Hello 311harsh

Very interesting profile to say the least.
A profile needs to be assessed on all the factors mentioned here.
While your Work Experience and Extracurricular are pretty strong and also make you a diverse candidate, what is most important here is to understand why you need an MBA at all.
You have been a successful entrepreneur, and are very different from most applicants, what is your compelling reason for pursuing an MBA? Developing and portraying this narrative is going to be key for you. See if reading here helps.
Secondly, what sort of GMAT are you expecting? For you a 700+ will do wonders.
If you can score that and put together realistic career goals you have a very good chance.

Best

Surprisingly my essays are quite aligned with the second link you've posted, why MBA, already.

My GMAT aim is around a 720
On the GMAT official mock I scored a 600 2 days ago, my realistic target is around 680. Do you suggest I wait and prepare more and apply to R2 or the difference of 20-40 points won't be significant? My GMAT exam date is September 10th.

Also, would you like to review my essays?
