You may be a qualified candidate for the programs you mention, but I can’t tell from the information provided. It will depend in part on the following factors: an impressive GMAT score, strong grades in university and law school, and your professional track record – not just what you do but whether you’ve excelled relative to your professional peers. If all these factors are appropriately high, and you are under 30 or so, then these programs might well be reasonable reaches of varying degrees. _________________
