Thank you for using the timer!
We noticed you are actually not timing your practice. Click the START button first next time you use the timer.
There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:
I would appreciate if someone could tell me how good and realistic my chances of getting into a Top 10 or Top 5 program are.
I am 27 years old, European, and have four years of work experience. 3 years as a systems analyst for a Fortune 500. 1 year as CEO of my own startup. I speak four languages fluently.
Undergraduate degree: Minnesota State University, Computer information Science, 3.85GPA
Company: CEO of less than ten employees
Career: MBA would help to grow my company from small to big
Distinguishment: Travelled every continent, entrepeneur, won several global business plan competitions (Stanford, Oxford, Singapore..)
community service: project manager for building house for poor old lady, led 50 people
So far so good . . . however, some observers would want to know more about your business since it has existed for a relatively short time. Could you demonstrate to the admissions cmmte that it is a serious endeavor and that attending a top business school would have a meaningful impact on the business?
The business has actually existed for 3 years. I quit my full time job almost a year ago to run it, so hopefully that would show that it is a serious endevour.
I want to go to business school to learn core business skills since I do not have any from my ndergad degree, plus establish networks with future clients/partners. I was born in Poland, would mentioning that help my application vs. Germany?
Do you think I have any chance? Does it make sense applying for 2nd round(I have everything ready, essays, etc.) or do you think I would stand a better chance in Fall of next year? Is my GMAT score too low?
Thanks Hjort, I really appreciate your comments
Thanks Hjort. Sorry I thought you were with accepted.com, since you were the only one who replied and the topic is "Ask Accepted.com", so I assumed you were affiliated with them. I apologize. So in the end, do you think I have a shot for a top B school if I manage to differentiate myself and explain my reasons thoroughly? Will the 710 GMAT be a problem, do I need more?

Thank you very much,
You have a competitive profile for the top ten and are applying appropriately if you are applying to top ten schools.
Good luck! _________________

Do you guys think I am too old to be accepted into Harvard or Stanford? I read in someone's posting that those two schools prefer younger applicants. At the time of entry I would be 27 years and 10 months old.
Is that a problem?
