I am just about to come out of my undergraduate studies, but I am very serious about my education and what I want to do with it. Please help me finding a school or give me some recommendations, I would greatly appreciate it.

21 year old, Chinese, Female, originally from Hong Kong
-undergraduate overall GPA: 3.4
-English Major GPA: 3.5
-Chinese Minor GPA: 3.6
-will be graduating in Dec 2005; which means I finished my four year degree within 3 years.
-Languages: Cantonese (Native Tongue), English (Fluent), Mandarin (Intermediate, which I took throughout my whole college career), French (Basic, i took 3 years of it in highschool)

2002-2004: recipient of Earl and Hazel Endowement Scholarship at University of Nevada, Las Vegas
2002-2005: recipient of Millenium Scholarship at University of Nevada Las Vegas
2004-2005: On Dean's List for Honor Roll

Work experience:
I have worked full-time/part-time ever since I was 16 until even now.
So i am not sure if my work-experience will be considered. I have always worked in high-end retail industry such as For Joseph, Christian Dior, Coach, etc as either sales or cashier/customer service representative. Since I am in Las Vegas, I am always constantly dealing with people from all over the world.

GMAT: I anticipate to take my GMAT during the end of September, hopefully being about to shoot for 660+.

Aspiration: since I have previous experience in high-end luxury brand retail, I have always been interested in working for a luxury brand corporation, or being a management consult for an interntional luxury company. Eventually, I hope to become a CEO or have my own company.

because I am still young, but yet I dont want to wait to apply just because of my work experience or my age since I have already worked through my college career, is it possible that you can recommend some schools within the US or internationally that I have a good chance of acceptance and with good career placement. I am looking to work internationally or within the US after the MBA. I greatly appreciate your help.

Take a look at this article. It profiles some good schools that accept people right out of undergrad: ... exper.html

I know that Stanford and HBS are also making a push these days to get younger applicants.

I would urge you to get several years' worth of work experience, though. I didn't want to wait, either, but I was glad that I did. I think that I got a lot more out of the experience by being a little more mature and more experienced. But, it's up to you!
