Hi everyone,

Not sure if this is the right forum for it but does anybody know how the finance MBA schools like Stern, Booth, or Wharton view volunteer work? Giving myself a year to beef up my resume some more and I thought this could do the trick.

Thanks!

all schools love it! add it if you can, and a word of advice...pick something you actually like not the something for impact value. Best of luck!

It's very positive - just focus on quality or quantity. Adcoms will be much more impressed with you giving a significant time commitment to 2-3 activities over spreading yourself thin over 5+.
