Advice: if you do not know what to do after your MBA, do yourself a favor and do not apply. I've seen too many examples of people trying to figure it out in their 1st semester, it doesn't work & you will be stressed out. Recruiting goes by fast, and you need to prep before you step your foot on campus.
