Hello everyone,

I would like some expert comments on my candidacy at top 15 MBA colleges in USA. Dream Schools: HAAS and STANFORD

Brief overview:

Education: Integrated Masters of Technology (Geophysics). IIT Roorkee - 5 year course
GPA: 6.4
GMAT: 710
TOEFL: Soon

Work Experience: Total 4+ years
Job 1 - Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory ( Aug, 2013- Feb, 2016)

I started as a Student Assistant and final title before leaving the job was Sr. Research Associate. Had three promotions in a span of 2.5 years.
Most of my work was on Geothermal Energy. My work involved product/service development, project handling, business development etc,. I worked on project funded by CHEVRON, Calpine Corporation (Leading geothermal company in the world), EDC, Phillippines ( World's second largest geothermal produced company in the world), Department of Energy (USA), etc,. Collaborative work across different organizations and universities was a major component.

Job 2 - StartUp in India (failed)
worked on an exploration product/service for geothermal. Presented our work and reports to multiple government organizations in India. Did a proof of concept study for Oil and natural gas corporation India. We were not able to generate any revenue. After a year decided to shut it down .

Job 3: consultant (contract - 3 months)
Geothermal Energy

Job4: Internship: Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, USA (3 months)

Extra curricular
- In college was majorly involved in cultural and sports events organizing. Represented IIT in FOOTBALL and Pole vault at INTER IIT SPORTS Competition. Was a member of CHOREOGRAPHY section at college. I have always been involved in sports. I love outdoor activities like hiking, kayaking, rafting etc. Have done plenty of hikes in India as well as in USA.
- Didn't get extra time for community work while I was at college and while working in USA.

Post MBA Goals

Short Term:
Want to work in Clean energy Industry . Gain more knowledge and experience and make more connections.

Long term Goal:
Want to start an organization in India promoting technology development in Clean Tech, collaborating with government, Universities and other research institutions all around the world. More like a social entrepreneurship

Top MBA colleges priority: HAAS School of Business and Stanford as they are well known for their initiative in Clean energy.

All suggestions are welcome. I am really looking forward to it.
The other question I have is that should I take GMAT again? I did mess up the test. I was scoring more than this in gmat preps and I am confident that I can score around 740 in next attempt.

Thanks
Ankit

Hi Ankit, I recommend that you post this in the Ask Admissions Consultants thread. This Thread is not for profile evaluations and definitely not for profile evaluations other schools. I'll be happy to give you some feedback over there.
