Hi FrankyB,

You have a very strong application and there is no reason why the programs you listed will not consider your candidacy. Remember though that all of the reasons why a top program will admit you are in the details of your work experience, personal experiences, personality, values and overall story. Do not underestimate the importance of your personal essays and recommendations.

Here is some school specific advice for the programs you are considering:

Harvard: http://www.stacyblackman.com/category/harvard-advice/
Stanford: http://www.stacyblackman.com/category/stanford-advice/
Wharton: http://www.stacyblackman.com/category/u ... on-advice/

Cheers,

Conrad and the Stacy Blackman Team
