    I see our editors asked for a bit more detail. That would really be necessary to better accurate your shot at Stanford. Startups are fine but business schools will want info that allows them to determine whether you are running a lemonade stand or a business with impact. They will want to know if you were successful at getting investors to put their money behind your venture, your growth rates, how many people you employ and how different your business model is. Your acceptance at Darden is terrific, however. I am sure you provided the schools with the info to get you admitted. Congrats on Darden. Superb school and excellent MBA experience.
