No work exp. [#permalink] New post 23 Sep 2011, 06:53
1) I have virtually no work exp. Total 3 months undergrad internship. (one is at the national science corp. of Turkey, one is at a small firm in Germany)
However i am now working as a student-employee at a startup company in my university while doing my Msc. for 8 months now and will be working until i graduate this summer (i completed my courses so i will be doing this for full time. the project we are doing will also be my thesis hopefully)
2) gmat 730 (51,36) toefl 105
3) istanbul tech uni. (one of the most reputable in my country) electronics eng. 3.32 GPA. 2010(-i ranked around 10th or something among 90-100 graduates)
i was an exchange student in Germany Tech. Uni Braunschweig for 6 months (only passed one course)
Bogazici uni (also another highly reputaded school) masters biomedical eng. 3.91 GPA (will graduate 2012 summer)

4) cant say anything highly impressible. simple uni. club memberships (dance,music,international student network)
i play drums, dance (tango-salsa), windsurf, kitesurf (each at above amateur level). now i think these are more like hobbies. so a quick question what can i do to improve myself?
5) don't even know what these are
6) Full time MBA, definitaly in CA area, my targets are SDSU, UCSD (plus your recommendations)
7) Want to work in a biomedical company, engineering managment positions, (i heard that biomedical firms are mainly located around san diego CA .correct me if im wrong)

i am 23 years old. i am aware that i lack of work experience. however i know that there are people attended some programs with even less exp. (directly after undergrad). so i am keeping it real (no stanford or harvard =) a)

Hi Ardav,

Since you seem to prefer attending an MBA now rather than waiting for more substantial work experience, you should play up what you CAN offer, not what you can’t. You have a fantastic GMAT score so you can prove you’ll be ready for the coursework, and you can certainly count your internships as work experience. Share what you learned in this work that is directly applicable to your post-MBA goals and emphasize why it’s important for you to get an MBA now, rather than waiting a few years. In addition to the school you list, perhaps look at UC Davis and maybe UCLA as a reach.

Best of luck,
Brian
