Hi marjun,

You've got solid stats as far as GMAT / GPA. I'm a bit confused by the chronology of events --- did you graduate from your Bachelors in 2019 and work before university? Most schools count post-Bachelors experience as part of their averages, so it's worth checking with some of your target schools to see how your years of experience lines up (and if they will accept distance education too, as some can be strict about that).

Otherwise your work achievements sound impressive and the mix of experience in the UK and Australia is great.

Are the ECAs current? If not, that is still impressive, but could be a slight weak point.

As it stands, I think some of your schools are pretty high reaches -- Harvard, Wharton, MIT specifically. But it's good to have a range of options.

Good luck!
Kate
