It would be much appreciated if I could receive some advice/ an assessment of my upcoming B-School application:
Nationality: Chinese male/ Spent past 8 years in US
Degree: Undergrad in China (top 10 school), major in bio-chemistry GPA 3.6/4.0 M.S in Stanford, major in Materials Engineering GPA 3.8/4.0
GMAT: 710 (Q: 51 / V: 33 / IR: 6) - weak Verbal; retake worth it? Plan to apply for R1 so not much time left
Work Experience: Spent past 6 years in the healthcare/biotech industry as product design engineer.
2 years in a hot start-up company in Silicon valley, title:** Product Engineer**
3 years in Thermofisher Scientific, title: Senior Product Engineer
1 year in Siemens Healthineers, title: Staff Product Engineer
Do not have people manager experience. Do have managed programs and led product from concept to market launch
Post-MBA goal: Consulting (with focus in Healthcare/biotech industry), Product Management
Advantage: Relatively high GPA, great school (Stanford), named companys
Disadvantage: Age, lack of management experience, not traditional background (no finance or consulting)
It would be great to get some advice on chances at these schools and the necessity of a GMAT retake.
