could you take a look at my profile and give me a feedback regarding my application?

My intention is to apply for the class of 2021. So I didnt take the GMAT yet. My target is 710/720.

Dark-skinned (it is important?)
Age 30 (in 2019)
Married with son

- Public High School
- Grades 7,5/10 (Production Engineering - not top school)
- Grades 7,0/10 (Civil Engineering - not top school)
** During all my graduation I had to work full time at the same time.
** This is very common in Brazil when you have to work to pay the university.
- English course in London (1 month)

Work Experience:
- 14 years by expected matriculation (I started to work full time when I was 16 y/o)
- 2 years exp in accounting firm
** 1x promoted (office assistant -> adm assistant)
- 12 years in the same company (Automotive Industry)
** 4x promoted (Intern -> Trainee -> Technician -> Engineer -> Specialist)
** Right now I am expatriated in Europe (Customer Support - interface between customer, development center and production plant in Africa. Several trips to Africa)
** Experience in Mexico. (Responsible Engineer - living there for 3 months and several trips Brazil -> Mexico during 1 year)
** Management responsibilities (Team Leader and deputy supervisor)
** Mentor for new employees (in Brazil, Mexico and Europe)

- teacher volunteer for primary students (3 years)

Post MBA:
General Management, Project Manager, Consulting.

I am very confusing which b-school would fit my profile.
The dream schools are: Booth, Sloan, Hass, Kellog (dream big).
These are the schools that I think I have a chance but working hard on essays/gmat score: Fuqua, Ross, Darden, Kenan-Flager, Mccombs (for these schools I think the chance that I get a very good scholarship 50%+ is minimum).
Safe schools: Tepper, Emory, Mendoza, Kelley.

What do you think about all these schools?
Unfortunately the scholarship would be important in my decision due my family situation (I dont want to graduate with huge debt, unless from dream schools :grin: )

My first job was in the lowest hierarchy. So I have a lot of years of WE but the relevant one started after my first graduation (technician -> engineer), so when I apply in 2018, I would have 7/8 years of relevant work exp. To be honest I dont know if this is positive point for the applican because shows a lot persistence and working hard since very young or shows a lot of years of exp without reach a management position.

This is the reason that I want to do an MBA, to reach a management position and change my career.

Thanks a lot!!

Thanks for sharing your profile. I think given your work exp and academic stats (GMAT/GPA), the top schools on your list will be challenging for you. The others give you a more realistic chance. I would say discussing aspects of your past(working from a young age, dark skinned Brazilian and all that comes with that) into your overall story. That could be a key way for you to stand out as well particularly for the top schools on your list
