Chances of Getting in?

<p>Hey all. Quick question. I know that everyone has been posting a bunch of information on the chances of getting into a good MBA school with or without work experience. My current profile is this. I'm planning on graduating in a total of 2 years for undergrad and my anticipated final GPA at the rate that I'm going will be 3.82. I have yet to take the GMAT score and I don't have any work experience. I do participate in professional business oriented organizations and work within the business school at University of California, Riverside as a representative for future students. </p>

<p>Does the fact that I graduate in a short amount of time have any weight in the application? What kind of GMAT Score should I be aiming for if my anticipated GPA of 3.8 is accurate? The majority of "downtime" such as summer, is utilized for extra classes that either contribute to the Bachelor's degree or broaden my knowledge on the business fields. </p>

<p>So, what do you guys think? </p>

<p>Thanks in advance.</p>

<p>Why hurry through college? It will probably make you less attractive to top B schools. Not enough time for ledership positions, research, developing strong relationships with profs and no internships means you'll be less likely to get the prime job you'll need for several years after to score a top school.</p>

<p>What are your goals? Without knowing the answer to this question, the rest is somewhat pointless.</p>

<p>I'm trying to enter into the Joint Degree Program for JD/MBA students at one of the top schools such as Stanford, Harvard, Penn, etc etc. I'm planning on applying to all of them, and graduate by 2010 in the winter quarter at my school. I'll be working as a intern from the time I graduate around March until the Fall in which, hopefully, I'll be going to a graduate school.</p>

<p>There is no way you will get into the B school of any of thise schools at that point.</p>

<p>Do a search in this forum on work experience and MBA and you will see lots of discussions on this topic especially why you won't get into good schools with only one year of internship.</p>

<p>I'm sure you'll do quite fine with a law degree from any of those schools even if you don't get in a joint program. From what I've read, it seems that a JD/MBA may give you more options but is not likely to increase your salary.</p>
