Expert's post
The 1st MBA might be a problem – you need to both show what you got out of it (to demonstrate you apply what you learn) and simultaneously make the case for a 2nd MBA. Programs vary in how they feel about and address this – most say they look at it on a case-by-case basis. That said, I’d consider it a slight negative factor, rather than a neutral factor. The adcoms will likely have a somewhat skeptical eye in seeing it, not that you can’t make the case, but it does put that extra burden on you.

That said, based on the information you’ve provided I’d consider HBS to be on the outer edge of a reasonable reach, and the remaining programs to be reasonable reaches of varying degree. For Kellogg, I would definitely suggest targeting the 1-year program.

For such competitive programs, a lot will rest on how effectively you put together your presentation and “case,” weaving together your experience and your goals into a distinctive and compelling story.
