I am planning to apply for UT Austin for Fall 08 and as per the requirements, the required experience is 5 years. I am working as financial analyst in a civil engineering firm and will have full time work experience of 2.5 year. please advise on the possibilities of my application being reviewed or getting through. Thanks.

I don't think anyone here can answer this question. You will have to contact the school to check their policy (and any possible exemptions).

The MBA program has a work experience requirement of 5 years? I doubt it. I bet that's the average work experience for students there. You can apply with 2.5 years if your experience is strong.

Thanks for all the responses. I should have made myself clear. Actually I am planning to apply for Executive MBA as its on weekends.
And for that it requires 5 years of experience.

I'm not familiar with that particular program but ..... Well.... theres a reason they call the programs an *executive* MBA... If you don't have 5 years experience, and you are a financial analyst, I doubt they'd admit you.

They are looking for people established in their fields, many executive MBA programs care more about your work experience than anything else (Kellogg for instance waives the GMAT altogether).... they are looking for people who will go on to hire their full time grads, not people who will want to recruit alongside them.....

I admit however I'm not familiar with that particular program.
