You have some interesting tidbits that should make sharing 25 random things fun. I encourage you to showcase what you have learned from your time as a musician and how you have increased your perspective through global travel and work. Given the competitive demographic you come from, you will need to improve your GMAT in order to get serious consideration for the FTMBA program.
