Very impressive. You have a competitive profile for your target programs, albeit you are on the young side. Apply R1 this fall and see how you do. If you don't get in this time, continue excelling, leading and initiating and time will take care of your youth while allowing you to build an extraordinary record of achievement.

If you would like help with your MBA application,please let me know.

Best,
Linda
