You certainly seem to have all the right stuff for a solid run at your target schools and I think what makes your profile particularly attractive is your work experience and how it will be appealing to recruiters. When b-schools identify that you will be a strong candidate with their recruiters, you get an extra bit of boost in the admissions process. Employability has been the operative buzzword over these past few years of struggling economy and because you are in a position to leverage your experience towards consulting, one of the most common and successful employment tracks for the schools you list here, I believe you will be making a choice over which one to attend IMHO. Let us know if we can help you at all--certainly Tuck will be a litmus test for your ability to craft a winning application. If you get into Tuck, you should be able to craft your subsequent applications on your own, but we do have specialists on staff who graduated from all your target schools, so could probably add some real value for you--also could help you prep for interviews when the time comes.

Hey Bryant,

I really appreciate the feedback and also the confidence in my profile. I actually purchased the Veritas guide on Tuck (which was very helpful, and I will definitely give you guys kudos if I get in), and I have done a TON of private research. I really have my heart set on Tuck, and if I get in, that will probably end my admissions journey. However, if I am waitlisted or denied, I will tidy up my other applications for R2 in January. Thank you for being a resource, and I will definitely reach out if needed for January!

Veritas has already helped me so much already!

Boeing is a great firm and will position you well for your target schools when coupled with your good GMAT score and EC involvement. Having done a leadership rotation at a fortune 500, you will easily convince these schools you bring real value to the table which your classmates can leverage to the benefit of study groups and team projects, etc. HBS may be more of a stretch, but certainly not out of the question. For HBS, make sure you focus on what differentiates you from other accounting types (hint: it sounds like you also speak some "engineeringese"
