Hello, I'm looking for an honest profile evaluation request as I'm starting my applications for b-school. Profile below:

Started out in Software Sales at Experian and quickly moved up the ranks, promoted 2 times in 1 year and 10 months. Then went to Oracle to do enterprise software sales and pre-sales consulting, only stayed for 10 months because a partner at IBM then offered me a full time consulting job in their financial services practice doing enterprise finance technology implementations after I partnered with them on a project while i was at Oracle (salary was almost double and it was doing full time consulting which was my goal). I've been at IBM for 2 years now, one promotion from senior consultant to Manager.

Hi there,

Impressive career progression! If you love your industry and are doing well / happy to move up, then it sounds like a part time program is ideal for you. Your GMAT is in the 80% range for most programs, but below the average; so as you probably know, it would help to improve your score. The other big part of the part time application is demonstrating why this track is right for you, and what you're going to do with it. PT adcom want to see that your company is supportive (that you've taken steps to ensure that you'll have time for all of this), and that you have fairly concrete plans because career-switching / exploration is not as easy to do in a part time program.

That said, it sounds like you have nice experience, extracurricular leadership and a good GPA; so I think you'll be in the running for the programs you're looking at. Go visit, talk to the admissions office / current students, and do your research so that each school's application is customized and makes clear why that specific program is right for you.

Hope that helps!
