Lots of great business experience, leadership, management… the extracurricular work is fantastic, full of initiative.

I like your chances and, although the over-saturation of MBA programs with Indian males makes admissions a lot more competitive for this demographic, you do not have the usual techie background and are therefore distinct.

Background and nationality
Gender: Male
Age: 26
Nationality: Indonesia

Undergrad Information
Institution: Large state school (Top 75 in the US)
Major: Industrial Engineering (Program is top 5 in the US)
GPA: 2.6
No particular reason. I was actually really into academics/school in general but just happened to give approximately 0 sh*** about grades. Saw many cheat/go through college and I correspondingly I became rebellious towards the concept of grades. Needless to say I regret having had that mentality. Trend roughly followed a linear 2.3-3.0 curve throughout my 4 years if that matters..

GMAT:
Overall: 680
Q: 48
V: 35
IR: 6
AWA: 4

Work experience and leadership
*I'm currently ~4.5 years out of undergrad*

Years 0-2 (Georgia): Consultant / Lead Consultant at a major supply chain software company
- Developed an omni-channel strategy and infrastructure for a $2B apparel company
- Implemented an order management platform to orchestrate all movements of a $7B retailer's inventory

Years 2-3.5 (California): Consultant at the largest privately-held enterprise software company
- Implemented a transportation management system for a top 5 largest company

Years 3.5-present (California): Senior Consultant at a Big4 (management consulting practice)
- Developed a rapid cost reduction strategy for the largest ag-retailer in north america
- Currently building the supply chain of a new business unit of a pharma giant essentially from scratch

Community and others
- President of an international community group for last 2 years of undergrad
- Ambassador of industrial engineering (IE) school throughout undergrad: basically conducted presentations/recruited on behalf of the IE program at various high schools.
- Career mentor for my alma mater's current IE students as well as for a local California high school

Post MBA goals
I'm aiming to go back to consulting after b-school. Specifically at MBB/ATK/OW/S&/PEY. Literally these 7 firms or bust, but am open to relocate to Asia (Singapore/Hong Kong) or South America. If I wound up somewhere outside of these 7 I would consider the MBA ROI negative.

Now comes the big question. Is it even worth spending time to pull up my GMAT score given my profile (mainly GPA) and career goals? Realistically, I think my cap would be around a 730 and I would not attend a school ranked lower than UCLA (#16). To put it in perspective, if "100%" represents the opportunities that would be available to me with an MBA, I am currently at about "75%".

Anything else?
To leave it open-ended, what are your thoughts around next steps? Thank you for reading this far if you did.

Could you help me understand my initial profile evaluation for these above 5 programs?



Between University of Toronto, University of Alberta and UBC, the average GMAT for these programs is around 650. The average work experience prior is around 5 years. If you are interested in these programs, you may want to spend a few more years working before applying.
From University of Toronto, 13% of graduates from the program go into marketing roles.

Carleton’s program is 16 months long, so I am not sure this program is relevant to your preferences.

Brock has a marketing specialization within their international program. I also see that on their website you can request a free pre-assessment. They offer little information about work experience and average GMAT scores, however, I’m sure that this is something that they will share with you if asked. This could be a good option for you.

You can also check out our free MBA chances estimation calculator. This may give you more personalized information.
