When I met Julien, he was a very young bright student having a year of work experience and wanted to apply to top B-Schools like Stanford, Wharton, etc. I suggested he apply for the GMAT first and then work on his application.
He needed the right assistance and a strong lead as he was just 20 with a year of experience. He had decided that he would go for an MBA at the age of 24 to boost his career the way he wanted.
So Julien worked on his GMAT score, and after a few months of classes, he successfully got a GMAT score of 770 and started working on his application. He also needed to work on the skills and extra curriculum because of his lack of work experience. Julien was targeting to go to Wharton, Columbia, and Chicago Booth.
He finally got his acceptance letters from Wharton and Chicago Booth. Though Wharton is the top B-School, Julien chose Chicago Booth as it was more suitable for him.
For him, the GMAT score was the game-changer. This experience is the best example for all young students who don't have much work experience and want to boost their careers early on. You need a perfect strategy to balance this out and make it to your dream school no matter what!
