Hi there,

So, I just found out about Duke's MMS (and this kind of degree in general, at LSE and LBS), and decided that I want to apply for May.

Here's my profile, as background: Ivy '09, French major, 3.46, less than a year of work experience and internship + international teaching program the rest of the time (less prestigious than the Fulbright). I've also taken post-bac courses in econ.

1) What are my chances for Duke? What about LBS? They seem like reaches, but it woudn't HURT to apply, correct?

2) If I were to apply to these programs next year, I would have close to two years of actual 'work' experience (excluding the teaching program), and would be 26. These numbers sound worse than my current situation. Advice?

3) If I DO apply now, how should I go about focusing time/energy on studying for the GMAT for the first time AND doing my apps? (currently work full-time)

Thanks a ton.
