would love a profile eval from you.

recs: don't have a current supervisor so asking previous supers for recs. (will have to explain this situation for some schools that require current supers recs)
Target Schools all hopefully R1: INSEAD, Columbia, Wharton, Stanford, Haas
Looking at schools with good entrepreneurship programs as well as a strong international focus. I can highlight the fact that I have started my own company (overseas) and want to continue as entrepreneur or working in startups after MBA, particularly for companies in Asia.
If you're targeting R1, just focus on doing the best you can on your applications. Asking about your chances at these schools isn't constructive, since I assume you're already knee deep in writing the essays. But if you want reassurance -- your chances are zero if you don't apply at all.
