I would greatly appreciate any feedback you can provide.Thanks!

7) When you plan to apply? Please specify round and application cycle
7) Your post-MBA goals
I would like to work in product management, possibly for a company in the technology sector. I greatly enjoy the entrepreneurial nature of managing a product's life cycle from inception to execution and would like to use my mba to do this on a larger scale.
My problem- I feel that I have an atypical background from many other aspiring applicants. Though I've excelled in every environment, both academically and professionally, I lack the prestigious undergrad and blue chip work experience that is commonly seen in other top applicants. I've always been a big fish in a small pond and fear that I may not fit the mold. Can this be overcome?
