Hi there,

Thanks for your post. So you don't really have any full-time post undergrad work experience if I'm following? Even if you've been working for quite some time, some schools may only 'count' the post-undergrad portion... but you may just have to explain your story and see what they advise; feel free to reach out and ask the schools now!! Certainly BU & UCI will be most within reach of your list; the 2.9 GPA will not help either. I feel it will be very very tough to get into UCLA. Given that your story is less traditional in terms of path of work/school, I do think checking in with the schools now is a good idea just in case they give any big picture suggestion i.e. wait another year or two... if not aim for the lower end of your list in terms of selectivity just for ideal chances and play up all the experience you do have... good luck, keep us posted!
