Ms. Ultimate Frisbee Engineer
I am a 31 year old Civil Engineer based in the Philippines. I am currently in construction management, overall in charge of the construction of a residential tower valued at $47M. I split my time between work and my Ultimate Frisbee career. I am a member of the National team and will also be a playing coach in an upcoming world championship.
I am considering retaking my GMAT (my mock scores were 750, 730, and 740). Is it advisable or am I better off improving other aspects of my application? Appreciate your comments!
