Hello all,

I decided that I would like to pursue my MBA right after my undergrad (bachelors: business administration) because there is no better time than the present and I am not sure that I would go back later in life. I was wondering what schools you think I would have a chance at given my profile.
I will be 21 years old when I graduate. I went to a Community College and my GPA is around a 3.85 then I transferred to an AACSB accredited University where my GPA is around a 3.9. I perform some community service activities and am president of the school SHRM chapter. I have not taken the GMAT yet, but I plan on studying for the test a few months in advance and I am a relatively good test taker. So I am shooting for at least a 650 plus. I am going to apply to Rutgers-Camden, Rutgers-Newark, and Temple due to geographic location. Do these schools generally admit younger applicants and if not what schools do? If you need any more information about me please don’t hesitate to ask.

Thank you for taking out the time to help me, it’s much appreciated.

I think that you should have a decent shot with these schools, especially if you can achieve a 650 on the GMAT. I know that Rutgers in particular is open to younger applicants (less than two years of experience), so you should have a good shot.

The key will be to adequately answer the question of, "Why do you need an MBA *now*, rather than 3-5 years from now?" Really think that one through. Also, make sure to play up your leadership experiences up to this point in your life. Since you won't have many on-the-job ones, you'll need to draw from your other experiences. It sounds like you have some, which is good. Use them!
