Thank you for your posting.

You have many impressive aspects to your background. Just be aware that you are in a very competitive demographic and the actual acceptance rate for candidates similar to you is much lower than the overall acceptance rate.

Based on your career goals, I would recommend the following school: Fuqua, Ross, Stern, Johnson, Tepper, Kelley, Rotman, IE, IESE and ISB. For backup programs, I would consider Rice, Notre Dame and Rochester.

With a strong application, you have a good chance of being admitted to many of these programs. Just be aware that you must invest in the application process – in order to distinguish yourself and make your candidacy stand out from the masses.

Good luck.
