Edited to add that I'm a white male, 33 years old and disabled (not learning). I'm also a legacy at Wharton if that matters.

B.A. in Econ from a top 25 USNWR school but my grades were horrible 2.2 cumulative. Graduated in 2006 (at age 26). I had significant medical problems in college (diagnosed with cancer freshman year and things went downhill from there).

Two summer internships in finance while in college. Elected to advisory board for intern program, full time offer but didn't graduate college in time to accept.

Worked for a business incubator for a year after school and was planning on going back to school when I got into a serious car accident. I was told I'd never walk again but after years of hard work I'm more or less back to normal.

Earned a second bachelor's degree in Mathematics from a decent state school. I had a 4.0 in my major and a 3.8 cumulative over 60 credits.

170/168/6 on the GRE. I'd prefer not to take the GMAT but if I had to I assume I'd do well.

I've worked for a midsize healthcare consulting firm for the last 2 years. My recommendations should be solid and I interview well. I've overcome a lot of adversity to say the least.

Since I'm older, I don't see the point in getting an MBA unless it's from HBS, Wharton, Stanford or another top school.

I've volunteered with underprivileged kids, the disabled (which technically I am) and at local animal shelters (love animals).

After I complete my MBA I'd like to work in private equity that specializes in health care which obviously has a special place to me since without great doctors I'd be paralyzed.

Do I have any chance at a top school given this mess?

I appreciate your time and apologize if this was on the long side.

Thank you!

Given your high GRE and excellent grades in the 2nd BA and story, you do have a chance. Obviously the top schools are hard to get into and I can't guarantee acceptance, but I do say when I don't think it's possible. I do think that it's possible for you.

Please let me know if you would like help with your MBA applications.

Best,
Linda
