Hi there,

Great that you're applying together! Definitely note that to the admissions committee in your applications! I've had clients in the past where when there is a double admit they will offer scholarships to at least one person in the couple so the overall cost is not as high. I've seen this a few times.

Anyway, it looks like you both have competitive profiles but a few notes:
- You are now at the higher end of the experience range for most schools on your list. Note that HBS over the last few years has seemed to have a preference for younger candidates who are earlier in their careers (2-3 years). This is just anecdotal and with the new dean, we're all waiting to see, but something to keep in mind.
- As Indian engineers who work in technology you are competing in a VERY competitive group. As such you'll really want to focus on your other characteristics (your experience in Nigeria and with an NGO etc).
- Leadership is key. There are so many people with strong profiles like yours who I see focus on their technical skills versus their higher-level strategy and leadership skills. This is a huge mistake. It matters less "what" the output of your project was - it matters more "how" you led the team. Please keep that in mind as you write your essays and you'll already start distinguishing yourself.

Hope this helps and feel free to reach out if you have any additional questions. We've worked with many successful Indian applicants over the years! Best of luck!
