Expert's post
I’m unclear as to how your plans to re-join the CA relate to your goals, but I’ll assume a clear and sound reason that you will be able to articulate in your applications.

That said, I still believe Stanford would be an extremely high reach – perhaps beyond reasonable reach. Other than that, there are a lot of “ifs” that arise in considering your viability for the other programs. For example: Wharton, MIT, and Kellogg might be reasonable reaches IF you can link your entrepreneurial goals to your extracurricular work effectively, and IF you can demonstrate that you are a stellar performer at your work, and IF you can show that even though you’re switching careers your work to date has given you some relevant skills and IF you can make the case that you’re informed about the challenges of entrepreneurship. I believe these “ifs” would need to be answered affirmatively for you to be a viable candidate for Wharton, MIT and Kellogg (and certainly at Stanford, even harder). Yale, Ross, and Cornell would be slightly less high reasonable reaches assuming you can answer “yes” to these questions.
