Undergraduate Senior in Electrical Engineering-- Advice? [#permalink] New post 08 Jul 2011, 13:10
I'm currently a senior majoring in electrical engineering (3.81 GPA) at a large private university. Over the past couple of years I have realized that I really want to pursue an MBA. I haven't taken the GMAT yet, but anticipate a score in the 750+ range, based on my practice CATs so far. I already plan on applying to the Harvard 2+2 program this fall, but I'm not really sure which top-15 programs are open to accepting current seniors. If I can get in, I would prefer to get my MBA right out of undergrad, but if I get dinged I'm alright with working for a few years and trying again. So, which programs would you recommend I apply to?

You realize that the 2+2 doesn't mean you get to go straight to b-school right after college? It's deferred admission - you have to work for 2 years full-time before matriculating.

Don't go straight to b-school. MBA recruiters care about work experience. You'll be a child amongst adults in b-school if you don't have work experience (and you may not even be aware of it, but others will).

Work for a few years before applying.

Yes, I was aware that the 2+2 program is deferred admission, I've looked into it a good bit. Are there any other programs similar to the 2+2 program for any of the top-15/20 schools?
