Thank you very, very much for your reply.
Do you think I would stand a reasonable chance by explaining that I took these classes out of the need to learn how to run my own company, however, I have realized that random classes cannot equate to a full-fledged MBA program in teaching me business skills? I also want to drop out of the MSIT program now, do you think this would help or hurt my aplication? On one hand it may show I am not a degree-collector on the other hand would it cast a doubt on persistence sticking with a program? BTW, Harvard and MIT actually do not require transcripts from schools where one did not finish a degree. I wonder how much those graduate business classes hurt my profile?
Another question I have is for the case that I do not get in this year and have to reapply for the next year. If my startup company fails and I have to get a regular job by next year how much would that hurt my case? Can schools really find out about all jobs I have held even if the job is only for the duration of two weeks or if I have do something part-time to keep myself from starving? I would prefer not to list those side-jobs because they would not match my industry or career pattern; they merely serve to pay bills.
Regarding reapplication, would you suggest to apply anywhere but Harvard if my application is not too strong, in the case I need to reapply? What are the chances in terms of admissions for Europeans compared to Americans at US B-schools? Does it matter which European country I am a citizen of? I can claim citizenship for either Poland or Germany, would one be better than the other?
I would really appreciate if you could give me some advice.
