Hi pranjal549,

Thank you for your post. But I don't quite follow your question or description. Are you now headed to Cambridge for a one-year master's degree in corporate law? When would you plan to pursue an MBA? Have you taken the GMAT?

Thanks,
Greg

Hi Greg!

Hope you're well. I apologize for not being outrightly clear. Yes, I shall be going to Cambridge this October and would be done with my masters by June 2019. I intend to join any of the decent B-schools post that (maybe September intake).

I am afraid, I have not yet taken GMAT.

Thank you, pranjal549. Students at most leading MBA programs in the U.S. average five years of full-time pre-MBA work experience and around 28 years of age. These factors can even trend slightly higher in Europe. Given that you're just coming out of undergraduate in 2018 and then pursuing another one-year degree to end in 2019, applying right away to MBA programs will be a few years premature. You will need to build full-time post-college work experience, get involved and have impact in your community / outside the work place, and develop your career goals and rationale for pursuing an MBA.

On top of that, I don't currently see an organic path for you toward an MBA. If you've just devoted five or six years to becoming a lawyer, and you're now devoting another year in law, why the sudden desire to pursue an MBA? Lawyers sometimes apply to business school, but it's usually after they've worked for a few years and have developed a sensible idea of how their legal background plus the MBA will lead to their career goals. I encourage you to continue to evaluate all of that and launch a successful career. The time will come to revisit whether you want to apply to MBA programs in due time. I wish you the best of luck!

Thanks,
Greg
