LSU MBA



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?

That's right around the average for LSU. You should be fine.

You won't get a GA job or anything, but you'll get in.

I'm assuming you hate your job/career path? If not you should stick it out for a couple more years.

Same for exactly all the above except 560 gmat. Really blew it on the math section of the test and don't have time to take it again. Worried about my chances.

Isn't the average around 650?

Hope you aren't a white male.

I have a 2.5 and never took the GMAT. I'm positive I'll get in when I decide to go. If I can get in, I'm sure you'll get in.

It is 606 according to their website and only 76 people in the class, how do you even network with that few of people?

How many years of experience?

If they are worried about your stats will look on their rankings and publications, they'll just ask you to go into the part time program. You may want to retake the GMAT.

re: LSU MBA


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.
