I am graduating from one of HYPMS this year with a > 3.9 GPA. I workedin and am going to work at after graduation.
I am planning to work hard for the first couple years, find out what type of industry/job I would like to pursue in the long term, and go to b-school to build some network.
I don't really know much about how b-school admissions work - all I have heard is that working at MBB is seen favorably when applying to top b-schools. But my guess is that admissions to these top schools are still very competitive, and I am sure a ton of qualified candidates get turned by top b-schools.
I believe that there is no point in going to b-school if I can't get into top 3 (HBS, Stanford, Wharton are considered top 3?), so I really want to maximize my chance of getting accepted to one of these 3 schools. I was hoping someone could tell me more about what I could do in the couple years I spend at MBB to build up my credentials?
Thanks guys, and happy new year!
