TFA --> Bschool [#permalink] New post 24 Apr 2012, 13:41
I will be matriculating after my 2 year commitment with Teach For America ends. I have a 700 gmat and 3.5 gpa. Graduated in 2011 from a state university in the south. Excellent leadership in college (president of a large org) and involved in the community now (big brothers/big sisters). I also started an sat prep program at my school and have some solid student achievement data. I want to go to business school now to develop a better fundamental understanding of business concepts that I felt my undergrad education lacked. I am interested in UNC, Darden and Duke. Are these realistic? Thanks.

If you can show that you gained significant leadership during university, then there is a possibility that you can earn admission to these programs but you would need to be able to demonstrate that you have a career focus and have prepared for that focus during school or TFA. If you have not yet started on that career path, you may be better off applying to master of science in management programs. These are 1-year programs for people with little or no professional experience who are seeking a grounding in business before they start their careers. Duke has a relatively new program, and UVA McIntire and Rochester Simon are great options too. If you're willing to go abroad, you have many more choices, ranked here by the Financial Times.
