Good afternoon,

I would appreciate it if you can evaluate my profile and give me advice. My case is the following:

I am Spanish and 29 years old. I hold a Degree in Chemical Engineering (top tier of the class) and have more than 4 year of experience in the Oil & Gas Sector, working for a big engineering company. I have some international experience since I have been working in Saudi Arabia for the last 4 months and will stay there for around a year.

My GMAT is Overall 730, Q49 and V40. Second attempt. My TOEFL 105.

Extra-curricular info: I created and investment club with a friend, played footbal for several years during my young year. I am also a runner, having run several halfmarathon and a trail marathon.

Because I had to prepare the GMAT for a retake I will apply for second round and this is the listof schools I am willing to apply: INSEAD, LBS and IESE. I think I am good for these ones, although I would appreciate any advice.

With my new GMAT score, I plan to apply to Columbia as well. I would love to study and MBA at USA and columbia is my favourite for a bunch of reasons. However, I don´t want to put much effort and time on the application if I don´t stand a chance, how do you see it?

Thank you very much in advance for your time.

Thanks for sharing your profile. What is your GPA and what are your career goals? This would help with your evaluation

Thanks for your reply. My GPA during my engineering degree is 6,83 over 10 (I have not converted to the US metric), anyway let me say that I might be on the top 12% of my class, even the number one of my class had a GPA below 8...and in the master`s degree my GPA is 8,6 over 10, do schools take into account the kind of degree you have studied? Does a strong GMAT make it up for a low GPA? To be honest, during my degree I didn`t give my very best, and I would hate that because what I did 10 years ago I cannot study an MBA.

My MBA "dreamed" goals are changing to Finance or Consulting Sectors. However, the main reason I want to course an MBA is to switch career from my technical position, which I do not find appealing enough for the long term, to a more "business" and management role, so if the goals mentioned below are too high I would also be good with more realistic position such as business development...

Thanks again for your support.

Thanks for the additional information. B-schools do care about all of your academic performance even at the grad school level. I would say your undergrad tends to hold more weight. Alsp, as you asked, a high GMAT score can certainly help to balance out a lower GPA, it will not exonerate it but does a lot to help and this is the best way to counteract a lower GPA.

I think with your profile you can take a shot at the schools you have listed above
