Which schools give weightage to Social/Community service ? [#permalink] New post 02 Nov 2009, 08:45
Hi All,

Am a prospective applicant for the 2nd round of b-school admissions.

I have done lot of social/community service and infact one of my LOR will be coming from a zonal coordinator of a established social service organization.

I intend to know which schools in the US give preference to applicants who project considerable amount of social service?

Having said this, I am working in the IT industry for the past 4.5 years with a reputed company.


Thanks for your time and advice.

All the top programs value community service. I would pay more attention to what you want to do post MBA and which programs have better recruiting/placement in those areas to show fit.

Best,
Linda
