Expert's post
You have the core qualifications on paper for a very competitive application to any top business school. Particularly because you are coming from a non-traditional background (biomed) and have a top-drawer GMAT score, despite your lower GPA, you would be very interesting to top schools. The key ingredient for you is, are you passionate about the MBA and what you want to do with it specifically, or are you just searching for a degree which will make you more employable. You could probably still get into a good school even with mediocre articulation of this, but with the right coaching and crystalization of your plans, you could write your own ticket. Get serious about what you want to do with your past when leveraged with the MBA and you will have found the secret: passion and vision.
