Engineer - GMAT 770 - Profile Evaluation Please [#permalink] New post 14 Dec 2010, 04:38

I am an Australian Environmental Engineer working on natural resource development projects for 4 years (almost 5 at Matriculation). I was working for a top mining company for 2 years and now work in a team leader role for a major, World Bank funded, hydro-electric project in Laos. I have worked in natural resource development on projects on 4 continents.

I want to pursue an MBA to develop my business evaluation skills to a level where I can work as an analyst that assesses the financial, social and environmental viability of natural resource development projects. I think I have written quite good essays that demonstrate this goal.

Other stats:
GPA: Not on 4.0 scale, was awarded H2A Honours (B+), Better marks late in degree, National sustainability award for final year design project
GMAT: 770, Q:50, V:44, AWA:4.5
Direct Reports: 3
LOR: I am confident that I will get favourable letters from my recommenders
ECs: Committee member of student organisation for 3 years in undergrad, project management of aid work in Ethiopia, several sporting clubs as player and one as captain.

I am looking at applying to the following schools and wanted to see whether you thought I was a reasonable chance:

You mention that you have written essays already. Have you already completed the applications for your target programs? You definitely stand a chance of getting in if your application package is strong. Your recommenders do not necessarily need to be those at the highest level of your organization but they do need to be able to write in detail about your strengths and achievements. You also need to clearly articulate both your short and long-term goals and the role an MBA will play in helping you achieve them.
