Mr. Land Management

About Me:

My work focuses on joint ventures, acreage trades, and divestitures transactions throughout the Permian Basin. I’ve been with one large exploration and production company the entire way, and have managed to survive macro-scale changes and layoffs in the industry throughout that time.


Undergrad School: Univ. of Tulsa

Undergrad Major: Finance/Energy Management

GPA: 3.85

GMAT: 760

Age: 30,  Ethnicity: Hispanic or Latino

Other Degree/Certification: MS in Applied Economics

School Name: Johns Hopkins


Work History:

Title: Senior Landman

Industry: Power / Energy

Company: Fortune 500

Length of Employment: 7 yrs

Big Life Wins:

Education has opened a lot of doors for me. I’m the first in my family to go to college allowing me to land a great job after graduation. In addition, I was able to get a master’s degree while working full time in order to prepare for more cross-functional assignments both in my current role or in new roles in the future.

Post MBA Goal:

My goal is to transition out of Land Management and into more of a Corporate Strategy or Planning role. I would like for the role to be in-house rather than at a consulting firm.


Target School: Tuck

Status: Open

Considering: Cornell Johnson, Yale, NYU Stern

    Right off the bat, let me just tell you I have great admiration for what you have already accomplished. As a first gen college grad, you have really excelled at the choices you’ve made. Your 3.85 GPA is terrific and your 760 GMAT would make you–as a first gen Hispanic–jump out of any MBA applicant pool. So would your master’s degree from Johns Hopkins. In your seven years at a Fortune 500 power/energy company, I would expect that you have won a promotion or two. That is important to your application. If so, you have a strong story to tell. It’s rare that a 30-year-old MBA applicant would work seven years for only one company but I don’t think anyone would hold that against you …

    Why are you aiming so low? HBS or GSB aren't likely, but you can look at Wharton and the rest of the M7
