Allright good sir,
Well your work experience is as you have pointed out, a bit borderline, but I think that with a strong GMAT, and your applications to your Texas schools, you should be able to get an admit. Of course Texas is not the ONLY place where there is a good energy program (Haas too, and a few other places) nor the only place where there is oil (Alaska! Never seen a polar bear? I have a joke about one... but it's not for the forum
But, when you do apply, definitely address your weakness HEAD-ON. Use whatever you have to show that you are actually more experienced than the months of work would give to think. With that and some nice scores, you should be allright...
If you like the post, give it a KUDOS!
