Mr. RAV4 Chemical Engineer

About Me:

I am a chemical engineering graduate with experience in the automotive and pharmaceutical industries. I am a strong proponent of continuous learning, graduating with a dean’s list standing at the University of Toronto.

My parents immigrated to Canada from Poland and established a successful construction business employing over 150 people.


Undergrad School: University of Toronto

Undergrad Major: Chemical Engineering

GPA: 3.62

GMAT: 750

Age: 25,  Ethnicity: White

Extracurriculars: Volunteer Math Tutor for low income students

Work History:

Title: Process Engineer

Industry: Manufacturing

Company: Global

Length of Employment: 2 yrs

Title: Portfolio Management Intern

Industry: Engineering

Company: Fortune 500

Length of Employment: 1 yr

Big Life Wins:

I reduced the scrap defect rate for Toyota’s molded foam seat program from 2.68% to 0.75%, resulting in over $170,000 in annual savings. My engineering solutions made further savings possible as I managed to reach the minimum weight and/or density specification for 10 different product codes resulting in over $300,000 in annual chemical savings.

Post MBA Goal:

I want to an upper management role at an F500 technical operations company (Pfizer, Dow, etc.). I also wish to explore any opportunities available for someone with my background in financial markets at an Investment bank (Goldman Sachs) as I received a business minor in university, having taken several financial engineering courses.


Target School: Columbia

Status: Open

Considering: Chicago Booth, MIT Sloan, Kellogg

    Hi, it’s Nisha from mbaMission. I love the continuous learning mindset, and your parents’ success story.

Those achievements, alongside your strong academics, will be viewed very favorably by the admissions committee.

    The admissions committee, however, will also want to understand the motivations behind your career goals. I recommend doing some reflection to narrow down your desired path.

    Hi Mr. RAV4 Chemical Engineer, Melisa here from Stratus Admissions. Sounds like you’ve made some strong impacts during your time at Toyota – and maybe have some pharma experience as well. And you have strong stats which are a great addition to your profile. As you are pulling together your story for your applications, you are going to want to dig deeper into your post-MBA goals. While both paths may make sense for you – they are different enough that you will not be able to tell why on both sides. Adcom is evaluating your ability to use an MBA to change into these goals – and will have expected you to do some of that research before applying. I would imagine you can visualize …
