Hello,

GMAT: 710 AWA 5.0
Education: Excellent results at school, Uni: finished from a top 3 B-school in UK with BSc Accounting and Finance (65%) (2:1)

Hello,

You're on the young side in terms of whom those schools tend to accept, but that's okay, because you can always wait an extra year or reapply if needed. Since you're younger, I would say HBS and Stanford are the most likely to be interested in your profile, although of course those are also two of the very hardest to get into. I say maybe take a shot at them this coming year, and if that doesn't work out, then aim more broadly in another year or two.

Good luck!
Scott

Hi Scott!

Thanks a lot for the feedback. Regarding my profile do you think it is competitive for HBS and Stanford or are they reach?

Thanks!

They're definitely a reach, but keep in mind that their acceptance rates are on the order of 10%, so don't be discouraged by that -- just be realistic!
