Welcome to the GMAT club! First of all, congrats on your decision to pursue an MBA. As far as work experience, grad business school applicants tend to be older and have leadership experience. While you're applying (from now to next year), try to take on more leadership roles and create a strong background. Focus on results rather than activities though. The quantity may not be as important as quality. When admission staff look at your work experience, they are most interested in full-time jobs. Summer internships and part-time work do not provide the kind of experience, responsibility, and accountability schools want.
Also looks like you're targeting the top 20 B's schools. You will have to have a high GMAT score, to get into your top school of choice. This forum has a lot of resources and study material that you can use to start your preparation. Most top B schools accept scores well above
I'd suggest starting giving a diagnostic test and see where you stand, identify your weaknesses, and go from there.
Good luck on your preparation!
Kudos if I helped
