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.

Target Schools
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?

-Thank you
