Hello Everyone,

Can you please recommend good B-Schools based upon the following profile:

-26 yr old male.
-Degree: BS in Mechanical Engineering from a US state school
-Cumulative GPA- 3.11, Last 60 hours GPA: 3.88-
-GMAT score: 760
-GRE score: 325 (167 Q, 158 V, 4.5)
-Work Experience: 2 years work experience out of college (data-engineer at a Big 3 automotive company)

I love coding and data analytics:
1) I am proficient in JS, Python and SQL.
2) I have coded a few games in JS.
3) I have also created a fully functional clone of websites like Yelp.
4) Have also coded a Blockchain (it is essentially a bitcoin clone) in JS and same in Python.
5) Coded a Ethereum smart contract in Python.

Other Courses:
1) Completed Coursera's algorithm course from Stanford (vol 1-4) average grade 99.1%
2) Currently enrolled in MIT's Blockchain course.
3) Completed a free Online course directly offered by Stanford (passing rate was around 15%) in the class.

Can anyone please let me know what are my chances for good B-schools, I am currently focused only on MIT's MBAn (Master's in Business Analytics).

Thanks.

You've definitely got a good shot at the MIT MA program. B-school will be trickier. B-schools don't care at all about coding ability & want to see demonstrated business skills in your work experience. Your post-MBA goals will matter a lot for a b-school app as well. The adcom will want to see what exactly you plan to do in the ST & LT (target title & target firms) as well as what you hope to accomplish & why. Your goals are the foundation for your why MBA argument. Although you've got a strong GMAT your undergrad GPA is on the low end & it sounds like your job may be one where it might be difficult to show business skills and that's definitely something they are looking for. So, without knowing more about you & the specifics of your work experience, I'd say it may make more sense to target additional MA in Data Analytics programs rather than going the MBA route!
