Hi,

I'm currently a 22 year old Asian male seeking admission to the top 5 business schools (hopefully HBS) in several years. Here are my qualifications:
-750 GMAT (48Q, 44V, 8 IR, 6.0 AWA) - the computer froze at the end of the math section so I'm confident it could have been a 770 because I always got 51 or 50 on practice tests and I studied engineering in college so they shouldn't doubt my quantitative skills
-3.6 GPA in Electrical Engineering (one of the hardest majors at my school) from Duke
-Worked 1 year as a consultant for a software company but really didn't enjoy the work and am quitting very soon (high starting salary, high turnover at this company)
-Starting a company in Asia with a buddy of mine who recently graduated from Harvard that is one of those SAT Prep/College Consulting gigs (very lucrative in large Asian cities right now)

Our plan is to build this business for 3-5 years and then potentially IPO and sell it, cash out, and come back to the States to attend a top business school. We're pretty confident we'll make the business work and have several hundred thousands in Venture Capital funding already. Because I'm very young right now, I would like advice on how to best position myself for maximum chance at a top business school. I know my career path is a bit non-traditional so I would like advice on how to proceed in these next few years and build a wonderful story.

Thanks!

One thing I would like to ask about:
I'm about to leave my job to go full-time for this start up but I'm not leaving my job on good terms. Will this be a big deal? I feel like by the time I apply in a few years, this job will be such a small part of my story that it won't even matter. Long story short, I felt really disrespected at this company and was treated poorly so I started performing poorly and basically am playing a waiting game (I have to stay 1 year or else I give back my signing bonus).
