Hi, I'm currently a college senior at the most reputable business administration undergraduate program in Turkey (Bogazici University - formerly Robert College). I'm wondering if I'd still have a good shot at top MBA programs despite my full-time inexperience.
- 22 years old
- Gender/Nationality: Male - Turkish/German
- GMAT 750 Q:49 V:44, AWA 5, IR 6
- GPA: 3.7/4.0
- Target: Marketing/Innovation consultant, Entrepreneur
- Experience: Co-founder/entrepreneur (online career services, 6 months, cash out exit) ; Long Term Marketing Intern (part-time) Microsoft Turkey (currently 3 months, estimated total: 9 months)
- Languages: English/German/Turkish
- Extracurricular: Play 4 instruments, former member of semi-pro rock band, founder of a student driven gastronomy club

Thanks a lot!

While you have a chance at a traditional FT MBA program, I think your chances would be much better if you either:

1) work for a couple of years.
2) apply to a program like HBS 2+2, Stanford's deferred admissions program, or Yale Silver Scholars. These programs admit you and then you work for two years before coming back to do your MBA. Yale's program is slightly different.
3) You appplied to an MS in management program like that offered by Duke or London Business School.

Personally, if you really want to get going, I recommend #2 or #3.

If you would like help, please let me know.

Best,
Linda
