Hi - First time poster here, looking to gain some of the wisdom you are willing to share about MBA admissions.

My Story:
Age: 24
UGPA: 3.65; B.S. in Finance (finance honors program); large private university (not particularly prestigious)
GMAT: 740
Ethnicity: Mixed - half asian, half mexican (does this have any bearing?)
W/E:
2 years - launched and now running a social enterprise; managing a team of 6 directors; currently establishing a non-profit segment
4 years - Army Reserves; last 2 years as a commissioned officer - platoon leader within a financial role; no deployments yet
UG Involvement: Army ROTC, financial internships at Morgan Stanley and the FDIC, VP of business fraternity chapter, investment club, scuba club, violinist in school orchestra, several other part-time jobs and awards

My Goals:
-I want to pursue a JD/MBA program; currently accepted to NYU law school for the fall (LSAT: 172). Other law schools in possible consideration for the near future are Columbia, Chicago, Penn, and Northwestern.
-Will apply to an MBA program during my 1L year.

I was wondering what you all think my chances are specifically at MBA programs such as Stern, Booth, Wharton, Columbia, and Kellogg. The lack of work experience is my main concern, and I am not sure how entrepreneurship and military experience is valued by these top schools relative to my peers. Thanks in advance!

I think you would be a competitive applicant at these programs. Entrepreneurship and military experience are both valued. The question in my mind is how the schools would view the feasibility of your goals in light of your past experience and JD/MBA. If they view your goals as achievable, then I think you would be an attractive candidate.

Best,
Linda
