Hello,

I am a European applicant and trying to see whether I would be competitive for the top MBA schools, especially a finance/entrepreneurship school.
I was thinking about MIT.

Since I don't really know much about MBA world in USA, I would really appreciate any help you may have. Could you evaluate the below and share your thoughts on competitiveness and schools to target please?

Thanks!

You should be competitive at MIT with those credentials. I like that you have multicultural work experience and your GMAT is top drawer. With a well articulated vision for your future as well as a story which feels intentional to the adcom (and not happenstance), you should be very attractive. I would advise against HBS and STanford, who typically frown on the older applicants, but other schools including MIT will welcome you with open arms with a winning application in hand, of course.
