Can you please evaluate my profile? Here’s a brief description about me-

Indian, Male, 30
GMAT- 720
Undergrad in Mechanical Engineering- 2.75/4
Masters in Supply Chain from Ross- 3.7/4

Founded a manufacturing start-up where I worked for 5 years. Grew the company revenue by more than 600% in five years before I decided to sell it. Reason being wanted to switch in a Operations role in Hi-Tech

Working in Amazon as Operations Manager for the past 2 years. Leading a team of 200 people

Co-curricular- Was the Vice President of a non-profit for 3.5 years, raised more than $60K for the same. Peer Coach at Ross, leadership positions in some clubs but nothing major.

I applied in B-Schools before my masters but got dinged by most. I’m only targeting the following schools-

1. HBS
2. Stanford
3. MIT
4. Haas
5. Kellogg (not sure)

I don’t think I can improve my GMAT any further. My goal is to transition into Product Management after MBA.

Thank You very much!!

Hi there,
Thanks for posting. Your university grades certainly are lacking, but your grad school grades were solid, and I feel you could have some good learning points and stories and perspective to share with your classmates through your startup, your work at Amazon, and the non-profit EC experience. Likely the biggest challenge for you is the caliber of schools you are aiming for. And to a lesser degree, the fact that you do need to emphasize WHY this degree is right for you and why at this point in your career. Harvard, Stanford, and MIT will be a big reach still, because truly they are for most, and you have some challenges to deal with as mentioned. Kellogg and Haas are a bit more reasonable certainly, but for best odds you could include others in the top 15 or so with slightly higher acceptance rates. Be sure to work hard on your applications and school research and plan well ahead if aiming for R1 2018 deadlines. Good luck on the process!
