I am interested in the MIT LGO program and will apply for the 2012 session. Below is my profile

Age: 29 yrs, male
Nationality: Indian, US Green Card
Education: MS in Electrical Engineering ( not ranked school)
GMAT:710 ( Q-47, V-41, Essay- 5.5)
Work Exp: 5-6 years
Background: I have Bachelors degree in Electronics and Communication from India with a GPA of approx 3.2/4.0. I did my Masters in Electrical Engineering ( avg school not ranked, GPA 3.9/4.0). I worked for a year at a Fortune 100 company manufacturing plant and then joined a startup. I worked at the startup (about 10-15 people) for about 3 years in the semiconductor industry. At this company the first year and a half i was supporting the operation/manufacturing group and then when things went bad for the company I was the only person left supporting the company manufacturing equipments and running the location (including managing time for part timers working at the company) I was at. I had the opportunity to understand the different aspects of the business such as cost cutting, improving efficiency etc.. I think this really helped me grow as an Engineer.
Due to some personal events in my life, I decided to move from the semiconductor industry to the medical industry. I wanted to do something that would make a difference in the medical industry. I worked for Fortune 100 company ( medical division) for a year in the Sustaining Engineering group and then joined another Fortune 100 company(medical industry) as a sr manufacturing engineering working with the operations group. I have been at this company for about 6 months and had the opportunity to lead some small projects and currently semi- leading a big project. I have always handled overseas manufacturing groups, responsible for improving operations. I am really interested to grow in the Operations field and have the experience of working in a small company environment as well as a big company.
I have been involved with lot of different extra curricular activities as well throughout my career such as organizing 3 day camps for 50-60 indian kids, started a fund at a hospital, organized sports events in college, tried starting a company with a coworker.. etc.

Are there any other schools that i will be a good match at?

Thanks for your help!!

Hi Hemantuec,

With regards to other recommended programs, can you speak more about your interests post-graduation?

For your candidacy, I hope the following link is of help. It is of an engineering candidate who was accepted into Columbia, Tuck, and MIT.

Hope this was of help.

Cheers,

Thank you for your response Stacey.

I am interested in Operations Management/ General Management.. I am still trying to figure out my long term career goals. i am also really interested in Management Consulting but I have heard that with my profile it would be hard to get into.

My concern is whether my profile is good enough to get into a top 10-15 MBA school.

Hi Hemantuec,

There isn't anything that you have written that would disqualify you from a top program. What it will come down to is how well you distinguish yourself from other qualified candidates. If you look in the URL I had posted earlier, the engineer really aimed to show his leadership abilities. I would recommend you look to do so as well. Some of your extracurricular activities are also very interesting.

If you'd like to have a free 30 minute phone call, you can sign up here as well: http://www.stacyblackman.com/contact/

Hope this was of help.

Cheers,

Conrad and the Stacy Blackman Team
