Hello,

I'll be applying to B-schools this summer for entrance in 2018 august. Post MBA I hope to work at a management consultancy firm for a while before ultimately starting my own venture. Please find below the summary of my profile. I'd be obliged if you could evaluate my chances.

-Indian male, 26 years age at time of application
-GMAT 760
-B. Tech, Civil Engineering, IIT Kanpur (9.1/10), 2014
Academic excellence awards
Elected member of student senate, part of organisation team of university technical festival, student guide, placement cell core team member
-Intership, Schlumberger, India (Jun'13-Jul'13)
-Field Engineer Trainee, Schlumberger, India (10 months, Aug'14-June'15)
Received 11 weeks training at company facility in Abu Dhabi
Led teams of 4 at oil rigs for various oil and gas clients in India providing drilling and measurement services
Received appreciation letter from client
-Field Engineer, Schlumberger, India (12 months, July'15 to June'16)
Received 2 week training on high-volume drilling and measurement technology at company facility in USA
Only person with formal training in high volume technology in India
Led the effort for successful application of high-volume technology in India, through training personnel, service quality interventions and operational support
Assisted the Field Service manager for North East India with tool and personnel planning and client interfacing for project involving operations at over 10 oil rigs
-Senior Associate at a non-profit organisation advising the largest national political party in India on strategy for assembly elections at the largest state in India (Aug'16-present)
Led a team of five in conceptualising and building a volunteer organisation premised on support for the party's national leader/face. Current strength of the organisation is about 1.6 million pan India (about 25 at each zip code level in the state) and growing. Volunteers used for spreading party's agenda and conducting door-to-door campaign during state elections apart from other activities
Part of a five-member team that set-up and ran operations at the election war-room at the party headquarter in the state.
Coordinated efforts with the party's state vice-president for setting up teams at each of the 0.14 million polling booths in the state
Assisted in scheduling campaigns in different regions of the state based on analysis of key parameters
Prepared a customised playbook for each of the 403 candidates in the state, with advisory on different central and local campaigns along with various constituency specific data
Embedded in a battleground district with 7 constituencies during the last leg of the campaign to assist the candidates' campaign team
I can't state the result of the election on this forum since that would divulge the party's identity. We are currently devising strategy for upcoming elections in another state

Should get LORs from my current direct manager and my direct manager from Schlumberger. Before college I earned a senior diploma in tabla (classical Indian music instrument) with distinction. Apart from this not much on the extra curricular front. Both my jobs required long working hours all 7 days of the week.

I am planning to apply to Harvard, Columbia and Yale for entry in August'18. Thanks in advance.

Hi there -
Thanks for reaching out for a free evaluation. In lieu of writing a lengthy reply, I'd rather we connect via Skype/phone so we may have a real dialogue and you can ask me questions as I give you an assessment. Additionally, I will be able to offer you a much more robust assessment if I am able to ask you more questions. If doing a free consult via skype/phone interests you, please contact me directly at kathrynlucas@squareoneprep.com.

I look forward to hearing from and speaking with you soon. Thanks again for reaching out.
