I honestly have no idea how this will hurt my chances, anyone have an idea? :

What's the highest tier BS I would have a shot at?

I'm 27 and not a minority. Went to a state school right out of high school and failed horribly for a few semesters, very low GPA (highest grade B+, lots of F's).

Worked in a restaurant after that , went from bus boy to manager, worked for about 7-8 years. While in the later years of work, went to community college for nine classes, then UNC - Greensboro for 18 more classes.

Those 27 classes after I went back to school were all straight A's, so technically I graduated form UNC-Greensboro with a 4.0 GPA in Economics, which is what employers see and what is on my resume. I assume that any Bizz School will want to see all transcripts from any school I went (it seems to be the case), so there is no hiding the old bad grades.
Since graduating, I've worked in a corp finance job for about a year. Have NOT taken GMAT, I'm in the early process of thinking about an MBA.
Thanks for any thoughts!

Well its hard to say since you haven't taken your GMAT and thats a major factor in admission, given you are applying next year I would recommend taking the GMAT and circling back with me. Your undergrad transcript and work experience will be your biggest challenges. The schools will certainly see your first set of transcripts but you have had a remarkable turnaround which they certainly will commend you on, so it will be key to explain your education gap and highlight the value of your work experience
