Hi streetcode,

Thanks for reaching out. I think you meet the profile for the EEO option. I especially like the strong technical/coding experience you have (important for product management), plus you've had some great team leadership roles already too. Keep that up.

Your Btech grades are pretty good, not stellar, but your GMAT is above ISB's average so hopefully that will make up for it.

I think the things that should be on your to-do list are:
1) Gaining as much early leadership experience as possible (in jobs/internships and also in extracurricular activities)
2) Rounding out your technical skill set with other "softer" skills, like strong communication (so the Toastmasters idea is a good one)
3) Continuing to research and gain exposure to product management and developing a strong network within the tech community (professional organizations, conferences, etc.)

Lastly, why assume average essays and recommendations?? It is within your control to make these awesome, especially with the essays!

Good luck,
Kate
