Hey all
So im prepping for my GMAT. Hofstra B school is the school i am aiming for. I am a Puerto Rican applicant with a 3.31 overall GPA. My gmat score will probably be between 550 and 600 (hopefully higher)

Will the lack of work experience matter that much?

Your GMAT appears to be competitive at that school but the average work experience is 60 months according to the profile on entrepreneur.com.

I think the lower ranked programs are much more flexible about this requirement, but the averages are what they are. Frankly, even if you got admitted your exit opportunities would likely be limited by your lack of WE. Why not work for a couple of years, gain some experience, then see what happens?

Why not just do law? Much higher incidence of direct applicants in law. If you want to be a lawyer, you don't need an MBA, nor is at seen as "plus" (or minus) by biglaw.
