Profile Eval- Atypical Applicant Public Sector Experience [#permalink]
13 Jan 2014, 22:06
I recently applied to MBA schools R2 and can't really figure out if I am very strong applicant (will even get funding) or don't stand a chance. I was hoping to get some insight into my chances as if there is a strong likelihood I will get in to a school there are a lot of things I need to arrange with my current job as well as my wife's.
Age: 28M and married, no children.
Ethnicity: Hispanic (born and grew up in US, but also hold Guatemalan citizenship)
Test scores: I took the GRE instead of GMAT, since I was more familiar with the test 165/V 168/Q GMAT equivalent of 760.
Undergrad: I went to public university, 3.61 GPA Econ/Political Science
Grad School: Harvard Kennedy 2 yr MPP and have a 1yr diploma from Johns Hopkins SAIS in 09. GPAs at both was around 3.25.
Work Experience: A significant amount of contract/internship working and living abroad in Italy and South America in primarily energy. More recently worked in public sector in a variety of capacities including as a HS math teacher. Currently working as a successful entrepreneur in RE. Started as a hobby and went on to do it full-time.
I applied to a range of schools ranked from 1-12.
I think on about every area I differ a bit from the traditional applicant, even having taken the GRE as opposed to GMAT, so I don't feel using class profiles is meaningful.
I would truly appreciate any insight anyone can offer. It took a lot to apply to MBA now with my own family and business, and this uncertainty is a bit stressful on us all.
