    Hi Mr. Global Graduate Scheme, Kristen from MBA Prep School here. As a former MIT Sloan adcom, I like a lot of what I see in your profile. Although you are a member of an oversaturated population within the MBA applicant pool (male Indian engineers), you have the credentials necessary to rise to the top. First, you attended an IIT (definitely one of the first criteria adcoms look at in order to weed out Indian applicants) and did well in MechE. Your extracurricular involvement also serves as a nice differentiator; I’m curious if you have found ways to contribute to your community post-grad (whether within a company committee or on your own).

    There is little doubt of your formidable accomplishments. Add to that your undergraduate education at a top five IIT, your 750 GMAT and the fact that you have achieved so much at a manufacturing firm–which naturally supplies fewer young professionals to MBA applicant pools–and I would say LBS would be hardpressed to turn you away. Yes, as a male Indian engineer you still fall into the most over-represented part of the applicant pool. But I think your big life wins take you out of the pile. Good luck to you! Well done.
