MBA Admission Profile Evaluation [#permalink] New post 08 May 2013, 18:57
Hello,

I would appreciate some help in evaluating my profile for an MBA admission. For starters, the schools I am interested in are: INSEAD and IE.

I will split the profile into three different parts (Academic, Work Experience and Extra-curricular/Volunteer activities) and I will also mention my background to highlight my international experience.

I am originally from Lebanon and I traveled to Montreal, QC, Canada for education and work experience.

Academics:

McGill University: Major Electrical Engineering, Minor in Management
GPA: 3.53
GMAT: 660

Work Experience

1- Bombardier Aerospace:
- System Integrator for one year in the Flight Controls department
- Engineering Lead for 2 years (presently still occupying the position) in the Flight Controls department
I started off as a System Integrator in the flight control systems department. Through hard work, initiative and leadership, I was able to get an Engineering Lead position in the same department. I am very valued in the organization and I can get a very good recommendation from my manager who will be able to vouch for my leadership skills.

2- Other internships/short term work experienes

Extra-Curricular Activities

Throughout University:
- VP Finance for the Lebanese Student Association of McGill
- Marketer for AISEC McGill
- Soccer intra-murals
Throughout Work Experience:
- Volunteer for the annual Bombardier Centraide Campaign and appointed as Campaign director, again, through hard work and demonstrated leadership
I started off as a regular volunteer and as a primary organizer for one of the yearly fundraising events. I was able to work my way up and be recommended as a Campaign director. I could get a recommendation from one of the previous campaign directors and he can also vouch for my leadership abilities.
- Mentor for a young child with Big Brothers Big Sisters
- Toastmaster's Club (Public Speaking)

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

INSEAD is a stretch. You are more competitive at IE.

Best,
Linda

Hi Linda,

Thanks for the feedback.

With regards to INSEAD, is it a stretch because of my GMAT score or would it still be a stretch with the same profile but a GMAT score of 700?

A balanced 700 GMAT score at INSEAD would significantly improve your chances. Your work experience is a little shorter than INSEAD typically accepts, but you have had good progression and that will help you.

Best,
Linda
