You meant Admissionado right? ;)

No worries dude... Happy to help out!

So let's start with what I think is your biggest "challenge", and that is in my eyes, your story. As you pointed out yourself, there is something about your career that makes it seem "all over the place" and this is one thing you definitely do NOT want the AdCom to think! The nice thing about this challenge, is that unlike a crappy GMAT, you can deal with it by writing fantastic and fantastically logical essays. It may be a bit harder in your case to massage the facts, given the brevity of your posts, but still, if you can find go reasoning for your choices and present them a set of goals that makes sense, you will have done most of the work.

I think that Booth will be a stretch for you, Duke likely too (although I think more possible than Booth), so if you are really into Duke, I'd say apply to that school as your "Dream School." I think it's always good to have at least one of these in your strategy. UT, Rice and Emory seem about right to me, although it's not entirely clear for me here how strong exactly your work experience is (need more detail).. But they seem about right. What is your reasoning for choosing these schools? And what other schools are you thinking about?

Best,
