You understand that the 2+2 is by nature a deferral right? It's not that you're going to enter HBS right away, but that you will still work for 2 years before actually attending HBS.

In any case, for the 2+2 program they seem to be focused more on students (American or international) who are currently at US colleges (or European ones). Also, while they wouldn't ever say it out loud because it's politically incorrect to say so, they aren't really targeting Asians either because they get PLENTY of Asian applicants. While someone with your profile may not automatically choose a business career, there's TONS of Asians that will be applying in droves anyhow, and the 2+2 program is really looking to expand their applicant pool beyond the standard corporate professional *and* Asians. With your profile, if you were from Europe, Latin America, Africa or the Middle East, it may be a different story. As such, I think you're going to have a tough time with 2+2. In any case, if you really want to go, just apply and do your best, but also be prepared to focus on looking for a full-time job (because whether you get into 2+2 or not, that should be your priority; it's easy for young folks to overvalue the "school brand" because school/academics is such a predominant aspect of your life to date, but in the real world the "brand" isn't as valued as many students/young people may believe).
