Hi salmanqsm4,

Thanks for posting, you have a strong candidacy. Your numbers indicate that you have the intellect and focus to thrive in a top tier MBA program. Nothing about your story makes me think there is any reason why you cannot be admitted, but nothing stands out telling me why you should be admitted. All of the reasons why a top program would admit you are in the details of your work experience, personal experiences, personality, values and overall story.

If you'd like, we provide free school specific advice for the programs you are considering here:

Harvard: ... ss-school/
Stanford: ... -business/

We also provide free 30 minute phone consultations here:
