Thank you for using the timer!
We noticed you are actually not timing your practice. Click the START button first next time you use the timer.
There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:
I'm 32, have two Masters Degrees in Computer Science (one was because I quit a Ph.D. program early), and about a 3.4-3.5 undergraduate GPA with a major in Mathematics from a top 15 university (depending on how you calculate it). I have about 6 years experience as a software developer and a year as an adjunct professor. I also have a 770 GMAT (I don't remember the exact breakdown but I scored more highly on the verbal). I currently make six figures as a software engineer, but *hate* it, and don't look forward to working my way up the technical management food chain (in my estimation, if I did that, I would have a job that I liked ... on the day that the Queen of England and the Pope make a simultaneous guest appearance on Jersey Shore).
I applied to programs last year, but didn't get in anywhere that I wanted to go (semi-regretting that decision). On the other hand, I have been *promoted* to Product Manager (actually, it's more just added responsibility rather than a strict promotion) that gives me some more things that I can talk about in applying this year.
I realize that I am a fairly unique candidate--some would say too old, but I want to go get an MBA from a good school anyway.
Currently, my plan post MBA is to work for a consultancy doing projects at the intersection of business with technology (often referred to as strategic alignment). I have a contact in a small consultancy that does such work and am fairly sure that I could be that with an MBA they would hire me, although I may prefer to shoot for a larger firm first.
I currently work on the West coast but would really rather move to the East coast if possible.
Any help in evaluating my application would be welcome.
