28F and 5 years of work experience at time of matriculation. Engineering undergrad at a state school; tech consulting background. I was a first gen college student from rural midwest, and received a full tuition scholarships and worked 2-3 jobs at a time to pay for school.
I was also very involved in extra curriculars during undergrad (president of honor's program stuco, ambassador for engineering and honor's program were the main ones) and after post-undergrad (member of large woman's community service organization, play in local sports leagues weekly). I've also worked in youth sports (referee) since I was 14. I'm involved in local official's organizations and work games 40+ weeks out of the year. I've done this regularly since high school. Post MBA: I'd like to get into product management in the health/fitness space. I think this will give me the opportunity to combine my pre-mba experience with my passion in the space that I've demonstrated by my involvement. I've also had some health challenges that have motivated this too. Currently going through mba prep program through Forte. I know my grades and GRE is lacking a little bit, so not sure if my overall application is even competitive or if I'm targeting the correct schools?
I love the podcast and think it's so helpful to listen to other reviews, so I appreciate any feedback!
