Expert's post
Insurance is a good background for financial services, but know that the blue sky laws and other regulations and compliance requirements are different depending on where you work. Some firms will sponsor a work visa and some will not. If you don't have the HB1 Visa and plan to work in the US, you may have more difficulty convincing adcoms you are worth the employment risk. You should emphasize your management and leadership experience in your application to distinguish yourself from others who may not have been promoted or led seminars, etc. it's all about standing out against others with simiar backgrounds after all. Good GMAT and your target schools seem to span a reasonable range of admissions difficulty. Let us know if we can help you pull your story and application together.
