Good day,

I'm really interested in applying to HBS's 2+2 Program and Stanford's and Yale's deferred admission MBA Program and I would really appreciate a quick evaluation from you on my chances of admission.

-22 years old Mexican male, currently on my senior year.

-Member of my University's Honors Program, currently doing research on Climate Change consequences for communities near the rivers at the northern part of Mexico.
-Worked a summer internship at a local construction site where I suppervised a little team of 4 workers.
-Currently teaching math courses at poor Primary Schools in my state.
-Proposed to create CETYS's (the best private High School and University in Mexico's north-western side) first men's volleyball program, enabling approximately 30 volleyball players in all of Baja California (a mexican state) to apply for a scholarship regardless of their social status.
-4.0 GPA
-750 GMAT.

Extracurricular:
-Been a high performance volleyball athlete for the last 7 years.

Former team captain at:

Post MBA short-term Goal would be to start my own construction firm in Mexico and actively participate to diminish Mexico's corruption rate in this sector, also I think its very important to start construc
Long-term goal would be to become involved in the government.ting safe infraestructure in Mexico as these irregularities have been recently exposed by the recent earthquake. I would like my firm to be the first in my country to do construction clean and safe.

Any advise on what I should be doing to improve my admission's chances would be kindly welcomed!

Hey @Enrique10
What an interesting profile! Apologies that no one has responded to you sooner! On the surface, you have a lot going for you! Great stats and great extracurriculars too. The one thing that I would probably want to explore with you a bit more is your goals. Why construction? Have you ever started something from scratch before? Depending on the answers to this -- it might make more sense to say, for example, that your goal is real estate finance or real estate development in the short-term and that longer-term, you'll go for entrepreneurship.
Regardless, if you are still in the midst of applying, you might get a lot of out of a free consultation with mbaMission. Please do get in touch with us about setting something up!
