Candidate:

Ms. 2+2 ENG Entrepreneur

About Me:

I am a deferred admission program applicant who is a first-generation engineer with a BS and MS in industrial and systems engineering. I have internship experiences working in the consulting sector and for the largest oil and gas company in the world. I am very enthusiastic about the impact I have been able to have on my college campus, specifically through serving as Chapter President of my large student organization. When I was 18 years old my family adopted teenage twins who did not come from a good educational district. These new additions to my family really opened my eyes to the educational opportunity gaps apparent in our nation. Because of this, 2 years ago I founded an educational software start-up which aims to close this gap for disadvantaged students. This project has truly been a labor of love for me and I would like to run it full-time in the future.

There are a few things in your background that will be very appealing to deferred admit programs in general. Because you have an engineering background, you are not in the MBA pipeline as much as someone who studied business and many of the deferred admit programs are looking to attract talent that might not be thinking about an MBA. However, I’m not sure how much benefit you have given that you are heading into the consulting pipeline—which is very traditional on the MBA route. But I still see your engineering degree as a positive and …
