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:
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)
You're right; there must be students with no work experience that get directly admitted into a top b-school, but understand that that is an exception to the rule. Generally speaking, person without work experience is not gaining admission to top b-school. One thing you have to think about is when companies recruit on campus, they'll inevitably ask "what did you do before business school?" Everyone will have a good answer to that, whether it be brand management, marketing, consulting, banking, clean-tech, whatever, and you'll stand there and talk about internships. It simply won't cut it. You need to have a good reason to tell the recruiters why you're better than the next person who came from a good school, with good grades and work experience. This same mentality translates to business school admissions process. Without a logical explanation, b-school admissions won't take a chance to admitting you when the next person has everything you have, but with real work experience.
