Top MBA from unknown undergrad?

<p>I had extremely competitive stats in high school but I chose to go to a relatively unknown undergrad for the free tuition. My goal was law school and I was told that it doesn't matter where you go for undergrad, so it's best to go somewhere cheap.</p>

<p>However, now I'm having second thoughts and I'm kind of interested in a career on Wall Street or in business. I'm a Sophomore Economics major at the moment with a 3.9 GPA but my school is completely off the radar.</p>

<p>There's no way I could break into somewhere like Goldman Sachs out of my undergrad due to its lack of name recognition but I was told that a top MBA could get one into a good business/firm.</p>

<p>I'm able to get good grades and probably a competitive GMAT score but I'm afraid that I might not have the right work experience coming out of my college to be competitive for the top MBA programs. I'm not sure I can get that 2 year analyst job at a bulge bracket bank to impress the MBA admission boards, even with a near 4.0 GPA from my current school.</p>

<p>Any thoughts on traversing the path to a top MBA from an unknown school? Is it possible?</p>

<p>You should consider applying to HBS 2+2 in the next year. It is mostly about GPA, GMAT and leadership positions on campus. The rate of acceptance to that program is higher than the one of the regular MBA program.
You should also consider thatmany international students come from completely unknown companies and university all over the world and still get in top Business schools.</p>
