I'm only in my last year of college, but I'm pretty sure I want to get an MBA. I know I need work experience before an MBA program. I'm a black male and will graduate with a BA in Economics with a minor in Global Culture & Commerce from UVA with a 3.1-3.2 GPA. My major GPA is around a 3.0 as well. I had a huge upward trend in my GPA, with a 2.5 gpa my first year of school and Dean's list my last two semesters. I have good grades in my Quantitative classes and upper level Econ classes as well.

My last year of college I will be a Loan Officer for undergraduate and graduate students at UVA as well for emergency loans of upto $600, and manage a $100,000 fund.

I am also working for a social networking site that I plan on working with after graduation with whatever work experience I have after college.

If I can get some good work experience (I haven't graduated yet) and can get a 700 on the GMAT, what do you think my chances are at the following schools?

1.Darden
2.Michigan
3.Chicago
4.Kellogg
5.Duke
6.NYU
7.Columbia
8.Wharton
9.Harvard
10.Dartmouth

There are not enough chapters written yet to know whether your book is good enough to get published.

You seem to have a promising Act One, but it's hard to "assume" the rest of the story will be good. Of course if the book is good, it has a decent shot of getting published, but that's assuming your book is good.

It's kind of like a high school junior (who has yet to be recruited or yet to commit to a D-1 college) asking whether he has a shot of getting drafted into the NFL out of college (and making the assumption that he'll have a great college career).
