Please help to evaluate my profile - asian female engineer

Post Sat Dec 03, 2016 10:31 pm
-Asian female
-Canadian
-Target Schools: Rotman (UofT), Shulich (York)
-GPA 3.1 in Chemical Engineering
-GMAT: 650 (V34/Q46, IR- 7 (82%), AWA - 6)
-5+ years of experience working in oil & gas
-Acquired Professional Engineer (P.Eng) designation
-Hoping to use my technical background supplemented with the knowledge and network I acquire through the MBA program to move into a Business Development role.
-Secondly, one of my great passions is providing mentorship. Especially to empower other young women to take interest in STEM disciplines with the knowledge that if they wanted to transition into business industries or management positions in the future, an MBA is a powerful supplement to the various STEM disciplines.

I am a bit hesitant due to my lower than average GPA and GMAT; is it necessary to retake GMAT for my target schools?

Thanks very much!

Hey there,
Great to hear from you!
I don't think you MUST retake the GMAT for your target schools, but yes, it would help, and maybe even a lot.

It's a biiit hard to evaluate your chances, because I don't yet have a good sense of what you have done at work, or of how much leadership experience you have. But feel free to tell me more!

Or just fill out our form a Free Consultation: http://admissionado.com/free-consultation/mba-consultation/?utm_source=btg&utm_medium=forum&utm_campaign=mba_blog

Best,
Jon
