LSU MBA(Posted by blackjames on 4/1/14 at 10:15 pm)
I've applied to the MBA program, 610 GMAT, 3.5 GPA, one year of full-time work experience. LSU for undergrad. Been getting a lot of mixed signals about what's the average GMAT and GPA. Anybody got any insight?
Are you going in straight from undergrad? I'd recommend going get some real world experience and then going back after 3-5 years of working.
Going straight into a MBA after undergrad doesn't add a whole lot of value to your career (unless its a top program). The full time program at LSU (and most schools) has a lot of BS with it as they try to "prepare you for the business world" that you wouldn't have to deal with in the Professional/Executive Programs.
Just my opinion.
Also, if you get on with a decent company they will pay for some (or all) of your graduate degree.
