Hi. I am a undergrad about to graduate in May 2010. I am applying for a full-time MBA program in the USA right now, hoping to get in Fall 2010. Here are my stats:

GMAT: 650
GPA: 3.7
Work experience: 0, but have tons of summer internships with great recommendations
Extracurriculars: VP and secretary of various school clubs
Background: International student born in HK, attended SUNY in USA

Do I have a shot at the Ivys? I am applying to Columbia ED, do you think I have a chance?

Thanks!

alice912,

Many U.S. schools are admitting larger percentages of students with no or little working experience (3% of Columbia's entering class usually has 1 year or less of work experience). Usually, the ones admitted are really remarkable people, especially at the top schools like CBS. You seem to have some things going for you but your GMAT score is not very strong. Also, your undergrad institution is not a super-strong one, which may also be a minor negative factor. Finally, all schools will expect young applicants like you to state compelling reasons for wanting the MBA now. See this Accepted.com article on younger applicants for more advice.

Hope this helps,
