Would really appreciate your thoughts on my competitiveness for HBS, Wharton, Stanford and Kellogg

Background: Moved to the US with $20,000 to my uncle house for my education. I worked full time while I was in college and graduated with a 3.3 GPA as a finance major and was the president of my graduating class. I attended an average state school, think Maryland, Penn State, Rutgers etc. After college I co-founded 2 non-profits that now employ over 30 people and we are planning to expand nationally, one of these non-profits is the fastest growing non-profit in NYC. For my work I was recognized by President Obama and Mayor Bloomberg. All the organizations I have been a part of have also been featured in the press i.e. NYT, Bloomberg etc.

Work Experience: I started in back office at Merrill Lynch where I worked for 2.5 years, then moved to a top 10 investment banking in M&A for 2 years and am now working at one of the top 5 technology firms in silicon valley in their venture capital and acquisitions team. Most of the folks on my team are from the top 3 b-schools. Have a total of 5.5 years of experience.

GMAT: 680

Age: 26

Most MBA goal: I'd like to progress in the VC space

Nationality: Pakistan

Thanks a lot for your help!

Wow! Very impressive profile. Frankly, I think you're a great candidate for these programs... strong leadership experience both professionally and in the community. The only caveat in your profile that I see is your GMAT score. It's not quite where we'd want to see it for these schools. Any chance of retaking and hitting 700+?

Congratulations on your success - it's great that you're already in the VC/tech space at such a young age (makes your VC goals more credible) and amazing that you have two burgeoning non-profits to your name. I'm sure any program would be lucky to have you.

Good luck,
