Allright good sir, you seem to have a preeeeetty good work experience, although you do realize you are coming from a somewhat overrepreseted group. But nothing you can do about that then :) As for your schools, both INSEAD and HEC seem cool choices. IMD is probably a very very long shot for you. They also tend to take older candidates who already have management experience.

As for which US schools, I'd start looking at Johnson, NYU, Anderson, UNC, Austin, Wharton (a bit of a long shot, but its up your alley)

Hi Abhimanyu14,

Thanks for sharing your profile with us!

Based on the information that you gave us, two main questions come to mind:

(1) While it's great in some ways that you're open to different post-MBA career paths right now, it's important that you narrow your focus and articulate one specific path (both short- and long-term) in your application essays. AdComs are making bets on the applicants who they think have the best potential for future career success, and to do that, they need to know what your future career path is likely to be. It's ok if there's some open-endedness in your stated goals (after all, a good MBA program opens new doors), but you definitely need to be able to explain what you want to achieve in your career and why YOU are uniquely qualified to achieve it. Just saying that you're looking for "an exciting job" won't be enough, unfortunately!

(2) Your experience at ProTech Solutions sounds intriguing. This is a company that you co-founded with your brother? I'd want to know much more detail about how you formed and grew the company, what your role / contributions have been, and how you've grown as a leader and business person over the years. Relatively few applicants to top MBA programs already have entrepreneurial experience under their belts, so depending on your stories here, this could be an important differentiator for you.

I hope this is helpful -- feel free to reach out to us at if we can be of further help!

I am a 24-year-old Australian halfway through my final year of undergraduate studies with the intention to complete an MBA through an M7 deferred program. Due to my expected graduation date, I am eligible to apply to program deadlines in 2021. I believe that my GMAT score and essay(s) will ‘make or break’ my application. I appreciate any feedback on my profile and would like to hear opinions on what would be an appropriate GMAT score to target. My current train of thought is minimum --> 710, target --> 730, dream --> 750.


Work experience:

  • Big 3 German automotive manufacturer (Volkswagen, BMW, Mercedes)

      6-month internship in Germany

  • Prestigious boutique German automotive manufacturer

      14-month internship + thesis in Germany.

      Only (possibly first) non-EU resident at the company

Extra curriculars:

  • Founding president of the mechanical engineering student association

      450+ members in six months

      Organised an on-campus industry expo with 20+ companies and 800 student registrations

      Company Q&As, industry visits, skill workshops, etc.

  • Elected undergraduate representative of 12,000+ students on the school’s academic board

      Hold monthly academic board meetings with the pro-vice chancellor and other high-ranking school officials. The academic board establishes the structure of academic programs and discusses school matters. There are a lot of NDAs!

  • In2Science mentor

      Mentor a classroom of low socioeconomic high school students to increase their engagement, confidence, and aspirations in STEM.

  • Student-Staff consulting representative

      Consult with my peers to identify program-related opportunities for improvement and present those issues at student-staff meetings.

  • Founded a side-business on a shoestring budget

  • Golden Key International Honour Society

  • Formula SAE

Undergrad school/major:

  • Location - Australia

  • QS 250, QS Engineering 100, QS Top 20 50-Under-50

  • Mechanical Engineering (Honours) | Business Management

      Will graduate with two degrees.

      Received several awards.

      Featured on university promotional material.

  • December 2020 graduation date

Other education/coursework:

  • Certificate III in Music Industry


  • White

  • Australian


  • Male


Cold GMAT Scores:

  • MGMAT#1 620 (Q40 V35)

      Taken 23/12/2019 (Did not begin to study yet)

  • GMATPrep#1 650 (Q42 V38)

      Taken 12/04/2020 (Did two weeks of study beforehand and stopped after)

  • Potential test dates:December 20’, January 21’, February 21’

Undergrad GPA:

  • 4.0 / 4.0

      3 subjects remaining.


Goal of MBA:

  • [Short-term] To move away from traditional engineering roles and into management style roles particularly in NPO start-ups. By being accepted into a deferred program I will have the confidence after undergrad to take professional risks, whether that is to begin/grow a start-up or apply myself in a smaller boutique firm. Furthermore, I will have the support of the school’s network to help accelerate my professional progression in the period before matriculation.

  • [Long-term] My longer-term vision is to make a positive impact in Australia. Currently Australia has a large dependence on its mining and farming exports however both industries are in decline which will ultimately damage the economy. The automotive industry was once in this position, unfortunately the industry succumbed to the downward trend and manufacturing has since been abandoned. My goal is to bring back the automotive industry to Australia in the form of renewable and sustainable practises thus contributing jobs, innovative technology, and pride to the country.


International exposure and languages:

  • Two months in Tanzania

  • Two years in Germany

      Can speak German at an elementary workplace level which I learnt in my own time.


  • Aim to work for 3-4 years before matriculating

      Assuming that I am accepted into a deferred program.

  • Will be ~27 years old at time of matriculation

Essay discussion points:

  • Aspirations to lead and make a positive impact.

      Unfortunately Fortunately I have no ‘sob stories’.

  • MBA goals

  • Time spent in Germany

UGRD Engineering/Business, Melbourne Australia
