you come from an over represented group, so that will always be a challenge. That being said, your XCs may help you stand out from that highly competitive group. Make sure when you address your essays, you not only explain your XCs, but also what prompted you to open the school, and so forth.

With a well developed plan for Why MBA, Why Now, and the specific schools you are applying (make sure to research each individual school) then I would imagine you should include a mix of schools in your application, include 1-2 from the very top, and 1-2 outside of the top 10. And of course a couple in between. cheers, alex
