This spoof of the SNL skit “Lazy Sunday” was recorded for the Georgetown MBA 2006 Annual Report (ie talent show). “McDonaldsMBA” is a play on “McDonough” which is the name of the business school at Georgetown (McDonough School of Business).

Answer by Tommy G.
If by good college you mean a nationally ranked and recognized program, then the answer is that it is highly unlikely. For the bottom of the top tier of schools (i.e. # 20-30), the average work experience is just under 5 years PLUS competitive GMAT and competitve GPA.
That is not to say that it does not happen. I went to Georgetown MBA and there was a kid in my class who was 21 years old from Kazakhstan (not kidding). I wondered why he was there considering that the average age of my class was 28. I worked with this guy in groups and realized that this guy was a highly decorated mathematician with particular talents in statistics. Bottom line: this guy got in because he was a recognized world class talent.
The only other way that I’ve seen an undergraduate matriculate directly into an MBA program without a GMAT score is in an impacted program through specific universities. Example: Some programs offer an impacted track that gives you a BS in business and an MBA in 5 years. There are not many of these programs and it is usually reserved for high school students who have exceptional SAT, GPA, and outstanding business related merits.
My advice is to take the GMAT in January and get a job when you graduate. Since you are in the mindset of school right now and you have the time, it is easier to take the GMAT. I took it when I was working. That is really hard from a time management perspective. Your score will be good for 3 years so it will be ready when you need it. Take the time and get the score as high as you can, get the right work experience, then apply a few years later.
Hope this helps….
