Your ducks seem pretty well lined up in my opinion. The only point I would recommend working on is building a bridge to the VC industry. So many applicants and students want to enter those industries, but there are very few positions available. To prove that your goals are achievable, demonstrate that the path to VC makes sense and is waiting for you through a network that you have already established.

Thank you Jeniffer.

Although I wont be easing out before I secure a seat. I am in search of a PE internship and have increased networking as well. I will work towards your advice to reinforce my applications.

Would you please tell me which schools would I have the best shot at given my profile (?) since I have figured through due diligence that they are quite different in nature.

Best wishes

If you do earn the 750 GMAT, then I believe you stand a good chance at the top Finance programs, but I do recommend applying to a broad spectrum of programs to improve your chances. Therefore, I would recommend selecting from the following (in no particular order): Wharton, HBS, Stanford, MIT, Chicago, UCLA, Columbia, Cornell, Ross, Yale, NYU, Kellogg, Tuck, Georgetown, and Rochester in the US. If you are considering Europe as well, I would recommend LBS, INSEAD, Oxford, and Cambridge.
