Thanks for your post and sorry for the delay - I'm out of the country on CS business. Thanks for your patience! Let's see what we've got here...[What I like]
You have a GMAT score that starts with a "7" and you have an amazing undergrad GPA. Your school, while not an IIT or NIT, it still a pretty decent school. I also like your international work experience even though you aren't actually traveling that much. You work for a blue chip company.[What I'm Not a Huge Fan Of]
Your GMAT score, while it starts with a 7, is still below average for your peer set. Also, you're on the younger side so you don't have a professional profile that makes you stand out. Also, your involvement, while it's good you have it, doesn't make me sit up and take notice. It's pretty participatory versus truly impactful involvement. Also, your goals are going to attract a lot of negative attention because they don't make a whole lotta sense together. We hear this a lot - I'll do consulting while will help me set up my own company.
It won't. Unless you want to join a consulting company that does retail consulting and your start up idea is a consulting firm that does retail consulting. Otherwise, it won't help you beyond brand and a network.
So be careful with your goals.[Overall]
I think you're stretching a bit. Haas is too far of a stretch to be considered, to be honest. Even Darden, UCLA, and McCombs will be difficult. If you're looking for safer programs, look in the 20 - 30 range or so.
I hope that helps and let me know if you have any questions!
