Hello,

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.

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


Education:
- 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)


Extra-Curricular:
- teacher volunteer for primary students (3 years)

Post MBA:
General Management, Project Manager, Consulting.

B-Schools:
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: )

Note:
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!!

Hey dude!
Good to hear from you!
Well we work with lots of Brazilians, so I might have some perspective for you here.

I think that the toughest thing you have here is that you have so-so grades from so-so schools, and that your progress has been on the technical side of things. What is very positive is that you have a TON of international experience in a good industry. And that you are a team leader.

I cannot make any comment about your school list really without a GMAT. All I will say is that you should really have at least a 730 to apply to the schools on your list. But I can also say that you might want to change up your list a bit - there are some schools that don't make natural sense, and some schools are missing (like Ross, INSEAD) that I would have suggested.

Anyhow to really dig in and figure out what schools you can and should apply to, we really need a GMAT score.

Best,
Jon Frank

Hi JonAdmissionado ,

Thanks for your reply!
Supposing that I get the GMAT score around 710/720, do you think that I can be admited with scholarship at Fuqua, Ross, Darden, Kenan-Flager, Mccombs or Emory?

With scholarship, it is hard to predict. But I think if that is your list, you will have a good shot at admission.

But before finalizing, better to get your actual score ;)

Best,
