Dear MAC Approved,

Please could you provide me with an evaluation of my profile:

28yo male, Korean (US & UK Citizen)
Columbia University, Mechanical Engineering, 3.67, graduated 2011
GMAT: 760/99%, Q: 49/78%, V: 44/98%, AWA: 6.0/91%, IR: 8/92%
Fellowship program, 7 months (including internship ngo in D.C.)
Operated 30 seat restaurant in Seoul, 1.5 years
Healthcare internship 1 month
Medical Device Startup 6 months (current)

Captain of rugby club, Columbia University
Teach North Korean Refugees, Tutor

I applied to Rd 2 last year to the following schools:
Wharton (rejected)
CBS (rejected)
Ross (waitlisted without interview, rejected)
Fuqua (waitlisted without interview, rejected)
Johnson (MBA/MHA dual degree - accepted, but couldn't attend for personal reasons)

This year I am targeting the following schools:

I hope to work in a strategy role in the healthcare industry and have been trying to target schools with good healthcare programs.

I understand that I have a very patchy work history (several gaps greater than 3 months) and an apparent lack of focus (which I have tried to correct by joining my current company, a medical device startup) - but I am curious as to whether my target list of schools seems appropriate. Your evaluation and advice would be very much appreciated.

Thank you.
