Deferred MBA Program
Most of the top business schools offer some sort of deferred admissions initiative where you are accepted to the school and have somewhere between 2-5 years to actually begin the program. I am determined to get an MBA somewhere down the line and believe this is a fair way to break in.
I know the deferred admissions program is aimed at STEM students as they wouldn't usually get an MBA down the line, but I see that over 20% of people who are accepted are Economics majors and pursuing careers in finance.
I'm a rising junior at a non-target school (I am also a straight asian male) who was fortunate enough to lock down a SA stint for next summer at a BB and have a fair amount of time on my hands now. Applications open for this deferred program in the first semester of senior year so I have a bit of time. I plan to start studying for the GMATs soon and am curious to hear if I have a shot at breaking into HBS, Wharton, or GSB given my non-target background (I have a good GPA and good extracurriculars and on-campus involvement).
Thank you in advance!
