Title.

Little more context, if it might influence the answer in anyway.

I have no work experience, internships, or extracurriculars on my resume. As sad as it is, I was a full-time student basically giving it my all and the highest I could muster was a 3.46 GPA. Not bad, but far from phenomenal. Still, some of the school's I'm hoping to get into have a GPA cutoff where if your GPA is above 'X' GPA, you don't have to take the GMAT and I'm fortunate enough to be above that threshold.

I was wondering if it's wise to take the GMAT anyway to make up for the lack of job experience.

Hello Plasticzealot,

It all depends on your dreams and ambitions. If you plan to do it from a top-tier B-school, Work experience is mandatory which you're lacking at present. so considering an applicant with No work experience and No GMAT would certainly not get you an admit, unless you verify with a school that they accept applicants with a similar profile as yours.
MBA might not work-out for you while applying but you can try for MiM ( from top-tier B-school) which most of the schools accept on your profile but a GMAT is mandatory.

if you can take GMAT and get a score between 600-700 many options are there for you.

hope it helps. if you have any doubts do message me.

Give kudos if it was helpful for you. Thank you!

All the Best!
