Hello,

Your numbers are certainly impressive and will ensure your application receives a serious review by your target schools.

The key in your situation will be to show (a) how, with your relatively short experience, you will “carry your weight” as a contributor in classes and on projects with classmates who are also stellar performers and deeper experience, and (b) why you need the MBA at this early point in your career.

I believe that if you make a compelling case for (b) above and present/integrate your differentiating factors (e.g., expertise in Talmudic Law) effectively, you will be well positioned for the top programs you are interested in.
