Getting MBA to avoid current IB job market
I have spoken with countless people, including the advice of some on this forum that say go get your MBA; current job mkt for banking is glim.
Factors to consider:
1, I only want to go to Harvard or Wharton.
2, I come from a non-target school. Graduated with honors(because of an honors thesis, not GPA), 3.55 GPA
3, I have 6 months work experience at a BB back office.
4, I had my own business in college, maxxed revenue out at $10mm and sold it before I graduated.
My questions are:
1- Will my entrapeneurial background help my case for acceptance, since I will need all the help I can get with 6 months back office W/E?
2- How will I fare for MBA internships and FT offers since Ill have no IB work experience? Will I be offered less than my peers who have 2 year analyst programs under their belt?
3- Any opinion on admission consultants? Are they worth the money? What should one expect to spend/get-out-of on something like that?
