How young are you? I don’t think you’ll fully realize the value of an MBA without having lived in the “real world” first

This is a good time to study for and take the GMAT. If you're actually just graduating you should wait 3-4 years before you apply. Even if you get into a T15 school the jobs you want post MBA won't take you seriously if your only experience is a 1 year internship.

Yeah ^. Nows ur time to bust ur ass on the gmat and get a high score u can use in 3-4 years when u apply. No top 15 school will let u in with no work experience. U wanna take ur gmat now because, and trust me, it’s hard to take it seriously while working...

I get that SC1, but I don’t think I’ll want to go back once I’m fully in the working world. Would the initial loss impact the ROI long term?

I tink you'll lose a lot of value if you go now, and I think it will effect the schools you get into + your recruiting efforts. Maybe you're more if a candidate for a PT / online / EMBA in a few years of going back isn't going to be your thing - it's worth considering.

You won’t get in to a Top 15 with no experience or just 1 year, so question is moot. No offense or anything- it’ll benefit both you and your classmates if you come in with 3 or more years of experience
