Mr. High Aspirations

About Me:

I am a final year Chemical Engineering student from the Indian Institute of Petroleum and Energy, an institute at par with IITs and IIMs. I’m someone who is really passionate about the environment and energy. That’s why I focussed my research on energy conservation and air pollution. To consolidate my knowledge on the field, I have done internships in the best institutes in the country: IIT Madras and IIM Ahmedabad. I have also done my internship in the United Nations Environment Programme which was a unique opportunity with rich international experience. Apart from my academics and research interests, I’m into writing articles and have served as the Official Article Writer of IIPE. I like to socialize and interact with people, I think this was one of my qualities that made the General Secretary for the student body in IIPE.

  • Stratus Admissions Counseling Odds Assessment: 15%

    Hi Mr. High Aspirations, This is Donna Bauman with Stratus Admissions and I congratulate you on your accomplishments from college. Your research about energy and the environment is very impressive—and we need smart people thinking about how to help our environment. In some ways you do have a background that could be impressive at Kellogg for deferred admit programs in that you have excellent grades and a STEM background. However, your GRE score is on the softer side for a deferred admit option. I would encourage you to take this again if you can before you submit. However, I think if you have a strong leadership story in your Kellogg essay that will also be helpful. If you are open to looking at other deferred …
