Thanking you in advance.


LBS is an excellent choice. Also consider Columbia. I am concerned that the other programs you have names all prefer less experienced applicants. You profile is impressive and they don't get a lot of applications from Pakistan, so you aren't out of the running, but your high level of experience and age probably make you less of a fit at HBS, Stanford and Wharton.

Also consider Tuck, Kellogg, and INSEAD.

Best,
Linda Abraham
