    Wow. Congrats. You’ve done really well, particularly for a first generation college grad. In fact, you have just crushed it. A 4.0 in a difficult major, mechanical engineering, a 750 GMAT score that is 20 points above Wharton’s median, an Ivy League master’s degree, and meaningful jobs at both a Fortune 500 and a startup, with high performance ratings to boot.
