Well, you have the GMAT, you have the GPA, you have worked in good industries if not always in the right companies... So you have a shot... what SORT of shot though will depend on may things, and for that we will need to dig far far deeper.

I don't yet get a real sense of exactly what your achievements were and what your performance was like at work, nor do I have a clear vision of your extras, and how impressive they may be... both of these will help immensely, as for HBS applicants, they all have good GPAs and high GMATs (well, most anyhow).

Needless to say, your writing, your passion, your creativity, vision and integrity will count for a great deal in your essays...

You have ticked off all the main boxes already. Great. Now out of all those with the boxes ticked off, what REALLY makes you shine???
