Mr. Good Luck Bud

About Me:

I am a 28-year-old male from Canada matriculating in September 2023. I am a project manager for a big $$ portfolio in the Canadian oil sands. I was a structural engineer for 3 years responsible for a huge plant (3000+ people, working on a single conveyor belt). I started a non-profit mentoring service for new grads and professional newcomers to Canada.


Undergrad School: University of Alberta

Undergrad Major: Structural Engineering

GPA: 3.27

GMAT: 710

Age: 28,  Ethnicity: Asian or Indian

Extracurriculars: Ladderly (ladderly.ca)- Founder of a nonprofit that bridges the mentorship gap between industry professional and students/new grads/ professional newcomers (just launched). | Youth Mentor (since 2009) - creating a safe space where they can explore their capacities and personal interests, and discuss personal or academic topics with guidance and support.

Work History:

Title: Project Engineer

Industry: Power / Energy

Company: Top Firm

Length of Employment: 1 yr, 1 mos

Title: Structural Engineer

Industry: Power / Energy

Company: Top Firm

Length of Employment: 3 yrs, 6 mos

Big Life Wins:

– Completed high-risk fiber optic project with very large consequences – the worst case was >$100M in damages to a running oil sands facility. Interfaced with over 100 employees, managed 20 folks with Sr. management involved, executed flawlessly, and received a lot of praise.
– I was appointed structural lead of a 3000+ facility at 24 (way above my class).

Post MBA Goal:

I’m hoping to jump into operations consulting with an MBB or prod-ops at a tech firm (focus on greenifying/optimization of ops). I really like being thrown into something I know nothing about and asked to solve a problem so these two career paths seemed to be a good fit. I’d really like to end up in the UK (my wife is an EU citizen so it’s easier to work there) but if I got into MIT we’d be willing to move to the UK after the 2-year program. I’m hoping that even though my numbers are on the lower side – my experience could bring a unique perspective to the school I get into.
