Fit the Profile for MiM?  [#permalink]

Hi there,

I graduated in 2017 with a high 2.1 (GPA of ~3.7) in Environmental Science from a Russell Group university.

I plan to apply for 2019 entry, having spent this year working for a fairly large tech firm. I also spent around 9 months working as a teaching assistant prior to university (gap year). This would make me 25 upon entry, which I know is in the upper end of most cohorts.

My extracurriculars are diverse - societies/ events at uni, advising a national charity, helping to start a social enterprise, and a consulting project.

The main concern is whether I've 'missed the boat' for a MiM given my age. I feel I fit a MiM as opposed to an MBA (in a few years) due to my lack of corporate experience.

Thanks for any help!

You don't need to worry about having 'missed the boat'. With the rising popularity of MiM due to it being a cheaper and attractive alternative to MBA, most people are applying with 2-3 years experience thus increasing the average age of the class.

I myself plan to apply for 2019 entry and will also be almost 25 when joining the course.

So don't worry about the age factor and research the schools well if they cater to your needs.

Hey LFutura,

Your age does not matter, what matters is how much work experience do you have. You have graduated in 2017 so, I believe you have almost 1.5 years of work experience. With that, you can apply to any MiM schools and none of them would have any issues. What you need to focus is, on your profile.

Your GPA is pretty good, and you have good extracurriculars. You need to showcase them properly in your essays. Connect them via words to why you took up teaching assistance role, what are internships you have done and how they connect with what you want to do in future.

Do this it will help you for sure.
