Hi everyone,

Kindly evaluate my profile and let me know if my profile is suitable for the schools I'm applying to.

1. Profile : Indian / 25 years / Mechanical engineer
2. Work Experience : 4 year. Currently employed with Daikin (Japanese MNC) as a Sr. Engineer-Project management and leading a team of 6 people to manage 50+ dealer/distributors each having a staff of 10+ engineers.
Associated with 2 Green building projects. Have been promoted once in 1.5 years in my current company.
Previous employer : SEIPL
Was amongst the top 3 employees during the one month training organized by Company. As a result was transferred to the corporate office to be a part of technically most demanding and company's most profitable division, Clean room application of air conditioners(worked for multinationals like Ranbaxy, USV etc)
Promoted once during my stay in SEIPL
3. GMAT score : 710 (Verbal - 35 , Quant - 50 , IR 7)
4. TOEFL scores : awaited
5. Percentage :71.4% (Hold a B.E Honor from Panjab University. Honors degree is generally awarded to only 5-6% of the students in our university)
6. Extra Curricular : President of a club, head of mechanical wing of another during college.
7.Achievements : Stood first in state in National Science Olympiad. Represented state in a national level quiz contest
Social work - Active Member of a NGO

I want to start applying in the early rounds.
Does being a Non IT engineer put me at some advantage(compared to IT guys) or all Indian engineers are considered as same ..

Hi there,

Thanks for posting. While you aren't part of the Indian IT applicant pool, you're still part of the very large Indian engineering applicant pool ;). So standing out from the crowd and highlighting skills less-commonly-thought-of for engineers (such as people management, leadership, communication skills) will help you differentiate from that crowd.

I assume the schools you are applying to are the ones listed in your profile? As I didn't see you list any in your post. You could have a shot at those programs if you are able to successfully demonstrate what I mentioned above, and ALSO explain WHY you need the MBA, and how it fits into your short and long term career goals. All of that must make sense and help make the case for why YOU should be accepted over other competitive applicants. ;)

Hope that helps, keep us posted on q's and your progress!
