Hi there!

I think you fit the profile well for what the 2+2 program is seeking, since you come from a STEM major and have an interest in startups too. As far as your academic stats, your GMAT is excellent, that will help your chances. Your UG GPA is a little low (2+2 average is 3.67) but your Grad GPA is very high, so hopefully the two balance each other out (though I'm not certain how HBS will view the two, since not all applicants have both).

I also like the mix of experience you've had at start ups and established companies, hopefully you can reflect on how that experience has informed your future career plans.

The main challenge is proving that you have the leadership qualities that HBS is looking for, in particular the non-technical ones. If you can do that through your club involvement or other activities, then I think you'll be competitive. And of course telling your story in a compelling/interesting way will help you stand out from other applicants.

The 2+2 program is extremely competitive, so even if you're not successful, don't give up on your MBA dreams. I've seen several applicants not get in to 2+2 but then get in to HBS or another M7 later on.

Best of luck!
Kate
