Hello,

I am a 21 year old college senior with very little idea of where I stand in the realm of MBA programs and my realistic possibilities.

Profile-

College Senior in Oklahoma, Native American who is involved with tribal events, planning to apply to the Consortium even though it is probably a long shot.

GMAT- 720 (Q 48, V 41) AWA- 6.0 Integrated Reasoning- 8

Undergrad- Management/Entrepreneurship Double Major, 3.30 GPA from a mid-level state school

Experience- No full-time work experience, part-time work every summer (nothing prestigious, just typical college kid jobs), work during school the past year in the school's Professional Development office, which has provided me with more real world applicable skills than a normal student job, but still a part-time student job nonetheless.

Extracurriculars- Very involved at school, member of a number of major related clubs, including more selective organizations who have the opportunity to represent the school and work with faculty, also involved in other clubs, very involved in my fraternity

Significant volunteer experience in a number of different areas (YMCA, reading at schools, special needs work, work with elderly, Humane Society, camps, etc.), over 700 hours total in just over 3 years so far in college

I know that having no work experience is a big drawback, but I don't know whether my strong GMAT score, average GPA, and good extracurricular involvement are enough to make up for that. I just need some advice on what level in the MBA rankings I can/should realistically target, and which, if any, schools weigh work experience less heavily that I could possibly be a more attractive candidate for. Also, does being Native American provide me any advantage in this process and how much should I work that aspect of myself in to applications? Thanks for any advice you can give.

Hi there -
Thanks for reaching out for a free evaluation. In lieu of writing a lengthy reply, I'd rather we connect via Skype/phone so we may have a real dialogue and you can ask me questions as I give you an assessment. Additionally, I will be able to offer you a much more robust assessment if I am able to ask you more questions. If doing a free consult via skype/phone interests you, please contact me directly at kathrynlucas@squareoneprep.com.

I look forward to hearing from and speaking with you soon. Thanks again for reaching out.
