tkerbilator,

Your profile is an unusual and compelling one. I'm not sure it's quite at the Columbia, Wharton, HBS level, but I think it's close. If you had a current extracurricular role that shouted "leadership" as loudly as your work experience then I would be more optimistic. The good news is that even if you get dinged this year you would still be young enough to apply next year, with a (hopefully) improved profile.

Good luck,
