Profile Evaluation - Engineer [#permalink] New post 05 Jun 2013, 13:38
I am looking for some help to see what my chances are of getting into a top 10-15 school. Please let me know what you think.

Here is a summary of my stats and work experience.

- 27 years old currently (almost 29 at matriculation)
- Undergrad Engineering from top 3 Canadian program GPA: 3.12 (3.6 in final year) (I've been told GPA doesn't matter too much as an international; is that true?)
- I was a teaching assistant when in 4th year
- GMAT 740 (V42, Q48)
- 2.5 years at small energy efficiency engineering firm as energy engineer
- 2 years at one of largest energy efficiency engineering firm as energy engineer
- 1 year (as of June 2014; promotion already offered) with same company as Energy Project Account Executive (basically business development position)
- 65 months experience at matriculation
- Professional Engineer in the province of Ontario.
- volunteered with green energy NGO's from 2009-2011


I am looking to make a move into strategy consulting or internal strategy in the energy industry. Eventually I would like to work with energy companies on growth strategies (either through consulting or as part of the organization).

My target schools are:

- Berkeley Haas (for clean tech focus)
- Northwestern Kellogg
- Virginia Darden
- Duke Fuqua
- UCLA Anderson
- Dartmouth Tuck
- U Texas McCombs (not top 15 but good in energy)

I would plan to apply to all schools in R1 2014 intake. I might also try Duke ED if I decide I definitely want to go there (hard choice since I would probably put Haas and Kellogg ahead but might not have a great chance at either of those).

I would really appreciate any advice or opinion you can give me on my application choices and my likely hood of success.

Thank you in advance. I look forward to hearing from you.

PBerry,

You're welcome.

You have a shot at all your programs, but grades do count as do the grade trend. Haas and Kellogg as you clearly note are less likely acceptances. Tuck is probably also going to be a little tougher. You are competitive at the other programs and you are right to be applying also to UT.

Best,
Linda
