Hi Brian, please let me know what you think.

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.

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

Target Post-MBA: Energy/Consulting

Hello Talino, thanks for your question.

I think your GMAT score opens up the door at all the programs you list. Are your verbal and quantitative scores over 80%?

I always say that managing people or a team is by no means the only kind of leadership experience. Your competitiveness will come down to your ability to draw upon “moments” when you truly led in and out of the office: influenced individuals and organizations, drove results, took initiative. You can do all of that without officially heading a team or department.

Moreover, you seem to have strong extracurricular activities. Take advantage of your leadership experience in that arena and use it in your essays.

Best of luck!
Brian
