You have a unique and interesting profile – they key will be tomake the most of it in your applications.

Overall, I consider you a qualified and viable applicant to the best programs, and you’ve targeted a good range of high and closer reasonable reaches, and some very appealing (for your goals) on-pars, e.g., McCombs. Really showcase your strengths and unique experiences effectively – in other words, at work and outside work, make sure you show leadership and impact, while also presenting a unique voice and perspective.

Overall your R1/R2 approach is fine. If you have to move any R1 programs to R2, make sure it’s not MIT.
