I think you have a strong profile. Only thing, you might want to not take the chance of applying in R3. However if you are not from over-represented demography, then it might be worth a shot

Thanks. I am an Indian citizen with US green card. Don't know which group I belong to now. My admissions consultant is recommending to go for R3 and if for some reason I can't get in, we will apply again in R1, as R1 in 2020 will be my last shot at it.

It benefits the admission counsellor, doesn't it. He has nothing to lose with R3.

Hello all, thanks for taking the time to read my profile and provide guidance and feedback. I am interested in applying for UT McComb's Part-time Evening MBA program in Austin. Much thanks for the help and support!

About Me
23 year old caucasian male with 1.5 years of work experience (by the time I intend to begin school in January 2021, I will have 3 years of work experience).

GMAT
Overall: 670
Q: 45
V: 37

Undergrad Information
BBA in Finance from a Texas university
GPA: 3.86 (graduated Magna Cum Laude; 5x President's List)

Work Experience
I have spent the first year and a half of my professional career working for Valero Energy Corporation at their corporate HQ. I am a Business Analyst in the Market Analysis and strategic price forecasting functions. Through this experience and through my network at Valero, I could get good letters of recommendation.

Extracurriculars
I am currently very involved with my church. I am part of the Production team that coordinates the worship and sermon for the weekend services. In addition to that, I have volunteered with 2 organizations that strive to spread the word of God to the homeless and provide them meals, clothing and shelter during inclement weather. I also volunteer at the Valero Texas Open golf tournament.


As I said in the opening, I am very hoping to receive admission into the Part-time Evening MBA program at UT Austin's McCombs. I would greatly appreciate any feedback and advice heading into the application process (Keep in mind, I won't be applying until next Spring for 2021 intake). Thanks y'all!

Hello,

Please evaluate my profile. Thanks in advance.

Background/Nationality:
27 male/married/Caucasion

Undergrad Information:
Top 40 National University/Top 10 Public University
GPA: 3.1 (upward trend - 3.45 last 2 Years)
Major: Business/Economics

GMAT:
Currently studying. Practice test (ice cold): 570
Targeting 700+

Work Experience:
3.5 Yrs at national multifamily real estate development company. Started as an intern, hired full-time after 6-weeks as an Assistant Project Manger acting as Owner's Representative on large multi-family project interfacing with contractor, investors, design consultants, and city officials. Promoted to Analyst, assisting with pre-development activities on major development projects. Received exposure to entitlement, permitting and finance aspects of real estate development. Promoted to Associate, lead on two development projects. Managed design team/consultants assisted in negotiation of transaction/venture agreements, managed and delegated to analyst.

1 Year at regional family general contracting business (Design/Build). Project management duties.

Post MBA Goals:
After undergrad I specifically targeted real estate development positions with the intention of eventually bringing that experience/business strategy to the family business of general contracting. I have since discovered that I lack the tools/experience to do so effectively, specifically the finance/investment thesis that exists in commercial real estate (this is more nuanced, but for the sake of brevity I've boiled it down to this). My post MBA goal, is to obtain a finance position in a facet of the commercial real estate industry that provide the necessary experience to successfully integrate this strategy into the family business.

Hi Kangan,

1. you have good career progression. 3 promotions in 3 years is noteworthy. Backing up your good / above average work through your recommenders will help further.
2. The international experience should help if you can prove that it helped you open up your personality in some ways, that has made you a better professional overall.
3. You seem to be doing well for yourself, so there has to be a larger purpose in life, that is your carer goals and the need for an MBA. You have not mentioned these here in your profile description.
4. You don't seem to have an extra-curriculars in the recent past- that's not desirable. The FB certification and the power certification won't count as extracurriculars, so this section definitely looks light. Also a certification on sustainable energy does not sound relevant to what you currently do. Is this a recent thing?
5. Lastly, your GMAT can definitely go up by another 20 points atleast.
