Hello 123man, thanks for your question.

Your GPA is solid. Your overall GMAT is fine, but I think your quantitative score is slightly low (80% is the usual threshold for top programs).

Your work experience appears solid, and your extracurricular activities are good (co-founding a non-profit organization). Your competitiveness will rest upon your ability to clearly demonstrate your leadership ability – moments where you influenced people/organizations, drove results, and took the initiative.

I think you will need to tie together your past and current experience with your future career goals. There should be a cohesive link from your customer service position in the chemical industry to your private equity role to where you want to go post-MBA. How does an MBA fit into the story?

Your target list looks reasonable. You might consider add programs like Darden, Haas, and Johnson.

Best of luck,
Brian
