I would like to know my chances of getting into the following schools to pursue a MBA:
Yale University
University of Chicago
UNC-chapel hill
Michigan state University
Boston University

Here is my background:
Connecticut Resident
Rising senior @ Post University
major: Management
Concentrations: Sports
Minors: Information Systems, Accounting, and Mathematics
105 credits cgpa 3.39
24 credits major gpa 3.68

extracurricular: 3 year starter division II Soccer & baseball( co-captain for 2008 season), Vice President of student government(Senior class President for 2007-08), Accounting Society-Vice president, Resident Assistant for two years, and orientation Leader for 3 years.

I have 8 courses to take in this coming year which include: Calculus II, Calculus III, Seminar in MGT, Physics II, Systems MGT, World Civ I, World Civ II, and Principles of Sociology. My realistic goal is to raise my gpa to a 3.45 and my major gpa to a 3.75 before I graduate.

    Right now you have about a 0% chance of getting into Yale, Chicago, Columbia,Chicago, UNC, Georgetown.

    Get some good work experience. Around 3-5 years.

    Your school offers a math minor by just taking calc 1,2 and 3?
  • Dhawking919Dhawking919 Registered User Posts: 11 New Member
    nope you need 15 credits from mat 130 Pre Calculus and on.....

    I took Precal, Mat 220 Quantitative Analysis, Mat 220 Statistics I, and Mat 154 Calculus I, I just need Calc II to get the minor. Post U doesn't offer calculus III so I have to take it at the Community College down the street.
  • DukeAlum03DukeAlum03 Registered User Posts: 97 Junior Member
    That is the easiest math minor ever!
  • Dhawking919Dhawking919 Registered User Posts: 11 New Member
    yeah I know thats why I took advantage of it!

    0% at top schools. I've seen better resumes get rejected from the exact same schools.

    The problem is your GPA is low at a tier 4 school. It also seems like your course load is weak. If you get some good work experience you might have a chance at a top 50 school.
  • Dhawking919Dhawking919 Registered User Posts: 11 New Member
    so what your saying is that right now I have no shot at a top 50 school right out of undergrad?
  • Pat2323Pat2323 Registered User Posts: 635 Member
    Definately no chance at the schools you have listed.
  • Dhawking919Dhawking919 Registered User Posts: 11 New Member
    well do you think I would have a chance at Quinnipiac or Boston University?

    Get some work experience. You have a solid GMAT and OK GPA. With success at a good job you'll get a much better MBA than you could now.
  • roto56roto56 Registered User Posts: 31 Junior Member
    with no work experience you'll not get into any decent mba program.

    I graduated from Post back when it was Teikyo Post University in 2003. I had a 3.566 and my Gmat was around a 600 but I also had an internship my senior year. I was accepted to every Grad school I applied to and ended up going to UT Austin. In 2006, I graduated with an MBA from the Prestigious McCombs School of Business. It seems to me that your on the track to become a sports agent. I think you have a good shot at getting into BU, UNC, MSU, and UC but Yale and Columbia might be a bit of a reach. BTW don't give into the hype, I know a lot of people who graduated from TPU and have or are working on receiving their MBA from a tier 1 school.

    You have no shot at those schools right now. Go get solid work experience for a few years.
  • DawgieDawgie Registered User Posts: 1,576 Senior Member
    Am I missing something? Are you planning on getting an MBA as soon as you graduate from undergrad?
