Please find my profile below. I really appreciate your help in evaluating my chances of getting into these programs!

Work on program management and strategic planning projects for Department of Defense Psychological Health and Traumatic Brain Injury programs. Started at PwC out of college as an Associate and recently promoted to Senior Associate.
2) 750 GMAT (49Q, 42V)
3) Graduated from UNC - Chapel Hill in 2009, double major in Political Science and English, 3.54 GPA. Studied abroad in Madrid (all coursework in Spanish).

Mentor KIPP students applying to college and Washington Tennis and Education Foundation students.

5) Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM), plan to get PMP
6) HBS, Wharton, Tuck, Sloan, Booth, Darden, Fuqua, Kellogg. Considering applying for MBA/MPP dual-degree with HKS--does this hurt, help, or have no effect on MBA admissions chances?
7) Short-term: work for a leading strategy consulting firm to learn best practices among public sector and commercial clients. Long-term: transition to management role in public sector and use business knowledge and skills to improve government organizations
THANK YOU FOR YOUR HELP!!!!!!!
You have an impressive profile. I think you are applying appropriately and have chosen your schools wisely.
Applying to the joint program with HKS does not affect your MBA admissions chances. You may also want to consider the joint program between Wharton and SAIS, if you are interested in the public sector on an international scale.
If you would like help with your applications
, please keep Accepted in mind.
