Hello there, I was browsing around and I did not see anything pertaining to undergraduate studies, specifally what I should do if I desire to go on further in my education(MBA). I was wondering if there as any tips you could give me. Whether it be study, or do more volunteer work. I look forward to your response and again I apologize I just did not see any place, or any forum that applies to my needs. Thank you for your time. :-D

I think the best advice at this point is to enjoy the rest of your undergrad years. Continue your volunteer activities, get involved in any campus groups that interest you, try to take on leadership roles if possible. When you graduate, find a job you enjoy doing, since it's much easier to excel when you enjoy what you're doing than if you dread going to work in the morning. Stay involved in the community. In short, live your life as though it's not all part of the master plan to get an MBA. There's no "right" path to getting an MBA, so you need to find the path that's right for you. You can see in this thread the variety of paths people here took to getting an MBA:

A collection of most of the ideas given by others, to summarize-

1) Good Academics
2) Participation in extracurricular Activities - volunteering (like you do), starting volunteering group in University. Colleges are breeding ground for ideas and energy, try to leverage it by forming community groups and help the causes that matter to locals. Active involvement in everything that interests you even if you are leading all or most.
3) Working with professors to organize university events, research talks. Reaching out to people on LinkedIn or other places and arranging range speakers in Academics/extracurricular activities. Even calling a person who travels and makes a living out of travelling kind of speaker is also a proactive leadership example. Profs will remember you when you go for recommendation.
4) Getting into a job that you are passionate and continuing to volunteer in Employee engagement and CSR( Corporate Social Responsibility) activities etc, these get you good visibility at work and recommendation letter from MD/CEO would surely add value.
5) Preparing for your GMAT - There is loads of materials/information on this, however a good GMAT prep company that will focus on you as person and help you build your profile in important. However this can wait while you are at work on above 4!!!!

Just live it out every moment, lead and contribute in any way you can at every level :)
