Hi Paul I've asked the same question in the peer review area, and would value your advice
P.S. Hope this doesn't constitute double posting - if it does I apologize.
Matriculation Age: 29
BA Top 20 US school, Computer Science, cum laude, ~3.5ish GPA
MS Large US State school, Computer Science, ~3.1 GPA, completed while working
GMAT: not taken, expecting at least 720, aiming for 740+, Q>V
Work Experience: I spent about 4 years doing a vast array of different tasks while working for a small, entrepreneurial family import business in the states (doing marketing, ad design and copywriting, business development, tech support, office management, etc., 3 years of it while studying.) After that I moved to the UK, where I now work as a programmer for a well known developer of computer games.
International Profile: Born in Germany, spent over a decade in the states studying and working, now working in UK, native English & German, conversational albeit rusty Spanish
Extracurriculars: Not huge, but a few things here and there. I've made some attempts at web biz / startup but not much to show for it yet, avidly played online games and organized / lead large groups of people (think World of Warcraft) though that might not exactly be app material, I play classical guitar at a decent level, I attend a club or two
Career goals: I'm interested in tech/media entrepreneurship, games / interactive entertainment in particular. Failing that I'd like to be in the games industry in higher level business/strategy roles in the long run, and while MBA is not a common profile for doing this, it has been done. I would seriously consider gaining general business experience via consulting (and to pay off debt) directly post MBA.
I think I would make a decent profile, but there are a few areas of concern. Most notably my job progression and professional leadership experience could be stronger. When I transitioned to the UK I managed to get into the industry I always wanted, but I made sacrifices in compensation and title to do so. I do not have plans to program computers forever and enjoyed the more biz oriented tasks I did before, thus the desire for MBA.
I could certainly use some time thinking about and help crafting my story for adcoms.
Target schools in order of preference:
INSEAD - Jan 2010
LBS - Fall '09 R2
I have a strong preference for INSEAD due to the length, value, and large network. My uncle went a while back as well and offered to consult, (bad pun intended.)
