Hey there,
Although your numbers (GMAT GPA) aren't stellar, thankfully your work experience seems to be! A senior consultant plus an already successful entrepreneur at the age of 20 can be a preeeeeeetty amazing story. I feel that you can do far better than your numbers might indicate if you can get out your story of professional success in the right way. It's all about the essays, dude!

Thanks Jon. My post MBA goal is to raise funds, buy and run the company for 3-4 years before selling it off- SEARCH FUND.

What schools do you think are realistic based on my profile? thank you

Well I would say you could even aim for one, two schools in the Top 10, whichever correspond to you (say Haas, NYU).. And then you will want to aim for a few of the more Tier two schools: Babson could be a good choice given their strength in entrepreneurship, McCombs, Johnson, Kenan-Flagler Anderson, Ross, Kellogg (a bit harder, but you can go for it), and then maybe add one or two schools in which your GMAT would be about average as your safe schools.

H/S/W will still be long shots, but if you can get a 700, go for it. Its worth it, and you will certainly see better results all around.
