Hi questfor750,

You have a very interesting and strong candidacy. I want to stress that with business school applications, admissions teams are going to look beyond your numbers- they are going to look into your personal essays and recommendations to see the candidate. Make sure not to overlook these parts of your application. An important question you will need to address is, "Why an MBA?", particularly given your medical background.

Here are some articles with advice about the schools you are interested in:

If you are interested, we also provide free 30 minute phone consultations here:
