Hello my friend. Happy to offer up some thoughts here--and sorry to be a couple days late.

Honestly bro...Jiu Jitsu? Awesome stuff. I love your well rounded profile.

Now, you are a taaad older than some schools would like to see. But Im not worried about it.

One bigger challenge that I can see my friend is LEADERSHIP. Do you have it? I see that you have contacts at HBS which is great but...do you have any real leadership experience? I cant quiiite tell from your background. If yes, you should sail into some of the programs youve listed. The safer ones for sure. The stretches will be, well, tough of course. But Id also look at UCLA as a safety, and Id consider LBS. Great finance resources...

Hope this helps brother, and good luck!

JDF

Hi JDF,

Thanks for the reply. What would you consider leadership experience? Can you give examples of some of your past clients, examples that may seem more ordinary? I just feel like have not done anything meaningful.

By leadership we mean just that: leadership.
What is starts with is of course management. So if you are leading a team that's a good start. If not then we look for mentoring, team-building, leading trainings, motivational sessions. We also look for leadership outside of work: Military is a GREAT place to get some leadership, but it's not the only. School Government, politics, religious areas, volunteerwork, sports, and community service are all great places to get leadership out in your profile, as, of course, is entrepeneurship.

I hope that helps you my friend,
