    Hi Mr. Valuation Specialist, Julie-Anne Heafey here from mbaMission. I really appreciate the impact you’ve had at work – particularly in using automation to drive savings, and although I’m not quite sure how the drone attack created an opportunity for a virtual asset analysis tool (I think I am missing some critical step here), it sounds promising. I’ve worked with multiple Indian candidates for Wharton, however, and I concur that the competition is stiff for those with your background so they tend to take the cream of the crop, score-wise.

    Mr. Valuation Specialist – Thanks for sharing your profile. Susan Cera, Director of MBA Admissions at Stratus here. I spent 5+ years evaluating Indian candidates at Duke Fuqua so have seen many similar profiles.

    Clearly you are very accomplished at work! While your hobbies are interesting, they are primarly self serving and don’t demonstrate any commitment to working with or supporting others. Your GMAT score is in range but well below the Wharton average so you might consider retaking.

    To stand out in a very competitive pool of Indian engineers, you will need to tell a very compelling story that showcases why you need an MBA.

    Wishing you all the best on your MBA application journey.
