    Well, a 780 GMAT is going to get you attention right off the bat. Then, add to that your work accomplishments which are very impressive and the fact that you have real tangible industrial experience making things (asiopposed to consulting or banking) and you are in very good shape for MIT. What could derail you at Sloan? A poorly executed application or recommendations that don’t reflect the achievements you cite. Make sure you spend the necessary time thinking through every single question on the app and also make sure you coach your recommenders to make sure they strongly reinforce the key points of your candidacy. See you in Cambridge!
