Mr. Tech Finance

About Me:

I decided I want to get an MBA relatively late in the game (just turned 28) and am curious what the community thinks my chances are. I went to Duke/Johns Hopkins/Northwestern/Tufts and majored in Economics and minored in math. I currently work at a tech start-up and before that, I worked at a large healthcare company.
