Hi there,

You've got a strong foundation for an application to your target schools. Your decent academic performance, solid GMAT, and rigorous work experience make you a compelling candidate at most MBA programs, but keep in mind you're going after the cream of the crop. Your fit will depend on your goals and how you position yourself throughout the application. Without knowing what your short and long term goals are, it's tough to say which schools are better for you over the others.

One component I didn't see you discuss is your leadership capacity throughout your professional career. This is an area that will be looked in-depth, so I encourage you to think times you've influenced others or led a team through an adverse situation. Let us know if you think we can help round out your story and review your application before you submit for R2. Best of luck!
