    There’s little doubt in my mind that b-school is in your future. It’s not a question of if, it’s a question of when.

For HBS specifically, to max your chances, I’d probably want to see a bit more leadership in university but I know these profiles can be somewhat superficial sometimes. That being said, I think you still have a decent shot. I wish you …
