Where Should i apply?

Post Sat Jul 08, 2017 8:07 pm
Hi all,
I am currently an undergrad student at the University of Cincinnati. I have just begun studying for the GMAT exam, which I intend to take this September. I will be graduating undergrad Spring 2018, and want to attend graduate school Fall 2018. I will graduate with a 3.8 GPA, and I am completing my undergrad in a total of 3 years. I have had leadership positions throughout college and 2 internships. When I take practice GMAT tests without studying, I receive low 500s. Hopefully after studying this summer I can obtain a score in the 600s.

My question is, what are my options for schools? My dream schools are UCLA, University of Miami, University of San Diego, University of Florida.

Hey there,
Well normally if you intend to pursue an MBA, it's a good idea to work 3 years or more beforehand. So I think it might be a biiiit early for you start considering what schools you might apply to.

Of course it's a great idea to get as good a GMAT score as you can early on, so keep on doing that.

If you have any other questions, don't hesitate to write!
Best,
Jon

Hi Sara,

Why are you looking to do a post grad right away ? Wouldn't it be better to work for a couple of years and then pursue higher education ?
