Hey there Mohammed,
Thanks for writing dude. So first of all its great that you have that 750. It will help you a lot!!
Top 20 schools will be still tough (top 10 will be very tough) because 1. UG grades and 2. Work experience as teacher and translator. I mean its totally okay that you want to change industries and jobs (and let's be honest LOTS of people do with an MBA), but you have to realize that Top hedge funds can recruit someone who did their UG in an Ivy league got a 3.5+ and have five years experience in finance. And the Bschools will know this too. Which is what will make Top 20 schools tough. You can of course still choose one or two to apply to, but you should also have some Top 40 schools in your list.
If you like the post, give it a KUDOS!
