Hi,

Thanks for posting. Regarding other recommended schools, do you have a preference in location? It looks like you are focused on EMBA programs.

For Wharton, EMBA programs in particularly will be more focused on your work and leadership experience, as opposed to your numbers (GMAT score and university record). These programs are looking to cultivate future leaders, so any managerial/leadership experience you can point to is important. With your career and extracurricular activities, this is what admissions teams are going to be wanting to see.

Here is some school specific advice for Wharton: http://www.stacyblackman.com/business-s ... n-wharton/

Cheers,

Conrad and the Stacy Blackman Team
