The industry / role / country combo only sets the context that you operate in. What you do in that context is far more important.
Focus on what makes you special in that industry.
What have you done that's praise-worthy? What do you plan to do after your MBA that helps you take your career to the next level?
100% agree with with Sameer there. As someone who was in this industry, and (still) received multiple full fellowships and got admitted to top 10 schools, I can vouch for the same. Moreover, I have seen 100s of (egmat
) students who have been from traditional Tech backgrounds and have gotten into top schools. Recently, one of our students got into HBS with a 710. Why - she was a top performer and did some impressive things at work.
Bottom line - what have you done in your career and how can you sell it matters.
