    Hi Mr. The Italian Dream Job,
    It sounds like you have quite the dream job! This is Debbie Choy from mbaMission. I like that you are an engineer turned financier. You are in a differentiated niche in finance and would surely bring a unique perspective to the HBS classroom.

As you pull your apps together, be sure to describe what motivates you to want to do PE in the US. Why MBA? What specific skillset or knowledge are you seeking at HBS that you are not learning on the job? As well, don’t hesitate to share …
