You have a good profile. Your good gmat score (740) and the strong medical reason will alleviate any fears about your academic capability. If I were you, I would focus all the energies on the essays. They will determine your next step. I would add Yale into the list instead of McCombs. Yale values your experience in Government. You can also add MIT into the list. Boston is strong in healthcare. Good luck!

WE: 3 Years in Political Campaigns, 1 year in Government Relations for a Health Care company

I became very sick during my Freshman year of college and after lots of testing and procedures discovered that I had a cancerous brain tumor. I had an emergency surgery and was able to complete a successful 6 week course of radiation. Despite this setback, I went on to graduate alongside my class in 4 years and ended up leading the largest student organization on campus for 2 years and assisted in raising more than $600,000 on the organization’s behalf.

After graduation, I took my personal passion for healthcare to one of the Dakotas to work on a winning political campaign of a United States Senator who had recently recovered from a major health setback. Went on to work for 2 years on a statewide political campaign before transitioning to work in government relations for one of the country’s largest providers of long-term and in-home care.

Despite all the talk in Washington, my experiences at my present company have led me to believe that the real innovations in the healthcare world will come from private companies. I want an MBA to position myself to work for and eventually lead a company in the rapidly growing industries of either biotech or mobile health.

I appreciate your thoughts. I am currently considering applying to the following schools but would appreciate additional suggestions.

HSB
Wharton
Tuck
Haas
Darden
McCombs
