Looking for advice on how to improve my profile before applying in fall of 2023. BS in chemical engineering and economics, 1 year as a product management intern and 3 years of professional experience as a chemical engineer in the manufacturing sector. My main extracurricular is as a mentor for underprivileged high schoolers, but not a well defined leadership role. My most serious concerns in my profile include conveying leadership and interpersonal skills since my work is fairly technical. I plan to focus my essays and resume on those aspects, but I'm looking for advice about other schools to apply to and how to best build up my profile in the next 18 months. My goal after MBA is to move to operations or strategy consulting in Seattle/Denver.
