a particular sport in a particular country, Captain/Member of three sports teams at school/university for several years, Chief Editor of the hall magazine and a stint on the student council as secretary). If it counts, I'm 21 and have spent my life in seven countries ( three years each !!) and am well versed in five languages. I'm keen on doing an MBA but would the lack of any work experience spell doom for my application or can I still be hopeful of an admit ? I'm planning on applying to a few MBA programs in the US,including the likes of Harvard and Stanford etc.
What do you think are my chances ?

Thanks a lot

I do think that you have a chance because of your interesting background (seven countries? cool!). The good news is that HBS and Stanford have been trying to attract younger applicants over the past several years.

But, it won't be easy to get in. The main question you will have you CONVINCINGLY answer is, "Why do you want an MBA now, and not 3-5 years from now?" If you can do that, you can get in. Otherwise, you'll probably want to wait.
