Interested in how to enroll in the Professional MBA program at GA State University? No worries! I’ll tell you everything!
First step is the hardest one – make up your mind. You really need to question yourself, discover what you want, how committed you want to be to your higher education, how much money you can invest and how much time you have.
Secondly, take a GMAT prep course and the GMAT test itself. Good luck! Hey, BTW, depending on your education and GPA, GMAT can be waived 🙂 Yes, I’m sure. Luckily, mine was waived as I have a JD degree and a high GPA of 4.0. BUT! You may be asked WHY you think the test should be waived for you, so prepare.
Thirdly, if you are an immigrant (well, if you are, this actually will be your FIRST step), take an Academic English Test. There are two types of them and a set standard for a score from each one. It your score is high enough, follow next steps. If not, you can ask me how I prepared – perhaps it will help you. No, I did not take any courses. I did read lots of books and professional magazines, though.
Forth step is to prepare and submit your application alone with your Resume and Essays. I know there are some folks out there who offer to write your resume and help you prepare for the interview and essays, but my honest advice is LOOK WITHIN YOURSELF. If you pretend you’re something you are not, you may get through the admission, but you can’t pretend for two years, right? So, essays. How do you write those? Again, ask yourself questions that are offered as topics, and just role-play as if you were an outside interviewer and the other YOU were to respond. Write it down. You can get some good ideas from professional magazines, good books on self-development. Just be honest with yourself. The structure of each essay is easy: tell them what you’re gonna tell them, tell them, tell them, tell them, tell them what you’ve told them. Google this method – that’s what I used for my essays.
The final step is the interview – it was fun for me! I absolutely enjoyed, and honestly it was the easiest step. I was fully prepared though.
Just remember: all the reasoning and your best answers are within you, so just ask YOURSELF!!!! It won’t help with GMAT and English Test, no 🙂
