I am looking for some guidance on where I might be a competitive applicant. Many thanks for your help in advance.
English M 29

2 years of professional rugby in Europe before university
During college: club rugby team, VP & Treasurer for rugby team. Worked 30hrs/wk for a family business (defense contractor)
Post college: local youth rugby team coach, Arts & Culture Network board member (work organization)
GPA Mitigation: No drama, simply didnt realize the value of education at that point in my life and focused too much on rugby, work and other ECs. I am the first in my family to graduate from high school and simply wasn't prepared for college. I have an alternate transcript of 4 courses of a quantative nature all with As.
Davis, you have an impressive profile. Your work experience, ECs and GMAT score make you competitive for any top school. Your complimentary course work and good GMAT score should be sufficient enough for adcom to convince that you have the analytical/quant skills to deal with the coursework.
Given your experience, I assume that your post-MBA career goal is PE/VC or IB. If that's the case, then you should apply to LBS, Booth, Columbia and Wharton as your top choices. Choose a couple of safety schools beyond M7 for hedging your risks.
