I found your profile compelling. I like that you work in an under-represented industry and that your company is going through such a high growth phase. I also like that you had some reach in your internships, working in eastern Europe. Academically you are very strong (both grades and GMAT) and this shows that you can excel academically at any top international program. Lastly, your community service work is contemporary and unique and shows a certain degree of vision and creativity.

Based on this initial assessment, I would consider you a highly competitive candidate and a person who should shoot very high. My initial reaction is that you should apply to Wharton - as they have a very strong retail institute and seek people out with such backgrounds. I also believe that your candidacy would be considered strong at HBS and Stanford, but with acceptance rates below 10% and your fellow applicants being the top candidates in the world, it is hard to predict acceptances. I also think that you should look at such other top programs as Tuck, Booth, Kellogg and Columbia. As a back-up, I would advise you to look at Ross and Anderson.

Good luck in this process.

Thank you very much for your reply.
You've really made my day. I thought that applying to programs as Wharton or Columbia would be a complete waste of my time. Thank you!
