Default A nontraditional student in need of advice for business school

Hello everyone,

I'm currently a junior Accounting Major in college with a 3.71 GPA. I haven't taken the GMAT yet, but I'm wondering if I should wait 2 years to go to business school or go right away.

There is also the dilemna of deciding which business school to go to. Marquette University for example would admit me without requiring the GMAT.

Although, considering my GPA, I think I have a good shot at possibly being admitted to top business schools such as Harvard, Chicago.

The dilemna is, should I take the GMAT and apply to Harvard's 2+2 program or Chicago's full time MBA program which would start in the fall of 2019? Or apply to Marquette for the fall of 2019 (the benefit of Marqutte would be that I would have a good chance of getting a fellowship and/or scholarship).

Or should I keep on getting good grades and apply to graduate school after 2 years of working full time as an accountant.

Thank you and I greatly appreciate the advice.

Hello ^^
I'm going to apply for the MSc in business school
Speak to the people who know the institution best and will answer all your questions honestly: the students. Ask friends (or friends of friends) who attended your prospective institutions or ask the students first hand at open day or masters events
