Hey Alex,

Your YouTube posts are awesome, it's like watching MadTV or SNL except for b-school aspirants. Please let me know what you think of my profile.

I'll be turning 29 the October of my first year in business school. Although I've had several projects that have required me to lead engineering contractors, I have not gotten officially promoted and have not been in charge of anyone on my team.

I have delegated work plenty of times and have managed projects both within and without my company, but I am not sure if this counts as "leadership experience" because that can be so subjective. Does it necessarily mean having people under you in the org chart from an admission committee's perspective?

Personal:
Asian/Pacific Islander
Male, 28 years old at matriculation
GMAT: 730

Education:
BS Computer Engineering GPA: 3.4 at a regionally ranked school

Experience:
4.5 Years, Energy/Green Engineering for a Fortune 100 energy company

Extracurricular:
Over 130 Hours per year of church leadership. Mentor and teacher of over 25 inner city teens from different backgrounds. I had a missions trip overseas, but it only lasted one week.

I was president of a professional society during college with over 250+ members and I made a significant impact on the school's engineering program and student's careers opportunities.

Target schools: Booth, Yale, UT Austin, Columbia, and H/S/W

Haha thanks glad you enjoyed the videos, as they were fun to shoot.

Anyhow, it comes down to risk. Right now it's heavily weighted to stretches (3 out of the 7 are stretches in H/S/W), and sweet spots like Booth and Columbia aren't easy to get into either. If you're comfortable with a list that is on the ambitious side, then stick with this list. If not, you may want to only apply to 1-2 of H/S/W, and then add 1-2 of Duke/Darden/Ross to the list. That's really up to you.

What you have in your favor is that you aren't in an overcrowded segment (i.e. IT, software/hardware) -- and you're in an area that adcoms do like (green/energy). Also, having leadership activities outside of work helps your case as well, so overall you should have a solid chance at these schools, even if the list is a bit ambitious.

No matter where I go, I hope that I can keep my sense of humor like you did. Keep up the good work Alex.
