Expert's post
Thanks for the posting.

Let me start off by saying that you have many compelling aspects to your candidacy that all of the top programs will find appealing. However, I need to counter-balance my initial enthusiasm by two very real factors - one being that you are in a very competitive demographic and the other being that you are aiming for schools with very low acceptance rates (Stanford just 7%). So while you are a competitive candidate, you need to be realistic about your prospects and the reality of the admissions process. Simply put, your application has to be compelling on all fronts -- essays, recommendations, interviews, interactions with school officials and students, etc. I would also recommend that you apply R1 as a candidate with your credentials should be submitting early to set the standard, not chase it.

I want to emphasize that your application has to be top notch -- meaning that you will have to invest a significant amount of time, energy and resources into the process.

Lastly, I am also going to recommend that you consider applying to Sloan and Tuck -- based on what you present here, I am confident that they would find your application interesting. Also, it will diversify the risk of applying to just the top schools a bit.

Good luck.
