Hi Scott & Omari,
First, congratulations on being such successful people I read about you and both of you seem to be doing what you want to do(thats my definition of being succesful).

8>Short Term goal after MBA - project manager
Long Term Goal - CEO of a big company.
9>GPA of almost 3.5
Please tell me how can I make my application stand out.I know there is nothing extraordinary about it.
I don't see any huge weaknesses in your profile that will definitely keep you out of those programs. But, here are a couple of thoughts:
* Ideally you have some examples of how you've really made an impact, both on the job and outside of work, rather than merely working on assignments and attending events. Schools will want to know where and how you've truly made a difference.
* Think a little more about your career goals. These sound very generic right now. Also, why do you need an MBA to become a project manager? What kind of field do you envision yourself in?
