You would stand a chance in b-school(s) if you could showcase headship qualities and achievements in or outside work place in application essays and demonstrate ability to contribute to the classroom and work with others during final interviews. Although you have a decent GMAT score and good GPA, however your work experience for Northwestern is on lower side. I would suggest to do some research on colleges about your eligibility and then target realistic b-schools. You may try your chances in b-schools by clicking

Good Afternoon Folks,
I am interested in doing the Northwestern 1 year MBA program and would like to get an idea of where I stand as a candidate.
Undergraduate University: Southern Methodist University
Degrees: BBA Finance with Honors , BA in Economics
Overall GPA: 3.85 (Magna Cum Laude)
Post undergraduate position: Investment Banking Analyst
-Spent 1.5 years at a strong capital markets focused investment bank where I worked on numerous lead IPOs, High Yield issuances and other capital market transactions along with various strategic alternative proposals. Was offered a third year position at this bank and declined. Shortly thereafter I accepted an identical position at an "elite boutique" M&A focused firm in order to gain more experience in strategic advisory. So far the experience has been very strong.
I am currently approaching the end of my second year and would look to apply for admissions following my third year.
I like the idea of a 1 year MBA because I want the MBA as I progress in my career but do not want to spend too much time away from work due to the opportunity cost as well as the fact I would likely get the same job after my MBA as I would be able to get without my MBA.
Please let me know if you would like me expand on anything else.Posted from my mobile device
