I think more info is needed:
Have you taken the GMAT yet? Or a practice test? Where do you expect your score to be?
Also, you stated that you have work experience, but what kind? What has been your career progression?
I'm not sure what other info the admission gurus need in order to give you a proper answer...
Thanks for the reply. I have not taken the GMAT yet, I was just looking for a gauge on whether I should start preparing for the GMAT or not. I have no worries about my math, don't get me wrong though, I will study it and make sure I'm on top of all the subjects. My problem is and has always been grammar and vocabulary. I got a 740 math and a 410 on verbal on the SAT but that was 9 years ago.
As for my work experience. The first two years out of college I worked in Prudhoe Bay on an oil field as a project controller/financial analyst. Then I spent a year as a junior project manager in which I started building our project controls systems. I spent the last two years as project controls/scheduler in which we used my project controls system to run/manage our projects. It's a multi-billion dollar corporation and the largest native owned corporation in the nation.
I've developed plenty of high profile oil & gas contacts and I've pretty much been pure oil for the past 5 years. My employer has shown interest in me getting my MBA, but only if it is a top program. So I'm just looking for someone with more knowledge on the subject to kind of judge me on whether I should even attempt to try to get admitted in to a top tier school.
Let me know if you have any other questions and I will gladly answer them. Thanks again for the reply!
