Why an M.B.A.?
I desire to go into consulting with interests in medical technology, management, and education. I want to lead the modernization effort of K12 classroom technology.
Wharton, HBS, Fuqua, Stanford, ect
I am considering taking a year or two off of my medical education to pursue my MBA in about 1.25 years. I was wondering what kinds of prospects I would have with the top schools. I am dedicated to doing well on the GMAT and recently scored 650 on a diagnostic test without any studying. I understand that I would be somewhat of an oddball applicant, but I am keeping my hopes up in respects to the fact that there is no such thing as a standard businessman, entrepreneur, or leader.
How would I go about creating a stronger application and what angle should I take to present myself appropriately to an admissions committee?
What you don't know CAN hurt you.
The goal is not to know one thing or another - the goal is to know as much as possible and to integrate it.
Always reach for the stars, the worst that can happen is that you end up on the moon.
