Here's my planned list of schools:

Columbia
Harvard
Wharton
Duke
NC Chapel-Hill

I'm currently in sales but looking to get an MBA in finance.

White Male, 25

GMAT: 730 (47Q, 42V)

GPA: 3.99 from a private Division III university

Work Experience: 3 years in software sales at two different companies. #3 salesperson out of team of 150, promoted to sales manager and led team of 8-12 sales representatives. Switched companies for more potential and to learn enterprise sales ($1M+ deals). Promoted to manager at new company after 1 year.

Extracurriculars: Good in college but mostly hobbies since then. I started an investment blog that has over 5000 visits per month, and have been published on several financial news websites for stock writeups/analysis. Proven and verifiable stock trading record of beating the market over the past 18+ months.

I'm hoping to use my blog and trading background as a reason for going back to b-school for a degree in finance. Overall goal is to start my own investment partnership.

Chances? Any hopes at getting a fellowship or other financial aid?
