it's a reach, but apply to Northwestern

ETA: focus on your work experience and write all the extra essays and whatnot. Have one/some of your recommenders fill out the CPE form too.

Thanks. I actually did that, wrote the management essay and had my current boss do their CPE. I know it's a reach, but I have my fingers crossed!
