First of all, thank you for this service. I'm sort of cross-posting this, and I'm hoping that's OK. It seems to be how others are asking for these evaluations...

1) Work: I'm an environmental engineer and project manager at the #1/#2 (depends on the year) engineering consulting firm. I basically either work on or am in charge of teams put together on a project-by-project basis to address regulatory concerns and do design work. There’s also a smattering of due-diligence when our clients pursue acquisitions.

2) GMAT: 750 (q45, v48, IR8, assuming 6.0 AWA)

3) College: Notre Dame, 3.7, BS civil engineering, 2007. Graduate degree: MS analytics, 3.97, 2014 (part time)

4) Extra-curriculars: Unfortunately, my extra-curriculars don't really involve leadership. Initially after college I was caring for a sick parent, and then my time was spent working full-time with part-time graduate school and starting a small business (“hobbyist”-scale, but fun). I do mountaineering and fly fishing. I volunteer with my alumni group regularly, but not that frequently.

5) Credentials: Professional engineer

6) Targets: I would love to go to a Top 10, particularly Haas for the sustainable MBA

7) Timeline: I would like to apply R3 2013-2014 (i.e. now). I realize this is late, but I wanted to make sure I would finish my graduate thesis.

8) Post MBA: entrepreneurial, sustainable industry

I’m most worried about my age (part of the reason I am looking at Round 3), my work experience (not sure what top school really wants here; I haven’t cured cancer or anything), lack of leadership extracurriculars, and my low GMAT quant score. I very much appreciate any insight that you can provide.

The third round is pretty tight, but sustainability is a hot field and your GMAT score, even with the lower quant should not be a problem, but rather an asset since it would likely bring up the average at just about any school. Your academics will be a standout, with ND a top school with a great brand, and your MS in analytics will attract positive attention since analytics is all the rage. You should build this up in your application. The good news is, if you don't get in R3, your odds as a reapplicant go up (as reapplicants have a higher rate of admission). If this happens, you will want to beef up your extracurricular leadership as you indicate is weak. Not to harp on reapplying, but you likely know that if you find yourself in that position, you will need to demonstrate improvement in your profile, which could easily come from filling the EC gap.
