Expert's post
You should have a shot at top 10--all the critical components are there including great GMAT, good academics and involvement. The fact you initiated an alumni club and founded it will be a plus--b-schools love people who get involved and are innovative. Your WE is a little light, so you run the risk of being told to come back next year, so you should have a very well articulated answer for why now is the right time for you to get the MBA . Other than that, a clear vision for your post MBA career will be important, since you don't have the maturity of someone who is 28 and has been out there longer. I also like the fact you went to school in the US-this will helpdifferentiate you from other Asian male applicants. top 50 UG school will help too. Let me know if you would like some assistance. Would love to help you get in the school of your dreams.
