Hi there,

I was wondering if someone could help evaluate my profile and suggest any target schools? I'm looking at NYU part-time or potentially a full-time program.
I'm still trying to get a sense of where I stand. Would really appreciate it--thanks in advance!


- 28 / Asian/ Male

Stats
- 3.2 GPA Industrial Engineering which is honors at my school (Top 5 Engineering school, Top 10 public school, number 1 ranked major in US)
- GPA showed improvement the last 2 years
- Certificate in Finance at same university with 3.8 GPA (5 courses)
- Shooting for a 700+ GMAT

Work
- 3 years operations experience at a top manufacturing company (ie GE, Caterpillar, etc) from a Fortune 75 company (completed rotational program)
- 2 years operations experience at a startup in NY that was acquired and was laid off (promoted once)
- Experience managing teams of over 60 employees
- 2 employment gaps (3 months and 5 months respectively) // the first was my decision to move to a new city, the other was due to getting laid off after company was acquired

Personal
- Currently involved in a 3 year volunteer program for high school students (requires 3-4 hour time commitment per month)

Hi cookingthunder!

While overall your GPA will be on the lower end, schools will definitely review your transcript and see the upward trend. And they will also consider the demanding nature of your major and overall quality of your school. But still, a strong GMAT showing will be important for you.

As far as work experience goes, sounds like an interesting mix of big company vs. startup that might make for some good essay examples. And the large team management experience is great! Don't worry too much about the employment gaps, those are fairly small gaps, and schools will understand that sometimes working at a startup can be tumultuous. Do plan to write an Optional Essay explaining those job transitions.

Here is a good post on our blog to look over on considerations for a part-time MBA:
https://www.mbamission.com/blog/2017/02 ... ime-mba-4/

I think your GMAT score will be a factor too...top full-time programs are going to have averages around 720+ whereas top part-time programs have averages in the high 600s. So you may want to decide once you know your score.

Let me know your post-MBA goals, and I can advise a little better on target schools.

Thanks!
Kate
