No thesis, this was a part time program primarily geared toward professionals
No patents but I do have 1 trade secret on fiber optics hardware and 1 published internal paper for company symposium
Should be able to obtain good letters of rec from our company sector’s R&D tech director (PhD) and undergrad/grad profs
GRE score of 1300 (in 2003 – so top score was 1600) 570 verbal, 730 math, haven’t taken the PGRE yet

Assuming I rock my PGRE (of course!), my main concerns are my subpar GPA from a not-so-distinguished school, lack of published work, degree program, etc. I’m also concerned about spending the time and energy to put applications together for schools that are not in my reach.
What do you think?
