Hey dude,
Great to hear from you.

Really Smile

So things look really good from here: political involvement in Africa with work as an economist,and good grades from good British universities. Definitely in the running for top 10 schools if:
- You get the GMAT
- You can tell the right story (why MBA, what your goals are, how this links to your past experience, etc. etc.)

But first things first... get that GMAT!
Smile

Best,
Jon
