Thanks for reaching out to Amerasia. Well, you have certainly done some cool things and some of your projects speak loud and clear to the values of your target schools (thinking about the world around us ala Oxford, leadership through teamwork ala Kellogg, etc.), but without knowing your academic profile, goals, and interests, it is impossible to measure your chances. The main thing that you will have to do though - as is the case with all applicants, regardless of profile - is turn those unique experiences into valuable application work product. Sure, in some cases you can just tell stories for biggest accomplishment, greatest failure, time you did X, etc. But the real gold is in taking your rich personal history and turning into 1) a rich, nuanced long-term career goal (which is then supported by the path from now to MBA to ST goal), and 2) transferable skills that will allow you to actually get your first job out of school. If you can extract those things, you will be on the right path regardless of school. Hope that helps.

Best,

I think you will be a competitive candidate at all your schools. 20-30 points higher on the GMAT would be nice, especially at Yale (note from the #s that they are a GMAT sensitive program - very high average, particularly relative to where they are ranked), but you certainly aren't on a mission impossible at any of them. Based on your diverse experiences and "impact efforts," I think all three are good fits from a personality standpoint and Oxford, to me, is your best bet. I really think you would thrive there from the little I read above.

(Oh, and the experience outside of your home country is helpful as well - more than ever, that seems to be important, especially for applicants from India.)

Good luck!

Best,
-Adam/Amerasia
