Hi there,

Thanks for your post. Did you go to university in the US or no? The 2.4 if on a US scale would likely be a deal breaker, especially for CBS & Booth, if not for all. What is your nationality? Applicants from Africa are less common and may fare better in the process for example. The 730 is solid. Glad to hear your recommendations will be steller as far as you know. I'd play up the advisory board experiences, and the startup from uni you described, and any leadership experiences and examples of impact at work, to increase your chances. Any top 5-7 or so schools will always be tough no matter what, so for better chances add some more in the 12-25 range too if you would consider them, and you may also receive more scholarship opportunities at such schools as well. Good luck!
