Hi, please evaluate my profile:

I'm a 25 year old, Indonesian male
GMAT 710 (predicted, plan to take on late May)
GPA 3.72 (Bachelor of Medicine/MD) from top 5 university in the country
Several online courses on computer science, finance, and social sciences

Work experience
2 years internship as a resident doctor in top public hospital
1+ year (and running) as a cofounder and CTO at an award winning, VC funded mobile health technology startup

Programming since 10
Classical guitarist and play in a band
Head of journalism club while in school
Active member in the startup community in Jakarta
Won several business plan competitions

Volunteer activities
Several months of teaching at underpriveleged areas
Family doctor at primary health care centers in poor villages
Organized several public health events (vaccination awareness, cervical cancer seminar, etc)

Reason for MBA
I was sort of disillusioned after med school. Figure out how little a single doctor can do in term of helping patients, when the healthcare system in Indonesia is pretty much broken. I started a mobile health company to try to solve that and it went pretty well but feel that I've reached the point where I need help. Hope that MBA will provide me the skills and knowledge to start a startup in health technology or biotech.

Target schools: Stanford, Sloan, Haas, HBS, Tuck

How are my chances?

Also, since I'm not a typical applicant and also not a native speaker I highly consider getting an admission consultant. However I don't have any idea on how to choose one and when to get help (after GMAT? after my first set of essays?). I plan to admit on round one next October.

Hi pascalchristian,

Wow - you seem like a very strong, very interesting candidate and potentially a very good fit for your target schools. I think you can really benefit from some help shaping your story and marketing it to your schools. Not sure about other firms but we definitely start before first set of essays is written, and can start before or after GMAT. After is fine if you want to really focus on GMAT first and then move on to apps next.

How should one choose an admissions consultant? We believe in getting on the phone, having a conversation and getting a feel for our style. If you like the approach our company takes you can then speak with some consultants to make sure the individual consultant is a great fit for you. No one person is the best match for everyone so you need to screen and see what feels right. We provide free 30 minute phone consultations here:
