I am trying to build my profile early for MBA applications. There is no doubt in my mind that I will be applying after gaining 3 or 4 years of experience. Prior to applying, I would like to do something off the beaten path such as a non-profit in a low income country.
To clarify, because I know this will come up, I would not be doing this simply for the sake of improving my b-school application. This has always been something I have wanted to do, and I know if I don’t do it prior to B-school and while I am young, then it will never happen. Can anyone speak to such experiences? Any recommendations about specific programs and details about your experience would be incredibly helpful.
I am a recent graduate working for a nichey, buy-side PE fund in NYC. I volunteer with a Big Brother, Big Sister program and am getting more involved within the program in addition to simply mentoring. I graduated from a top state UG b-school with a lower3.3-3.4 and am currently scoring between 700 and 740 on Kaplan CATs. With all that being said, where should my expectations be regarding the m7 schools?
