Please evaluate my chances at the top 10 schools (Full time MBA programs), specifically at Sloan, HBS, and Tuck (and possibly HBS 2+2). I am also looking at Yale's SOM Silver Scholars program, and was wondering if anyone knew anything specific about that, and perhaps how competitive I would be in that program.

Age - 19 (20 at matriculation)
Gender - Female
Nationality - Russian/US

Education/GPA: Double Major Business Economics/Communications at top 10 public university GPA 3.5

-youngest in class of 2010, completing the bachelor's program in two years total, finishing in August 2010

GMAT - 740 (49Q, 41V)

Looking to matriculate in the fall of 2010

Work Experience - No full time work experience, but a few internships

Extracurricular activities: community service, volunteer work, tutoring, coaching


1. Will my lack of work experience kill my chances at the top schools?

2. Is my young age a huge disadvantage? What would be the best way to address this issue in the application?

3. Is it even worth it for me to apply at this point?

Thank you for your feedback!

Why are you in such a rush to do an MBA?

Your chances are slim, and moreover, you'll have a hard time competing against your more experienced classmates for jobs.

It is in your best interest to work for a few years. You are very young, so you might as well take advantage of that and gain some real world experience rather than rushing into school where you will be significantly younger than your classmates and no matter how mature you think you may be, you will be a bit out of place socially (and a big part of b-school is building relationships with your fellow classmates).
