    I don’t need to tell you or anyone else: MBB on your resume is a little like pixie dust. It goes a long way and works a bit of magic because those jobs are so highly selective and sought after. And your heart and soul clearly align with your smarts and credentials to make for a powerful candidate at LBS. Your age is ideal. Your extras are impressive. Your stats are in line. So you will definitely get an interview and then it’s really up to how well you perform. I can’t imagine you not impressing.
