I just came back from my GMAT and now I would like to have my "quite unusual" profile evaluated.
30 years old white male
Born and living in Germany
GMAT 710 (q47, v41)
TOEFL 114 of 120 (IBT)
Bachelor of Computer Science (University of Potsdam)
GPA 2,3 (on a 1-5 scale where 1 is best)
Currently doing distance courses with the aim at becomming additional bachelor of business administration (half finished - current GPA 1,7 on a 1-5 scale where 1 is best)
3 years military (sports soldier / competive athlete)
2,5 years junior project manager (biggest wholesaler in Europe)
1 year junior project director (start-up)
Currently as project director I am project lead for projects up to 8 employees with diverse background (design, engineering, IT). I am responsible for project up to 400k$.
I did 13 years of professional sport and was 7 years member of the national canoe team. I was twice medal-winner in international championships and member of the Olympic team for 2000 Olympic Games in Sydney.
I would like to start my MBA in 2008.
1. I would like to apply to Stanford (I love this school), Harvard, MIT, NY Stern - what are my chances?
2. Should I mention my distance learning studies even when they are not yet finished, or do I have to finish it before applying?
3. I am member of "Mensa International" - should I mention this when applying?
4. I don't want to ask my current boss for a letter of reference because this might look bad when i am not going to be accepted. Is this negative for my application?
Thanks for your comments.
