Work Experience
I will have total 4 year experience as an Engineer at matriculation with big three oil company.
Some main achievement
1) Successfully implement Lean-Six Sigma project with $6MM in benefit. Youngest engineer in Business Unit to be nominated to do so.
2) Work closely with Houston-based project team to develop and implement new applications used to prevent catastrophic failure. $7.5MM benefit. Be a team of ten from every Business Units around the world.
3) Supervised 20+ offshore technicians.
4) Got a promotion after 2.5 yr since joining, faster than peers. Annual performance is always in top section.

1) US ex-boss. Already engaged and expect to get strong one.
2) Local Lean-Six Sigma coach. Even though he already moved out from my office, he got a big position at one of the biggest bank here.

1) Board member, Company's cooperative with $15MM portfolio
2) Volunteer to develop infrastructure at rural areas during university break.
3) Vice President of university club handling event organization.
4) Sports/Travelling

Short: To do career change into consulting or VC
Long: To establish VC opportunity in my country, currently we do not have this kind of funding

I plan to submit all of them are in Jan.
1) HBS - Think to submit only one as chances are very slim, any suggestion which one has better chance?
2) Sloan
3) Haas
4) Tuck
5) Ross
6) Duke
7) Tepper

1) How practical in my application strategy? Is it too risky?
2) I already registered for GMAT retake? Will 740 change the game plan?

Thanks for your time in advance for your help.

Expert's post

Thanks for submitting your profile. Your work experience is very strong. Your academic profile is also strong, but I do think a 740ish score would improve your chances, esp at your top choice schools. I don't see a ton of post-college extracurricular/community leadership initiatives, so that would be my big concern with your profile. What exactly is the company cooperative that you manage?

I'd actually say your application strategy is pretty solid. You have a nice mix of target programs (Ross, Duke), 1 good safety in Tepper, Tuck/MIT/Haas would be your reach targets, and HBS the long shot.

Can you clarify you HBS-specific question; I didn't fully understand it. Thanks!
