Hi there,

Thanks for your post. Overall you have a solid GMAT, and some respectable work experience. As you said, lots of autonomy in the role with goals and responsibility, and I like that you have been able to truly do some business management in your role. You also have some undergraduate involvement which is a plus, though more recent community involvement would be even more ideal.

I think your school list is fairly appropriate, with Kellogg being a potential reach program from the list for sure, but some others that are more within your grasp. As for the very top global and US programs, that would be more difficult. Right now I believe given how competitive the process is and how many qualified applicants get turned away, that the M7 and top programs would be a stretch. If you really want to include one, sure thing, but keep other options on the list as well.

Good luck and work on showing what makes YOU unique through your essays and applications! Let us know if you'd like to speak further.
