Candidate:

Mr. Energy Innovation

About Me:

I’m an engineer at a large Exploration and Production company (oil and gas industry) where I have worked in a variety of roles since undergraduate. I’m passionate about energy, and I’m pursuing an MBA to supplement my engineering background and facilitate my transition into innovative and less carbon-intensive parts of the energy industry.

Details:

Undergrad School: Top 20

Undergrad Major: Mechanical Engineering

GPA: 3.9

GMAT: 790

Age: 27,  Ethnicity: White

Extracurriculars: I was President of the Club Baseball team at my undergraduate institution, I continued to support the team as an alum, and I am an active member of the alumni group.

Work History:

Title: Facilities Engineer

Industry: Power / Energy

Company: Fortune 500

Length of Employment: 5 yrs, 1 mos

Big Life Wins:

I led a multidisciplinary team responsible for resolving critical problems with two new $100MM facilities which had publicly stated expected in-service dates. The short term and long-term solutions I designed and led the implementation of prevented $12MM of lost revenue every month.

Post MBA Goal:

I would like to work on implementing technologies and ideas that have the opportunity to transform how we produce, store, and/or consume energy. I can see myself working on a startup, joining an early-stage firm, or working for a Venture Capital firm focused on investing in energy-related technologies.

Schools:

Target School: Stanford GSB

Status: Open

Considering: MIT Sloan, Harvard, Chicago Booth

    Hi Mr Energy Innovation, Kristen from MBA Prep School here. As a former MIT Sloan adcom, I felt compelled to comment on your profile because you have so many strengths as an applicant. I think your target schools will have a hard time overlooking that 3.9 GPA in engineering and 790 GMAT (I can’t blame them). Add to that your career progression in oil and gas with some quantifiable impact and you have quite the well-rounded package. While I like your extracurricular involvement in college, it may be less relevant being 5 years out of school. I don’t think your lack of civic engagement will really hurt you given the other strengths you are presenting, but it is the one area you might think about …

    Based on the GMAT and GPA, clearly an intelligent individual. But nothing in the story that really stands out from the pack, when considering a Stanford applicant. MIT, HBS, and Booth odds are much higher.
