Gender: Male
Nationality: Pakistan
Age: 25

Education and Background:
- Born in Pakistan but grew up in Bahrain (till High School)
- Received full scholarship to go to boarding school in Canada
- Went to Uni in the UK (Top 20 in the World)
- Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2nd Class Honours (Lower)) - GPA converts to 3.01 on the WES calculator. Essentially went through a bit of a rough patch in the middle of the degree but rebounded strongly towards the end. Will address this in the optional essay.

Work Experience:
- Global Project Coordinator for large Industrial Automation company in Tokyo. Essentially technical sales to customers (Big Oil and renowned EPC contractors).
- Currently 26 months. Will be 40 months by matriculation.
- Studying Japanese. Will have official intermediate proficiency certification at time of application.

GMAT: Taking on Sunday. Hoping for something in the 700-730 range. Practice test average has been 720.

Target Industry: Tech Consulting at Big 4 (Dream would be BCG but I know it's difficult)

I'm hoping I can leverage my international experience and a strong GMAT (hopefully) to make up for that GPA.

Target Schools: Foster, McDonough, Mccombs, Owen, Mcgill, Rotman
Reach: Goizueta, Johnson

I've not really spoken to anyone about my MBA aspirations so I would love to get your opinion about my profile and my chances at the schools above.

Hi Dreamer111,

Thank you very much for your post. How did the GMAT go on Sunday?

(That will provide important / added context for purposes of sharing my overall thoughts.)
