GMAT Forum - MBA Forum the gmat club is way more active on this topic. In short, no work experience will seriously hurt your chances at an decent MBA programs. You could do an master's in healthcare administration without real work experience, but people in those have usually interned in a hospital at some point. I would recommend looking for a job first and then going for an MBA in a few years. Do well on the GMAT. It is a pretty big part of the process.
