    You must have had a good time at Lehigh based on that GPA which will give Yale SOM some pause. But you have certainly more than made up for it, with your 3.52 in law school, the 3.96 in your master of laws, and a GMAT score that is above the SOM class average of 721. You clearly have some solid experience and business schools like accomplished young lawyers in the class. More often that not, it takes lawyers a longer time to realize they hate their profession and then go into an Executive MBA program to get out of it.

The drawback of this will be less work experience compared to your peers. I would want to dig into why this is the right time for you to get an MBA. And how an MBA is going to help you get a role at a development firm. It sounds like you’ve done clerking and work with your family business which you should definite build into your essays and/or an optional essay. Not knowing your verbal/quant breakdown, you will want to make sure you can show that you have the quantitative ability required for B school. …
