As long as you can tell a coherent story in your application and interview, it's totally fine. Sometimes, while you're writing multiple applications, your intentions for one school can bleed into the other. Watch out for that. I ultimately stuck with one thing, and will just work out my other stuff upon matriculation.

To make it easier on yourself, you could talk about fin tech, so you're not playing mental gymnastics while you're writing your application. When I applied to the Consortium, I didn't have that luxury, because the Why MBA core essay was sent to all the schools I applied through the Consortium. Booth isn't a part of it, so no worries.

I don’t think you should go to b-school yet

This may be a dumb question but what is the Consortium?

The Consortium is for people whose mission is to elevate those who identify as African, Hispanic, and/or Native American in the business world. You don't have to identify as any of them to be a part of it. I don't, and have met plenty of people who don't (i.e. white, Asian…). As long as you can demonstrate that you've worked to elevate them, and apply to and attend schools that are a part of the Consortium, you could be considered in the network, and accepted for a full tuition scholarship.
