Hi guys!

Could you please help me in evaluating my profile and suggesting which schools I am good for?

740 GMAT, Undergrad degree - Beng in Chemical Engineering (2015), GPA 3.79/4.00 from the best university in Kazakhstan (Nazarbayev University, newly opened, english- speaking, more on nu.edu.kz website).

Immediately after school joined Schlumberger, working outside of home country in Russia with training camps in Abu Dhabi. Worked there for 1.5 years and was promoted from Field Engineer Trainee to Field Engineer and later Command Center Engineer positions. Apart from major responsibilities was appointed as quality steering committee chair - got the best quality steering committee chair award.

Later on, decided to return to Kazakhstan and joined Eurasian Resource Group (transnational mining company) as a Lead Analyst responsible for analysis of procurement, sales and investment activities. Was promoted to Senior analyst position after 6 month and still work here (total will be a year in December).

Passed TOEFl Ibt 116/120. Started passing CIMA examinations for chartered global management accountant designation.

THe major decision factor for me is the opportunity to get full scholarship + living cause my salary in current position is 24k a year (documentally proven, could be presented to the schools).

Any feedback will be highly appreciated, thank you in advance!

Hey AlibekYes

Thanks for posting. Exciting stuff here -- we don't see people like you very often! Kazakhstan, great GPA, 740, Schlumberger/Eurasian...a great combo. You mention the importance of a scholarship so the two schools I highly recommend applying to are UCLA, which has been very generous with money in the past, and also Arizona-Carey. (Read this about Carey: http://fortune.com/2015/10/15/asu-free-mba/) HBS has also been know to be generous with money and I think they will like Schlumberger/Eurasian on your CV if you can deliver on the tradition of leadership they look for. (They also tend to like mining. But really it depends more on the type of work you do and your recs.) CBS has a special scholarship you can apply for as an international student but I haven't seen a full-ride. More like $25k. Georgetown however may be generous.

I sometimes get a little worried about procurement roles but I assume your type of procurement is in the multi-million and possibly even billion dollar territory. Just make sure you make that clear and it shines on your CV. We don't want them to think you're a pencil pusher.

Old table on scholarship money at many schools if it helps...go for the ones where the highest percentage of students get money...https://poetsandquants.com/2014/11/20/m ... schools/2/

Hope that helps!
Krista
