So, I'm currently a medical student at a top 20 medical school and am thinking about getting an MBA. My primary goal is to eventually go into hospital management or healthcare consulting.
24 yo male
STEM major @ Ivy undergrad, 3.5 GPA
95th percentile MCAT
I have a couple questions:
1. My home institution's MBA program is not as strong, so I would be looking to apply externally. What are my chances at H/S/W? How about M7 schools in general? If I get a 750+ GMAT, would I be able to mitigate my relatively low GPA?
- Are my chances best to apply to b-school during medical school or during residency? I have heard that work experience is fairly important, but at the same time it seems like age is pretty important too. If I apply during or after residency, I would have some work experience, but I would be 30-32 years old. Would it be better to wait until after residency to apply to b-school, or should I apply during medical school?
