Hi, mourinhogmat1,

Thanks for your post. It sounds like you have a variety of interesting professional and extracurricular experiences. The one concern for top 10 programs would be your academics, particularly your undergraduate GPA (that is on a 4 point scale, correct?). If you improved your GPA in later years or have an explanation for why your GPA is 2.5, you could address in your Optional essay. Your GMAT quantitative score is certainly in range, but given your GPA you most likely want to get your overall score in the 700s. You could consider adding some non-top 10 programs to your list too. In terms of LGO/MEM, you need to think about what you need to learn to get into your future career goals. You will also need to communicate why you need these degrees in addition to your Masters in Mechanical Engineering.

Good luck,
Susan Kaplan
