Hellasick,

You have reason to be optimistic given your outstanding academic record and professional experience.

I don't see current or recent community service or EC's. Try to make time for them. Those non-professional activities can improve even your profile.

Could you tell me what you want to do post-MBA before I recommend schools?

Advice, keep up the good work. If you would like help with your MBA applications or with school choice, please consider Accepted.

Best,
Linda
