    My favorite part of your profile is under your Big Life Wins. You “managed” to publish a business strategy research paper as an engineer and won an award! That means you have the strategy chops in addition to your technical skills. Your GMAT score is below the average for Kellogg but not completely out of the question. GPA is a concern, and might be helped by a higher GMAT or GRE score. Your sports blog experience is intriguing and could set you apart from other applicants.

    Your impressive work experience renders you imminently employable in a broad range of industries immediately post-MBA, but PE will not likely be an option immediately after MBA and the AdCom will know this.

    I think you should really emphasize your wins in your start up role. Emphasizing your well-roundedness and versatility is a big plus as well. Your GMAT is on par with each school.

Best of luck and blessings to you!!
