Hey there good sir!
So I like your profile overall. with three passports and your exchange semesters, you come across as quite international, which is one of your strong points. Also, AdComs don't really get to see that many Spanish applicants, and I believe this should work in your favor. That + the interesting side projects in music, film and entrepreneurship, should help you build a profile that is not only strong, but also interesting. (Well at least, that is what you should aim for Smile )

As far as your goals go, MBB is an easier sell than VC (I mean you have the experience) so I'd suggest going with that story.

Other than that, add another school or two to your list get those applications done, and best of luck!

Jon
