Hi David,
Will my somewhat diverse background constitute an advantage with MBA programs seeking diversity, or is it a drawback that attests to lack of focus?

Hello,
I'm wondering should I invest efforts during my BA in finding a job that will offer me managerial experience? would it increase admission chances or do b-schools only consider full time jobs?
