Hey there,
Well I think overall you do seem to have a very nice profile. The major question for me is: How valuable is your Work Experience?

It's hard to see from here, because I am lacking detail. And with being self-employed, it can be tough. Basically you need to go out of your way to PROVE that your experience was challenging, relevant, impactful ...And the more you can prove (say by singing big contracts leading big teams, etc.) the better your chances will be.

Essentially, You have a good profile, and if you can tell a GREAT story, you should be able to do pretty well!
Best,
Jon Frank

Hi John,

thank you a lot for your feedback. Need an advice concerning application for MBA at HBS and Stanford. I have an option to apply now in R3 for both schools and in the worst case to reapplying R1 for the 2018 intake? Do you think its better to wait and to apply later in R1 2018(intake) or to apply now in R3 2017 intake and then once again in the worst case in R1 2018 intake? Would applying twice negatively affect my chances in R1 2018 intake? Thanks in advance.

Applying in R3 is a no-go, not unless you have a very very special and unique profile. Wait till R1 next year.

Best,
Jon

Hi Jon,

thank you for your quick comment. Do you mean applying twice would negative affect my chances to be accepted to the mentioned programs?

Thank you in advance.

Hey what I meant is that:
1. R3 is too hard anyways, and it's not worth taking the chance.
2. Apply R1 one year and R1 next year doesn't usually make sense as so little time passes between applications that you don;t have enough time to prove real improvement, which is the basis of any reapplication.

I hope this makes sense,
Best,
JF
