    The top MBA programs want to see 2-3 years of work experience in a top business on your application. Very few students are accepted straight out of undergrad.

    You do not have work experience for a good MBA program -- I'd look into 1 year MiMs / Finance programs at Duke, Virginia, Vanderbilt, Northwestern, etc

    Honestly your post is a bit confusing you talk about working after graduating but also about getting a masters in biomedical info sys, then you also talk about an MBA.
