2.55 GPA definitely address this in optional essay- no excuses- but just context. Did you have a tough time adjusting to college? were you in wrong major and once you fixed that things improved? And also see if you can take econ or stats or calc or financial accounting in a graded class and make an A. That will help- and so will your killer GMAT so congrats on that!

be sure to rate McCombs first in Consortium if that is your goal. And I suggest you engage in visiting campus in fall and reaching out to students there.

Thank you for taking the time to check out my profile. Being a non-traditional student, I have some concerns on how I'm going to stand out and after doing a lot of research over the past year, it's time to put myself out there and get some advice. Thanks again!

Background/nationality: Career changer, white male, American, 34 y/o, LGBT

Undergrad school/major: Top 50 Public School (Big 12), BSc Petroleum Geology

Undergrad GPA: 2.9 overall with an upward trend; last 60 hrs/GPA in major = 3.2. No real excuse for this except just not knowing what I wanted to major in for the 1st few semesters and my grades suffered until I found my major.

GMAT Score: 680 (42Q/40V)

Work experience: 9 years in O&G mostly working for E&P's; US onshore upstream operations/development roles. No managerial roles; more project management (in O&G it seems to take much more time to get into any kind of leadership roles).

Extra curricular: Most recent: delivery driver and kitchen assistant for a non-profit that makes meals for those with life-threatening illness; volunteer usher at one of the largest performing arts centers in the country; volunteer for outdoor preservation group; trumpet player in community concert band; other various corporate-sponsored programs (United Way, Junior Achievement, Habitat for Humanity).

Post MBA goals: I currently have 3 pathways that I'm interested in:
1.) General management/rotational program in Energy
2.) O&G investment banking
3.) Management Consultant with hopes of exiting to O&G later
*also interested in GE EFS but not sure where that fits in here

I'd like to add that UT, Tepper, and UNC are at the top of my list but I know these are probably stretches and definitely have lower ranked programs on my list as well. Open to suggestions on schools I may have overlooked.

Thank you for your response! I did change majors during undergrad and that had some impact on my GPA. I will look in to taking a graded quant course to improve my applicant profile.

I would recommend that you retake the GMAT, aiming for 740+ to offset the GPA concerns. McCombs would be a reach school given your stats and background. I believe you have a good shot at some of the other schools you listed in your profile (i.e. Jones).

You seem to have a great Verbal score ...Why not take GMAT again and get atleast 45 in Quant as it would be required to prove to the adcom that you can handle their curriculum which is high on quant...
I am sure with ur profile and experience (and a bit high quant score) you would make a great prospect for McCombs..

Let me know if you need any help...

Hi,
Non-traditional may raise slightly more questions (i.e. you want to show that you know what you'll get out of the MBA and how it will help you), but it can be a plus in that you may be slightly more memorable in the process, and since you compete most with people most like you, having a smaller group of similar applicants is not necessarily a bad thing. ;) Try to emphasize all of the experiences and skills you've gained in your career as a way to showcase what you'll bring to the classroom discussions. Also be sure to emphasize your volunteering/community experiences. With the GPA challenge and without a stellar GMAT, UT may be a reach for you it's true; not sure if a re-take is in the cards (?), something to consider. Keep researching schools and options and various programs (especially with 9 years of experience; some at your point in career wind up trying for Part Time programs too as an option). Final thought-- if/when you do apply, aim to pick out one of the 3 potential paths and focus on that for the purposes of the applications. Keep us posted if we can help more!

Hi,
Your work experience sounds solid and nice that you are on the Board of those organizations; would be even stronger if you also volunteer and get more involved with them. The biggest sticking point is your GMAT!! To be close to 50 pts below McCombs average is tough to overcome.... and there will be lots of other applicants with similar backgrounds, but higher scores. Not sure how many times you've taken it but I'd encourage a re-take, tutoring, etc... that is one are you CAN impact as you get ready to apply!

Hello,
Definitely play up your international experience and how that has shaped your view of the world. Within your work experience, brainstorm and identify instances where you've demonstrated leadership and initiative, and gone above and beyond what was expected of you. Your GMAT is a touch low given how competitive McCombs is; not sure if a re-take is an option for best chances? We don't have a lot to go on here (side note we do offer a free 30 minute consultation option with a resume look if that is more useful, www.mbamission.com/consult), but so far so good, just consider whether you have any more points on the table GMAT-wise!
