Hi Experts!
Thank you in advance for taking the time to read this post. I would like to see how my profile is shaping up for top 10 B- Schools. FYI, my dream schools are HBS, INSEAD, HEC,STANFORD,and MIT. I'm hoping to get an expert opinion.

My stats

Work Experience when applying: 9 years
- 4 years in IB (M&A and structured finance)in France and West Africa region
- 5 years as geologist in West Africa with Xstrata Nickel and Endeavour Mine

Current position: M&A Associate in Investment Banking focused in Africa

Undergrad Institution: INP-HB the top University in Ivory Coast)
Undergrad Major: Mine and Geology
Undergrad GPA: 3.8
Postgrad Institution : EM lyon Business School (top tiers B- School in France and ranked 3th by FT)
Post Major: Finance- Investment banking
Postgrad GPA: 3.5

Language = French (Native), English and Germany (Basic)

GMAT Overall: I plan to take my GMAT during mid -2017 with 700 as target.

With all elements, what is my chance to get into a top 10 B-School specially HBS or INSEAD?

Thx for all

Your goals, and community service type activities are also important. If you are not career switching, then a one year program, like INSEAD, might be a better fit given your length of experience/age. In that regard, you will be a bit of an outlier. cheers, Alex
