Hi everyone, I was wondering how likely the chances are of getting into a top 20 business school (i.e. Columbia, NYU) straight out of college? Does limited work experience work very much against you? I haven't done much in the field and am going to be working "seriously" for the first time this summer. And how important are GMAT scores...what cutoff would you recommend for those schools? Also, almost all interviews are by invitation only. If you get invited for one, is that a good or bad sign? Does it mean that you are a top candidate and they want to get to know you better, or does it mean you're borderline and the interview makes/breaks your application? Lastly, about recommendations, does it have to be from a professor in your major, or can profs from other classes give them? Thank you so much!
