Raj,

I would like to know what exactly you are doing at the power company but I think you are targeting some great programs for an energy focus. And I believe you have a good chance at all three schools. You don't have to take your GMAT again but was that your first try? Is there any chance you could raise to a 730 plus (could help with Duke)?

Maybe also look at Ross, as they have strong finance placement and some growing energy/green energy focus.

I don't normally invite folks to contact me for private consulting work on these forums but I did help an Indian applicant with a related profile and energy story get into Duke last season. So let me know if you need more formal help.

Hey there,

That is a great list of schools and Ross is a fantastic addition Alex - they have a strong energy and sustainability program. Another program making investments in that field is Goizueta. I will caveat this by saying it's a smaller program with a more regional network but there are energy opportunities throughout the SE and they are definitely worth a look.

If you have any questions - don't hesitate to ask!
