5 year undergrad? Is that an issue? mention in application? [#permalink]

I did two years undergrad at a decent private university. Did well and transferred to a IVY League school. There were many requirements which I weren't able to fulfill in time due to which i had to stay one extra year. Is that an issue when you apply to Business school?
Here are my qualifications:
Bachelor of Science: Comp. Engineering from an IVY League school
CFA Level III Candidate - just took the 2007 CFA level 3 exam (waiting for the result)
Occupation: Rapidly promoted to manager at work (am in Mutual funds)
GMAT: currently preparing for that...but am pretty sure i can break 700.
Do give me your thoughts on my chances for a top school and also regarding the particular situation about the 5 year undergrad.
DO I NEED TO ADDRESS THIS ISSUE IN THE APPLICATION?

It will likely come up in the interview if your interviewer is looking at your resume and has a keen eye. But it's NOT a red flag, maybe just something they would be curious about. And it's not like you were kicked out of school for a year for selling drugs, you changed schools and had to stay longer for the new requirements, no big deal.
Definitely not an issue. Many students are taking more than four years to finish undergrad. Sounds like you have a very good reason for it. I don't think I would even mention it in your additional essay.
