Felipe R
Electrical Engineer & Sales

Felipe got into his top 2 MBA programs with a full-ride tuition scholarship worth $100K+

I had spent ~10 years working as both an electrical engineer and global sales leader but felt like I had reached a ceiling in my career. I wanted to move into product management, specifically in tech. I had applied to so many jobs by myself over the years but couldn’t quite make the transition. I felt like I was in an industry that was not innovating anything new and needed more energy infused into my career. After doing some research, I decided that an MBA program could catapult me into a strategic business role within tech, but I was really worried about taking out loans, especially as a first-generation American and child of immigrants. Priscilla was central to my success during the entire MBA application process (which lasted from August 2022 to March 2023). With her help, I submitted applications to 3 programs on-time. Priscilla also helped me overcome some of my challenges with procrastination and perfectionism. I got a full-ride tuition scholarship at the University of Washington – Foster School of Business for their full-time MBA program, valued at $100K. I got a partial tuition scholarship at the University of Texas at Austin – McCombs School of Business, a total of $40K in tuition funding. I also got a 100% tuition scholarship at the University of Rochester – Simon School of Business. I got into all 3 of the MBA programs that I applied to, and I couldn’t be more excited to start this new journey in my career! Ever since getting into these programs, I have been drowning in joy from the outcome.
