Profile Evaluation and School Suggestions [#permalink] New post 03 Jul 2013, 19:37
1. I have been working as a manufacturing engineer for a defense contractor since I graduated college in 2010. In my job, I have experience managing the daily operations for two projects, troubleshooting issues in teams, and leading process improvement projects.
Also, I worked on the side for a short period assisting with the development and design of websites.

2. GMAT - 750 ( 49 Q, 44 V), I am considering taking it again to bring up my quant score.

3. In 2010 I graduated from Purdue University with a major in Industrial Engineering and a minor in Management with a 3.42 GPA.

4. I'm weak in extracurricular activities. I'm physically active playing in city league sports, running , and hiking. I am also a certified scuba diver, working towards my advanced certification. I also attend events in my local alumni organization.

5. Certifications - Six Sigma Green Belt

6. I am interested in a program where I can have an analytical focus in my MBA education. I'm looking at Carnegie Mellon, UT Austin, and Cornell(possibly a dual degree with an MEng in operations research and information engineering). I'm also looking at Michigan, Columbia, Virginia, and NYU. I love the curriculum options at Northwestern and Wharton, but I understand that my chances are low at those schools and I'm not sure if it's worth applying to either of them. I would appreciate any recommendations on which schools to apply to based on my qualifications and interests.

7. I would like to apply in the first round if I am comfortable with my application.

8. My first choice it to work in an analytical consulting position. My backup would be to use my experience and the same analytical skills I want in my education to get an operations position.

You don't need to retake your GMAT.

You're doing a good job of choosing your schools. I like CMU, UT and Cornell for you. I also believe that Ross and Darden are excellent choices given your goals. Certainly you can't go wrong with CBS and NYU Stern or with Kellogg and Wharton. However, if you are more enthusiastic about Wharton and Kellogg than about CBS and NYU Stern, apply to Kellogg and Wharton. All four are very similar in terms of the difficulty of acceptance.

Best,
Linda
