I’m looking to start an MBA in 2014. Any ideas which programs I have a shot at?

Career Goals: Hedge Funds or Venture Capital with high-tech industry focus
Legacy candidates have a slight advantage, so that's a plus. Canadian citizenship is a plus as it under-represented. your core profile characteristics are good--WE is a little light but you may be able to tell some good stories to make your background more relevant and interesting. It's really all about casting a compelling vision for what you want to do post MBA and convincing the adcom you can achieve it. The white caucasian pool is large, vast and highly competitve, but you may just have enough things to differentiate yourself.
