Hi everyone,

I was wondering if you could kindly give me a feedback on my profile and on my chances at the schools listed below...

Age: 28
Nationality: Italian

Education: BSc in Aerospace Engineering, cum laude; GPA equivalent: 4.0 (final), 3.8 (overall). Università degli Studi di Palermo (Italy).
GMAT: just taken once last december, 740, 47Q 44V (pretty sure I can do significantly better on Q)

Relevant Work Experience: Intern at Top MC (M/B/B) with strong recos; then 3+ years in a small engineering consulting firm in Italy working in renewable energy (wind and solar plants) for world leading energy companies, entering as a junior partner and afterwards promoted until becoming partner and general manager, coordinating a 12 people team, taking care of business development and project management. In the meantime, acted as entrepreneur too founding, developing and eventually selling some green energy start-ups.

Extracurricular: co-founder of a small classic car racing team, co-founder of a local youth charitable organization

Short term Post MBA Target: Management Consulting, hopefully at the same company I had my experience into. In Europe or US.

MBA Target Programs: MIT Sloan, Columbia, INSEAD, and of course H/W/S

I already applied for MIT R2, I plan to apply for J-term 2013 at Columbia and INSEAD. As for H/W/S, I am aware that international applicants are usually discouraged to apply R3: nevertheless I was evaluating this option as I fear that waiting for next R1 could be too late (for my age). What do you think about it?

Thanks in advance,

all the best

Hi,

You have a strong profile for all these programs

Round 3 at H/W/S is fiercely very competitive, if age is the only concern, than i think you should not worry much about being 28/29 and apply in round 1.

The only problem is that if you do not get through round 3, and later when you apply to round 1 in next few months, you would have nothing much to add in your profile, so if you think your only concern is AGE, i would suggest you to apply in round 1 , you will have great chances to get in.

still, if you want to take a chance, apply with very very strong essays and recommendations, in round 3, i have never seen run of the mill profiles getting in ( especially international applicants )

Last but not the least, you gotta decide also where you wanna settle post MBA - i see combination of US schools and INSEAD, i am saying this particular because when your profile and GMAT are strong, you easily get into one school and start getting confused as to where do you wanna go ? so better decide first ( just a personal suggestion ), I have seen people ending up choosing wrong school just because of lack of patience.

Let me know if i could be of any help

Good Luck
