I think so. Should probably have 3 to 4 years work experience before getting your mba

Part of the opportunities and offers you have post-MBA will depend on your pre-MBA experience. So it’s better to try a few different things out (or one thing if you already know what you want to do) That said, if you get in, you may have opportunity to defer for a year so you can already be in and not worry about apps

About deferrals, some schools won’t let you keep your fellowship if you defer

Yes.....

Minimum 3 years experience

If I apply this cycle I would start school in 1 year and at that point I would have 2.5 years of experience. Isn’t that within reason?

Nah it’s not enough Just wait another two years You don’t want to be the youngest or weakest in the class...

Wait an extra year. I didn’t and wish I had. You’ll have a lot more opportunities available if you wait

I went within a year and wish I had waited longer. You just get more out of it with more work experience
