Hey Stacy, please let me know what you think. I'll be turning 29 the October of my first year in business school. Although I've had several projects that have required me to lead engineering contractors, I have not gotten officially promoted and have not been in charge of anyone on my team.

I have delegated work plenty of times and have managed projects both within and without my company, but I am not sure if this counts as "leadership experience" because that can be so subjective.

Asian/Pacific Islander
Male, 28 years old at matriculation
GMAT: 730

BS Computer Engineering GPA: 3.4 at a regionally ranked school

4.5 Years, Energy/Green Engineering for a Fortune 100 energy company

Over 130 Hours per year of church leadership. Mentor and teacher of over 25 inner city teens from different backgrounds. I had a missions trip overseas, but it only lasted one week.

I was president of a professional society during college with over 250+ members and I made a significant impact on the school's engineering program and student's careers opportunities.

Target schools: Booth, Yale, UT Austin, Columbia, and H/S/W

Target Post-MBA: Energy/Consulting

Hi Talino,

Career progression and leadership experience are both factors that MBA admissions teams will consider. I recommend you read this case study of a candidate with limited work experience who was accepted into Harvard Business School: ... ies/case4/

I also recommend you read this case study of an engineer. The applicant pool for engineers is large and competitive, so it is important that you look to differentiate yourself in your application. ... ies/case2/

Hope this was of help.
