Born and raised in England, moved to the states when I was ten. Illegal for 15 years, but made the best of every situation. Offers at top companies that I couldn’t accept due to being illegal. 2 promotions in 3 years, and de facto lead engineer on site.

Target School: Kellogg
Considering: McCombs School of Business
Accepted: McCombs School of Business
What a powerful story you have. And congrats on your acceptance to McCombs. I’m not sure here but it looks to me that you may be hoping to get an admit from Kellogg. I see your GMAT was waived which could make a Kellogg admit a bit of a long shot, unfortunately. In any case, McCombs is a fantastic program and you will do well there. I also believe an MBA from McCombs will allow you to reach your goal.
