Requesting for evaluation of my chances at INSEAD, Kellogg 1Y and Stanford.

GRE: VR: 160; QR: 170 (Equivalent to 750 GMAT as per ETS) - if necessary, can take GMAT as well
LSAT : 95th percentile: Have admits from a couple of Top 15 law schools
Indian Male, 30 years at matriculation, Engineer from top 12 school (top 20% of class) and PGDM from top 4 school (exchange semester at AIT, Thailand) and top 30% in class
Certified Financial Risk Manager; CFA Level II candidate
Several single and double digit country ranks at aptitude exams and management entrance exams in India
Internships during Under-grad and grad at Siemens, BMW and nuclear and thermal power plants
Total work ex of 6 years (7 at matriculation)
3.5 years - Working at a very large Indian power company: started off with Project Finance working with US Exim on a 600Mn USD deal - helped close financing documents and obtain first disbursement.
Moved to Regulatory and policy advocacy role: Worked with industry associations to push for reforms in energy sector in India - responsible for many new policy reforms (as part of groups)
Filed multiple petitions in courts and helped company win lawsuits worth ~20Bn USD.
0.5 year - Assisted the chairman of another large power company in regulatory and policy related works
Last 2 years - co-founded a renewable energy company (consulting and project management work) now backed by PE and traditional lenders; team of about 50 now with experience of reviving stranded hydro projects and setting up many rooftop solar projects.
Goal: Plan A: grow network to join a start up or directly start a renewable energy company; Plan B: move to a top consult in energy practice in US; Plan C: work with a large power/energy company (not sure if that is possible as an international). Second MBA to expand network and reach out to entrepreneurs.
Extra-currics - Lots of teaching to underprivileged students, set up infra for villagers through our company (not as CSR), set up blood donation camps, many Club president etc work at college and grad school; debating, editorial board,scuba diving and quizzing.
Other factors: From a poor background, can speak four Indian languages fluently, overcame alienation as a child.
LOR: Should manage to get good ones from my past employers.
Thanks,

Hi, and thanks for writing! I think that you have strengths to your profile, including a strong GRE score/good academics, solid work experience with impressive entrepreneurship, and good extracurriculars. While the schools you listed are all very competitive (especially Stanford), I don't think any of them are out of reach for you given your strengths. I think the keys to your candidacy will be: conveying your professional and volunteer/personal experiences engagingly to the AdCom, making it clear why now is the right time for an MBA (and why the particular program is a fit) and being specific about your short-term and long-term goals (to me, Plan B seems the most feasible).

I hope that helps! If you'd like to discuss your profile in more depth, I highly recommend a 30-min free consultation: https://www.mbamission.com/consult/?dis ... admissions
