GMAT is compelling and so are EC’s. Focus on the narrative around WOE and growth/potential given your company is more flat.

Re: Ask Personal MBA Coach [#permalink]
Hi Scott and PMC, I would appreciate your critical evaluation of my profile.

Background, nationality, and educational background:
- 28, Female, Indian national, currently working in Europe
- BSc. in Environmental Sciences, 3.78/4.0 CGPA from a recognized Liberal Arts University in South Asia (received a full-ride scholarship for 4 years of the UG program)
- MS in Environmental Sciences and Policy, 3.36/4.0 CGPA from a recognized University in Europe (received a full-ride scholarship for 1 year of master’s program)

GRE: 309 (155V, 154Q) and hopeful to surpass 320 during retake

Work experience and leadership:
- Industry: Energy and Sustainability Consulting
- Current position: Risk Manager at F500 company
- Work ex and progression: 4.2 years (Analyst: 24 months -> Senior Analyst: 5 months -> Consultant: 17 months -> Risk Manager: 7 months). I was promoted 3 times during my work ex at current company.
- In my current role, I am managing commodity risk for multinational clients (around 60). I also manage Interns and Analysts.
- Multiple summer internships during UG

Community and others:
I am passionate about mentoring and have volunteered with multiple organizations over the last 10 years.
- Lead Employee Resource group at my company (around 3.5 years)
- Manage recruitment (internship and full-time) from my alma mater (1 year)
- Research Lead at an Environmental organization (4 years)
- Mentor at two NGOs that work for women and other minorities education in Asia. Mentored 4 students for their UG & MS applications (around 2 years)
- Co-founded a non-profit organization that provides admissions consulting for UG & MS to minorities in India (around 4 year)

Post MBA goals:
I want to pursue an MBA to improve my leadership skills and learn how businesses operate. Also, to learn and polish key business and finance-related skills.

Short-term: I want to do corporate strategy/operations consulting at MBB.
Long-term: Given my extensive energy and sustainability background, I am interested in continuing in strategy consulting or moving to the industry to do sustainability strategy at a Fortune 100 company.

Target schools: HBS, Wharton, MIT Sloan, Booth

Questions?
• What if I do not get 320+ in GRE? Do I still have a shot? Should I still apply in R1 with less than 320 in GRE or wait to get it up maybe apply in R2?
• People’s management: I manage interns and Analysts but on a dotted line. Would this count?

It’s possible, I think the limited work experience will be challenging as that’s very important for business schools.

You could apply R1 and then share new score for R2.

Hello, I had a few questions:
1. I had a 2.94/4 GPA in uni (B.Sc Economics) and had a few backlogs (re-exams) - will this hamper my chances in even considering T20 schools? Is there any such criteria based on which I am not eligible?
2. I am currently working in the social impact space- what schools would favour women in social impact as their potential candidates?
