I think you have a shot at these schools for sure. That said, we'd need to know more about you to say how strong a shot & to what extent these schools fall into the reach vs. competitive category. A lot will depend on the specific impact you've had at work & the achievements you can speak to there as well as the reasons for your post-MBA goals (why is this your passion) and the impact you aspired to have there. At the end of the day you've got the stats that it takes to get into these top schools, but a strong b-school application is about more than just stats. You need to show your unique value proposition & prove to the schools why they should take you over an equally strong candidate. That comes through via your work examples but also in how you talk about WHY your work/goals are your passion as well as what you convey about who you are as a person. B-school apps are becoming increasingly personal.

If you'd like to speak in more detail & with more specifics definitely reach out to us & we can get you set up with a free consultation with one of our MBA consultants, who can talk through it all with you & give you a better sense based on more detail rom you. Feel free to reach out to Claudia at claudia@admissionado.com and she can get you set up!

Hope that helps!
