I served a 2 year LDS mission, so I am a bit older than most other applicants, and I am afraid that will hurt me. Also, I'm a bit worried I am too business-focused. Thoughts anyone?

Here are my stats:

Age: 24
Education: Psych major, 3.86 GPA (semi-target)
Work History:Finance internship with fortune 100 (this summer), small consulting/design firm
Test Scores:GMAT 720
Gender: Male (white)
Extras:
- 2 years as an LDS missionary in Tokyo (learned fluent Japanese)
- 3 time marathon finisher, Boston Marathon qualifier (Started as 240lb all-league lineman in HS football)
- Consulting Club President
- Member of various honor and academic societies, small leadership roles in a few of them
- Started small non-profit website to help teenagers find jobs (pretty small, but worth mentioning)
- TED.com volunteer Japanese translator
- Participant in small research conference, work cited in academic journal

Your insights would be extremely appreciated. Thanks!

I think you have a pretty interesting story to tell. Your grades are certainly up to the standards of 2+2. I think you have a shot for it. And yes, your age is a bit more parculiar BUT there are always exceptions and I think in your case, you should still go for it. What's the worse that could happen?
