For the fall of '07 its probably a little late to apply anywhere. Considering the applications are usually pretty intensive and most dates for applications have gone by.

A 3rd engineer...and I thought I would be the only licensed marine engineer around. If he doesn't end up attending in 2007 tell your brother he should upgrade his license if he has the sea time. I graduated in 2002 with my 3rds and most of my friends from school who have shipped out for 5 years now are 1st or chief engineers. If anyone in the admissions office understands the license structure they will see the hire the rating as an indication of more leadership responsibility.

I am sure he has some interesting subject matter to write about in his essays which is good. Plus its a rather unique background and really can look good to admins judging from some of the alumni from my school. I know several who have gone to HBS, GSB, and a few other top schools. A few who I have talked to said that they all made big impressions during interviews with schools and later with companies.

Good Luck.

Enigmaenigma,

Riverripper's advice to you is good. I also agree that it's a bit late for fall 2007, especially if you are looking for schools where he is *certain* to get in. That's a tall order at this stage of the game. Given his goals, his GMAT, and the (little) info you posted about him, I would recommend the following programs (ranked highly in finance) as places where he has a good shot at admission (assuming no huge weaknesses in his application):

--Indiana (Kelley)
--Florida (Warrington)
--Boston College
--UNC (Kenan-Flagler)

If you want schools where he will "definitely" get in, you will need to look much lower on the list. I also recommend that he wait and apply in the fall to improve his odds.

Good luck,

Whoa! Riverriper, I knew you were in the merchant marines but didnt know you were a 3rd too :o ( like me). But yeah, that was in a different life :) . I have taken up entrepreneurship for the past one year ever since I quit the sea. Most of my friends are 2nds now.
