Hello,

From the information provided, I believe you’d be a credible and possibly strong candidate for the programs you mention.

Your stats are obviously fine. As you note, your experience is unconventional – but it’s at an appropriate level. So the unconventional aspect creates both challenges and opportunities. Challenges: (a) the adcom must rely on you to explain the whole scenario – not just what you do, but also where, including a clear discussion of your venture, and why you chose this path; (b) regardless of work setting or role, a solid applicant to Booth or Kellogg must show professional growth, so give some consideration to how you will do that. Opportunities: (a) if you address the challenges effectively, you automatically differentiate and distinguish yourself in relevant ways; (b) your goals arise from and draw on your unique experience, so you can ideally create very compelling, firmly rooted goals that will excite the adcoms.
