Hi Scott and Omari,
I want to apply to current round - Chicago, Darden, Stanford,. I think I am a little bit late.
I have already applied to HBS,MIT, and Tuck

I have strong academic background( awards, olympiad champiobn, GPA=4) and GMAT=750. I
am head of my class(at college), ex chairman and co-founder of high-school alumni network, Captain of class intelluectual Game team, and Party Organizer for University Student Union.
I am college senior from Azerbaijan (21 years old). I want MBA for FALL 2006. I only have 3 years part-time work, and 5 month work at non-profit organization.

Do you think that it is rational to apply to universities I mentioned above now? And if yes o which? And do they have sympathy to young applicants?
I plan to apply to Darden now. What do you think?
Please, evaluate my chances to get touniversities I applied as well.

Your experiences in shcool (especially leadership experiences, which are key) sound good. So, you have som potential to get into b-school now. But the key for you will be to convincingly explain why you want an MBA *now*, and not 3-5 years from now. If you have a specific reason, such as you want to start a business or you want to take over your family business but want formal training first, this will help a lot. Otherwise, adcomms may say, "Contact us again in three or four years."

Stanford is known to take some people with little or no work experience. Harvard, too. Also take a look at McCombs.
