Gmathuhh,

You didn't give me a lot of info, but based on your age, common profile (male Indian IT), apparent lack of formal leadership roles. and postcollege community involvement, I would say that your chances at Stanford are very small. Given your goals you would probably be competitive at these schools: Carnegie Mellon, UCI, Texas, Maryland. Long shots given your goals would be MIT and Haas.

Good luck,

Thanks Paul.
Would you agree that having 2 masters degree in engineering makes my case more persuasive? The fact that my role is more a subject matter expert than a 'stereo type' IT analyst gives me a chance to build on. I have successfully trained a team of customer service folks to successfully transition to system development positions. Have successfully layed out and improve operational efficiency interms of eliminating redundant processes and save costs.

I am geographically limited and would be quite change to move away from west coast.

I took notice of 'formal' leadership, community involvement......... any other pointers, suggestions to maximize my chances. I truly appreciate your response and you "Mr. PBodine" are accepted!!.

I have been working to undo the "male indian it" cliche.

Unfortunately, I don't think the double engineering master's degrees help you. First, it's something that needs explaining: why did you need two master's degrees, and why now a third. Second, the degrees only demonstrate your technical ability, which the B-schools will have no doubts about. Third, time in school often means time not in the workforce and B-schools like work experience.

The leadership stories--wherever they occurred--are key, as of course is breaking out of the "Male Indian IT" box by highlighting distinctiveness.

Good luck,
