Hi deyaaa,

Thank you for your post. Based on what you shared, I believe that you have a strong combination of academic credentials and scores, research and emerging expertise in cutting-edge fields that are going to define the future of business (and many things), a good internship with a well known firm, and some very interesting and unique leadership, mentorship, and community experiences. In short, I would say that if you feel the draw to apply, you should feel empowered to do so.

Wharton is highly competitive, of course, deferred MBA programs can be even more competitive (and a bit of a black box, at times), and the next big steps for you are going to be channeling all of these things into your story, essays, resume, recommendations, and application in a compelling manner. But you've got a strong base from which to give it a try! If you are looking for formal guidance as you take those next steps and consider how to maximize the value and uniqueness of your story, please feel free to sign up for a Free Consultation: https://www.avantiprep.com/free-consultation.html

Thanks!
Greg
