Age: 27
Undergraduate degree: Bachelors in Physics from University of Kansas (right under 3.0 - been awhile and I can't remember)
Master Degree: Physics with a emphasis in Nuclear/Health Physics (GPA: 3.64) from Idaho State University (paid for by Idaho State University)
Vice President of Health Physic Society (Idaho State University)
GMAT: Planning on taking it at the end of this month

Work Experience:

-Worked through out my entire masters as a undergraduate lab instructor for general and engineering Physics 1 & 2.
-Worked at University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center as a Radiation Safety Specialist (6 months)
-Accepted a job at a government agency called the Nuclear Regulatory Commission as a Health Physicist (Oct '11 -current)

I live in the Chicago area, so there are some great schools to consider. I know it will be hard to judge without a GMAT score, but I wanted to get your opinion on how good or bad my profile looks. All of the programs that I will be applying to will be part-time programs. I will be applying to Northwestern (Kellogg), DuPaul, Loyola University of Chicago, and University of Chicago (Booth).

Thank you very much.

Expert's post
There is much consistency in your career as a student and physicist, which will look good to the adcoms. It's also unique to come from a non-feeder industry (such as banking, finance or business). For these reasons, I think you'd have a shot at all your target programs. Don't worry about GPA below 3.0--you'll get points for a tough major and you have a master's degree, so I doubt they will have concerns over your ability to handle the MBA. PT programs are more lenient anyway. Let us know if we can help you prepare your applications.

Bryan,

Thank you very much for your evaluation. I was a little hesitant to take the GMAT (just signed up today) and apply to these schools, but after reading your professional opinion I am looking forward to taking the next steps in pursuing my MBA. Thanks again.
