Just got rejected by Terry College of Business. Feeling really low :cry:

However, I have got a score of 740 and will try next year too. I guess the fact that I have currently just about 1 year's experience counted against me.


Can you give me a list of B schools who have a liking for young students who might not have many years ( >3) of work experience?

Thanks in advance!

Feel free to get in touch if you feel I can be of some assistance to you. You can find me in Facebook if you search!

Consider giving me some kudos if you like my post

I think your best bet is to hold off until you have at minimum 2 full years. The only schools that encourage those with fewer than 2-3 years are Harvard and Stanford. Some schools, such as Vanderbilt's Owen School, have 20% of their class full of people with between 2-3 years I believe. The younger you are, the more you need to have stellar extracurriculars, a solid undergrad GPA from a top school, and you need to prove that you have something to offer to your fellow classmates at the graduate level. The high GMAT will only take you so far in this process.

Wait, beef up your resume over the next 2 years, and apply again.
