Thank you for evaluating my profile

- 28 years old black male and French Citizen, raised by a single mother with a two-year degree
- I was raised in Africa, immigrated with my family to France when I was 11, and immigrated to the US about 6 years ago. I am now a permanent resident of the US. I believe this qualifies me as an URM.
- GMAT 710 (48Q, 40V)
- GPA: evaluated to 3.53 by WES
- Dual Master in aeronautical engineering from top tier French School in aviation and in Airport development and management, from Florida Institute of Technology

- I have been providing airport planning and design expertise on airport nation-wide and worldwide, focusing primarily on passenger terminal facilities. In other words I analyze the projected activity at the airport and provide solutions to handle the forecasted activity and the best course of action to the preferred solution.

- Extra curricular In college: I was the manager of the sponsors division of a student-run non profit association that organizes an annual airshow. The airshow is free and is the biggest of the southwest of france with about 20,000 people. that year, my team of 11 volunteers broke the records in donation.
- I am currently a Junior Achievement volunteer teacher and a member the Leadership council of a local chapter of non-profit organization that raises money to build school in developing countries.

Long term, after several general management positions within the company, I would like to be a senior executive for an airline.

- I am primarily targeting schools that I have strong ties with aviation or transportation industry: HBS, MIT, Chicago, Kellogg, Cornell, Texas, and Michigan

Thank you

Your background is compelling, especially residing in three different countries. The kind of cultural experience you would bring to any school could not be matched.
You have a decent GMAT score and an average GPA. Your undergraduate background is unique. The brand name of the school may help you in making a good first impression.

Your work experience sounds really good. Please explain the results achieved at workplace. Did you have a lot of leadership experience? Were you felicitated with awards from your employers?

Your extracurricular activities are outstanding. You seem to have displayed significant leadership ability here especially as you broke records in donation collection, and the event with such large number of attendees.

Your long term goal post MBA is clearly aligned to your past work experience. This would certainly help.
You should apply to HBS, MIT, Chicago and Kellog.
As you have significant international experience, I would suggest you to apply to INSEAD and LBS. These schools are ranked among the top, and value international experience.

Good Luck!
