    Hi Mr. Robotics,
    This is Debbie Choy, GSB alum and Senior Consultant at mbaMission weighing in on your profile. I’m impressed by your entrepreneurial drive and success with YCombinator and other accelerators. Pivoting to work at another startup is normal in this journey, and shows your willingness to adapt and learn from others. Business schools, especially Stanford, are looking for applicants who have these qualities.

The GPA is clearly lower due to your health issues that year, so just mention that in an optional essay saying that the last 3 years were 3.5 and I don’t think that will weigh …

    Not crazy about that GPA and at Stanford at least your GMAT score doesn't really make up for it. Add Carnegie Mellon's Tepper School to your mix.
