Please review my profile and let me know what you think. I would like to enroll in 2014 (Class of 2016).

White, Male, 25 years old
Bachelors in Engineering from the University of Michigan, GPA 3.1
GMAT 760 (Q48 V48) 6.0 AWA 8 IR

I have worked for just over 3 years at a manufacturing company in the midwest. I started in a 2 year rotational program and was promoted to an Engineer position after the program. On top of day to day tasks, I have worked on a number of projects in the company geared toward saving money.

Extracurriculars: I volunteer for the local chapter (non profit) of a society made up primarily of engineers. I started on the executive board then served as Secretary for a year. I am currently serving as Vice Chair and will be promoted to Chair next year. We hold monthly meetings, which involve dinner and a technical speaker from the area. We organize events for local students to get them interested and engaged in engineering. We also organize day long seminars available to professionals throughout the society. I have organized many of these events and meetings and by all accounts have excelled at improving the chapter.

I have also participated in smaller events such as Habitat for Humanity and worked with a local organization that alters toys for disabled children.

At this point, I think I'd like to get into a general management LDP with a company. Finance is another area that I'm giving a strong look.

For various reasons, a few schools have risen to the top of my list: Tepper, Ross, and Kellogg. I realize Kellogg is more competitive than Tepper and Ross, but do these schools seem to fit with my profile? Would I be wasting my time applying to Booth or Sloan?

Also, is there anything I could do in the next year or so (before applying) that would strengthen my profile and increase my chance of admission and/or scholarships?

Thanks a lot.

Hi bdepp,

Thanks for posting. Regarding your school selection, it is always a good idea to choose the program that is the best fit for you. For Booth and Sloan, when you say waste of time, do you mean because you would not be interested in attending or because you do not believe you would be accepted? There are many factors to your application, but you do have a strong candidacy.

For what you can do in the upcoming year, I recommend you read these case studies, which provide insight into how students prepared and were accepted into top MBA programs: http://www.stacyblackman.com/case-studies/
