The reason I'm asking this question is because I messed up a little bit in my undergrad and am behind my peers who have for the most part graduated and are working full-time. I'm 22 years old and finishing up my last semester at community college for an associates degree. I'm applying for a few undergraduate programs to transfer into this Fall, but it would be about 4 full semesters before I could graduate with a bachelors.
I'm wondering what the chances are that I could get into a good/decent b-school (top 30 or 40) without earning a bachelor's first. I've worked the past 6 years at a web design company, generally on a part-time basis. I've had a number of internships, incl. one with the wealth management division at Merrill Lynch, as well as intenrships with 3 or 4 web design firms, and maybe 4 or 5 volunteer experiences.
I'm studying to take either/both the GMAT and/or GRE at the end of the year. I did pretty well on the SAT I's a few years back (1480/1600, or 2180/2400) and am pretty confident that I could do well on the GMAT and/or GRE with ample studying.
I know there are a lot of variables that come into play when applying to b-school, or any grad school. Most of the b-schools I've looked at require "A bachelor's degree, or equivalent" and im just trying to find out what might be able to substitute for a bachelors.
