My profile is as follows:
- 58 months months work ex (just short of 5 years)
- 1.5 years general corporate law, 3 years specialist technology work (included a secondment with Facebook)
- Quit my job in January 2020 to prepare for GMAT full time and get into a full time MBA program. Left job at end of March after serving notice. Initial plan was to give GMAT in July after three months of focused prep. Due to various covid related circumstances I was quite distracted in my prep for the first attempt. Gave three attempts in August, November and December.
-Scored 640 (34v/44q), 650 (40v/40q) and 640 (35v/43q) in all the three attempts. The only saving grace was that my IR score went from 4 to 6 and finally 8. AWA was stable for the first two attempts at 6 and for some strange reason crashed to 4 in my latest attempt (I have no idea why)
- Currently unemployed and torn between taking effort to find another job in my profession (which I do not like) or try to apply to a few lower tier law schools for September.
- Applied to ESMT, Rotterdam, Ivey, SMU and WHU for the full time MBA program. Got rejected by all of them. No reasons given. SMU specifically said they liked my profile and took two rounds of interviews. They also specifically asked if they could push my application file to 2022 and that if I had a slightly higher GMAT I would have made it.
I want to understand what my options are. I am looking at Canada/Europe/UK/Australia and New Zealand.
My goal is to eventually start my own business, in food processing or waste recycling. Starting my business has always been a dream of mine, but I could not see myself become a law firm partner as I did not feel my job was contributing much to society. Therefore, I am looking for a supply chain or sustainability specialization.
I have seen a few posts here about Hult as taking in 'just about anyone'. Is Hult a money making machine for it's management or do they actually have a competent faculty and support system. Honestly, I am not looking for a brand name and a high rank. I know I can manage if I am given the right tools and facilities to achieve my goals.
I just don't want to do an MBA overseas (and take on significant debt() if the B School doesn't contribute anything apart from an MBA certificate.
Thank you in advance and Happy Holidays to all!.
