Looking for tips to strengthen my application. I have a strong personal story, and got involved in teaching and want to transfer to non-profit consulting firm for education and eventually create my own network of charter schools.

1) 4 years teaching Special Education at a high school level. Teach For America Alum
2) Studying For GRE now instead of GMAT because I'm not a super strong math person
3) Tier 2 Public State University
Major: Political Science
GPA: 3.64
Major GPA: 3.93
Graduated 2012

Masters: City College NYC, 3.08
Graduated in 2016 with Masters in Education

4) Co-created after-school program in order to improve student achievement, church involvement and mentorship, part of 100 Black Men of Atlanta to mentor young black men
5) No certifications.
6) Goal of an MBA is to work for an education consultant firm and eventually create my own charter schools

Target Schools: HBS, GSB, Wharton

You are targeting the very best schools, you might want to consider 1-2 more. You'll need to ace the GRE, if you don't have much quant in your background, take a couple of classes and get As. cheers, Alex
