3.7 GPA at a Weak no name small liberal arts undergraduate university. A much higher business GPA (3.8-3.9)
Stem healthcare background
Female
750+ GMAT
Worked at a startup for a little while before building a startup. Does it make a difference if the startup failed?
Strong essay/goals/interview


Would this person have a chance of getting into a top 10 business school?

yes--the female 750 combo plus work experience would probably yield interest from some schools in the top tier as long as the story is good and "what they learned" from the startup failure is compelling.
