Personal: White male from the midwest.

Education: Chemical Engineering undergrad with 3.1 gpa from Colorado School of Mines. Played on the NCAA basketball team in college.

Experience: All experience is with a large US Private Company (revenue of 100B+). First 3 years in an engineering leadership development program while spending time in Texas, Kansas, and Minnesota all in different roles including commercial development and Project Management. Currently in an engineering and energy management role.

Short term goal is to join a consulting firm with a focus on energy strategy and then move into an operations manager role within an energy company and ultimately into a vp.

Other: Obviously some concern on the undergrad gpa. I am planning to apply to all of the schools in round 1. Looking for ways to maximize scholarships and increase chances of admittance. Big fan of the podcast and appreciate the insights given.
