Should I even bother applying?

BA: Political Science (International Politics focus); GPA: 3.67, Cumulative GPA: 3.60
GMAT: 720
Econ/Math/Finance: Just Principles of Econ in undergrad, and three "political economy" like classes (3As, 1 B. I was actually a quant guy before undergrad, so I am currently refreshing my math with the hope of taking Micro,Macro, and Multivariable Calc before I apply in November. Is the Calc necessary?
Work Experience: excluding undergrad internships: 1.75 at public sector consulting (doing a great deal of international disarmament/pandemic relief work; (think Deloitte, Accenture, Booz Allen). Prior internship at Bulge Bracket IB.
Leadership: Mentor to national youth development program, pro-bono nonprofit consultant.
Recommendations: 1 professor, 2 supervisors/bosses
Language: Proficient in Spanish, Beginner in French

Are you asking because you're not sure if you'll get in? You have the stats to apply to most top programs including Johnson. You've checked that box for them, and they won't be overly worried about you academic ability. (3.6 from peer school, 720 gmat). Also, You worked in consulting at one of the feeder companies. If your fear is due to your limited experience, don't worry... You should know 2 years is pretty common for consulting b-school apps. So congrats, you check those boxes.

Now it's all about convincing adcom that you both need an mba to achieve your goals, and that Johnson is the best place for you to do that. With Johnson fit is huge, so I'd visit if possible.
Good luck!

Wait 2 - 3 more yrs and apply to an m7. If you want the small school experience, try Tuck or Yale SOM. You'll get more out of a better program than Johnson and have the background to get in.
