    You’ve racked up some very strong work experience with quite a few accomplishments that make you a likely admit to the schools on your target list. And by the way, I think you picked excellent schools with fantastic MBA programs given your sub-700 GMAT score and graduation from a non-IIT school. Your involvement in and experience with fintech will make you a highly valued classmate and I think Georgetown would greatly benefit from your presence in its classrooms. Make sure your recommenders sign your praises and amplify the core messages in your application and you should be getting good news from McDonough.
