    With a bunch of invites to interview in your pocket, you are in very good shape. You have lots of great experience and the basic numbers to match. Your creative writing background will make you standout. Your issue will ultimately be in deciding where to go. I sense that scholarship money will probably make a difference to you and I think you will get a number of offers with money attached to them. And congrats, by the way, on your selection of a really good range of schools.

    Hi, Ms. Teaching-to-Tech, Julie-Anne Heafey here with mbaMission. Wow, congratulations on a slew of interview invitations! I can’t say I’m surprised…you’ve got a lot of terrific things in your profile that schools would find attractive.

Depends really how the GRE is split, I assume with CRW, you are more poet than quant. Shame about the rec. I feel like with basic numbers like yours they are super important to make your profile “sing”

    I like the mix of TFA and Tech - best of both worlds. Shows an ability to understand complexity and make complexity understandable. Fairly good GRE and GPA. The 7+ years of experience, post-UG, bodes well for you.
