Will my undergrad school of choice affect me getting into a Top Tier B-School MBA programO
First things first, I graduated a few years back went to junior college and totally goofed off, not because the work was hard I actually found it rather insulting and too easy, I had MAJOR family issues (but I'm not making any excuses) I was just more concerned with making $ and having fun trying to cover up the pain I had from the things that was going on in my life at home, besides back then I really didn't have a clear picture of what I wanted to do however in that time frame I wasn't just waisting life away my work ethic and personality got me into 3 different Fortune 500 companies and most recently GE where I served in a Business Development role for GE Money, now I know I want to go into PE, because I goofed off back then I know I have to create an alternate transcript with a high GPA, and re-take the SAT before applying to any major university I understand that no problem I know I can get to 3.5-3.8 with ease, here's my concern. I don't know if I should go to junior college for the next year get the GPA and the scores I'm looking for then try to transfer to Emory as a Soph. and going into Junior year I can apply for their undergrad b-school and as long as I keep my grades up it will be a easy transition into their b-school MBA program which is well respected and most importantly is heavily recruited by any major company that I would like to work for, OR
If I can't get into Emory's undergrad b-school, I know for a fact that I will be able to transfer into FSU, not a bad school but lets face it their more known for football and their chics more so than academics! And literally only 1 major I-Bank that I would like to work for or intern for recruits there versus 8-10 firms that heavily recruit at Emory. If I have to complete undergrad at an FSU caliber school even if I have lets say a 3.5 GPA and a good GMAT will that affect me from getting into a top tier b-school MBA program???
