Mr. Navy Submariner

About Me:

I grew up in the Dallas/Fort Worth area of Texas. Since I was in high school, I knew I wanted to work in the alternative energy industry, ironic since I grew up in Oil-Land! That is why I chose to major in nuclear engineering and join the US Navy nuclear workforce. For fun, I play guitar, which has taught me persistence and dedication.

    Hi Mr. Navy Submariner, Julie-Anne Heafey here with mbaMission (and HBS grad). Since you’re an engineer, I’m sure you’ve already calculated the usual odds of success with a Harvard interview – about 50/50. At some schools I’d say the interview is more of one data point among many, but at Harvard it does tend to be more important because of the case method.

So, who better than you to discuss it? It’s hard to give you much higher odds than the norm in this forum since …
