Hi all, I'd be extremely appreciative for evaluations of my chances at the following schools: Stern, Columbia, Wharton. Thanks in advance!

GRE: Quant 164 (90 percentile); Verbal: 165 (95%), Written 4.5 (73%)
School: Queen's University (Canada's Dartmouth), 3.4/4.3 GPA
Volunteering: 2005 - youth mentoring program (Cape Town, South Africa townships); 2009 - member of local charity campaign; 2012 - created voluntary cross-entity research group at work
Work: 5 years experience at major Canadian financial firm; no promotions (flat organizational structure), but steady salary raises; I've been afforded a lot of responsibility/privilege for someone my age; strong recommendations (however neither is from a director or managing director).
Essays: Should be strong - I have a unique and (very biased, but I believe) compelling story why I want to get my MBA.
Other: Well-rounded extracurriculars; I'm a white Canadian guy that works in finance - this doesn't help!

You have a great GRE score and some cool extra-curricular activities (it is also helpful that you have some international experience). I know nothing about Canadian schools, but if your university as renowned as you say it is, then that aspect will also be helpful.

However, you have given little information about your work experience. If the type of responsibility that you have been given would be viewed as admissions as impressive then I say that you have a competitive profile at these schools. Remember that all of these schools have tons of strong applicants, but you might as well roll the dice and see what happens.

I would also apply to a few schools that are a few rungs down the latter so that you have a safe backup plan.

Best of luck with the applications.

Give Kudos if my post was helpful!

I think you have a decent shot. You just need to craft your story well.
