Hi Veritas, I'd be extremely appreciative if you could evaluate my chances at the following schools: Stern, Columbia, Wharton. Thanks in advance!

GRE: Quant 164 (90 percentile); Verbal: 165 (95%), Written 4.5 (73%)
School: Queen's University (Canada's Dartmouth), 3.4/4.3 GPA
Volunteering: 2005 - youth mentoring program (Cape Town, South Africa townships); 2009 - member of local charity campaign; 2012 - created voluntary cross-entity research group at work
Work: 5 years experience at major Canadian financial firm; no promotions (flat organizational structure), but steady salary raises; I've been afforded a lot of responsibility/privilege for someone my age; strong recommendations (however neither is from a director or managing director).
Essays: Should be strong - I have a unique and (very biased, but I believe) compelling story why I want to get my MBA.
Other: Well-rounded extracurriculars; I'm a white Canadian guy that works in finance - this doesn't help!

Actually Canada is fairly under-represented in US schools because there are so many good places to get an MBA in Canada, most students stay there. I think you should have a shot at your target schools, especially if you are correct in being able to cast your story in a convincing fashion to the adcoms. A bit odd maybe that you have never been promoted in five years, unless that's just how it's done there or something. In any case, you may want to address this in your essays, since the US equivalent of you would have had opportunities to move up in five years at least once if not twice.
