Hello Stacy,

Your feedback on my profile would be greatly appreciated. Trying to determine where I stand with top tier schools and where I should be aiming realistically. I'm looking to apply for a fall of 2014 start date, so by then I would be 27 with 4 years of experience. Thanks in advance!

Background:
-26-year old Asian male
-700 GMAT based on practice test
-B.S. in Environmental Chemical Engineering with 3.1 GPA, but 3.6 GPA in final 2 years
-Graduated from reputable engineering/sciences school in Northeast (WPI)

First year as an internal global operations consultant, traveling to manufacturing sites in China, East Asia, Central America, and Europe working on operations excellence, process improvement/six sigma, and cost reduction projects. 2nd year I worked in supply chain and product management.

-Currently work for an online retailer/Fortune 100 company in category management, making strategic sourcing decisions, developing product merchandising strategies and negotiating with suppliers. I have been with the company 9 months and have already delivered great results, and have been recognized as a future leader by multiple senior VP’s. I would be able to get strong recommendations at the SVP level of both my company and external suppliers, as well as my current manager, who is a Wharton alum with 4-5 years at McKinsey

Career goals:

Short-term: Management consulting and corporate strategy

Long-term: International business development and global growth strategy for a CPG/ecommerce company trying to break grounds internationally

Hi stshine,

Thanks for posting. Your numbers indicate that you have the intellect and focus to thrive in a top tier MBA program. Nothing about your story makes me think there is any reason why you cannot be admitted, but nothing stands out telling me why you should be admitted. All of the reasons why a top program would admit you are in the details of your work experience, personal experiences, personality, values and overall story.

If you'd like, we have free school specific advice here:
