Candidate:

Ms. Environmental Engineer

About Me:

Grew up in Pennsylvania, went to University of Delaware for undergrad. Currently a stream restoration engineer with a small firm in Maryland, but realized I have more of a passion for the big picture of business operations than the technical design aspects of engineering.

Details:

Undergrad School: University of Delaware

Undergrad Major: Environmental Engineering

GPA: 3.3

GMAT: 710

Age: 26,  Ethnicity: White

Other Degree/Certification: Engineer in Training

Extracurriculars: Stage Manager & Board Member at local Community Theatre, Sports Intramurals, Genealogy

Work History:

Title: Stream Restoration Engineer 2

Industry: Engineering

Company: Boutique Firm

Length of Employment: 3 yrs, 2 mos

Title: Water Resources Engineer

Industry: Engineering

Company: Top Firm

Length of Employment: 1 yr

Big Life Wins:

Recently at work, ensured the completion of two-stream restoration projects, worth over $1M combined, by completing construction inspections daily and settling disputes between the contractor and the county government. For my community theatre, spearheaded the response to COVID-19 and converted our entire audition process to a virtual format.

Post MBA Goal:

Broadly, I am interested in business operations. While I am also interested in consulting, my ideal job after receiving my MBA would be to work in sports management operations. While I realize this is a niche field, I believe my passion for sports and lack of women who pursue it would make me a unique candidate.

Schools:

Target School: Darden

Status: Open

Considering: Duke Fuqua, Wharton, Columbia, Cornell Johnson, Ross, Georgetown McDonough

    Hi Ms. Environmental Engineer, this is Kristen from MBA Prep School. Your academic background and GMAT score are right in the ballpark for most of the programs you are targeting and I like that you have been active in your community, especially in response to the impact of COVID 19 on the arts (as a former high school theater nerd, I thank you)! You have a nice balance of personal and professional impact that I think your target schools will like. You will need to focus your efforts on building out your career goal motivations and how each of your programs can help you break into a more niche area. How did you get interested in sports? How else are you/were you actively involved in …

    Hi Ms. Environmental Engineer, this is Donna Bauman with Stratus Admissions Counseling weighing in on your profile. It’s great to see you engineering background and overall solid academics and testing. I agree you could go the consulting route if needed but I hear that passion for sports management operations. I would keep this in mind in looking at MBA programs to select schools where there will be active sports business clubs so that you can make these connections in the program and potentially have that as an option for post MBA careers. If you are clear that your backup plan is consulting related I don’t see this being an issue in your application. Darden has a Media, Sports & Entertainment club and I would reach ...
