Hi,

Thanks in advance for all your help.

I would like to know 1)my real chances, 2) how to best market myself to Full Time MBA in TOP schools. HBS, , Columbia,MIT, NYU, Stanford,Chicago,Berkeley.
P.S.: I will apply to Wharton Larden

About me:

I am a truly international young man. I have two passports, Brazilian and Italian. I fluently speak 4 languages and currently I am taking an intensive French course in Paris.

My GMAT score 730 (taken on 23/10/2008).

GPA 3.93.I have a B.S. in Business Management (Summa Cum Lade); from Fairleigh Dickinson University, which was ranked #7 in the U.S. in Entrepeneurship by Princeton Review.

Full soccer scolarship during undergraduate years and many extracurricular activities such as president of the chess club.

Now the weak area,

I dont have full time work experience. But I have had 4 internships in three different countries. In detail:
Jan 08 to April 08
I worked in a hospital in Manhattan as the weekend supervisor of around 30 people who did cleaning services.

Nov 05 to Nov 07
Self Employed in a financial services company in Paramus, New Jersey

Summer 2007
Shadowing of Production Director in a small company in Brazil Summer 2006
Sales Administration in an small Argentinian firm.

1)Do I have a real chance in TOP schools?
2) I know my focus must be why not work 2-3 years and then try to get in TOP MBA programs. Do you suggest any section I should focus on my application?
Any advices on how to market myself the best are welcome.
Thank you.
