Your experience looks excellent; it will clearly be the key strength of your application (aligned with your goals). Ditto your extracurricular activities -- although not as central as your work, they will further differentiate and distinguish you.
I consider your list of schools solid
, with Cranfield, Broad, and Kelley being reasonable reaches, and Krannert and Cox being on-pars. I must reserve comment on the remaining programs, which I know are excellent but whose stats I don’t know offhand. However, I believe they’re in the same range of on-pars and reasonable reaches.
Overall, I don’t have programs to add, as I’d need to research just as you must – and you clearly have a good grasp of programs that are both within reach (as on-par or reasonable reach) and will meet your needs.
One point I would add is that it will be critical for you to clearly and effectively portray your key strength – you career – through examples of impact and leadership
That was a very valuable feedback Cindy. Really appreciate that you took out the time and replied to my post. I will keep your advice "it will be critical for you to clearly and effectively portray your key strength – you career – through examples of impact and leadership" in mind and prepare my essays accordingly.
I have just one more question. Do you think it would be wise to use the optional essay to let the schools be informed about my low verbal score?
I can list my AWA score (5/6) and TOEFL score(expected) to make a case?
