Hello,

Your record looks excellent. Nevertheless, I would view HBS as an unrealistic reach, not a reasonable reach. Your other “stretch” schools would be very high stretches – reasonable, but high. Your “match” schools would, in my view, be on target – either matches or reasonable but “close” reaches. This less optimistic feedback is not due to any deficiency in your record, but rather due to your being in a strongly over-represented group that tends to feature high stats and strong work accomplishment. This fact tends to bump schools into higher levels of competitiveness, so what would otherwise be a “match” school becomes a reasonable reach, and so on.

For safer schools that are still outstanding, consider Georgetown and UNC Kenan-Flagler.

Regarding the international experience -- the keys to addressing are (a) making the most of the positive and differentiating dimensions that your experience does show, and (b) discussing things that have a global dimension, such as interaction with foreign clients, issues you encounter that have a global impact or global factors that affect your projects, etc.
