My view is none of the attributes you state above would disqualify you. But they are not sufficient to say what your chances are. They are simply table-stakes (except age and race). As you already know, it’s very competitive. So the key is - what’s your differentiating and compelling story? What do you bring to the class of 20XX that the school should consider admitting you. Factors of leadership, rising above adversity, making a change, starting an organization, could go on and on... So. What’s your differentiating story? (You don’t have to answer, just sayin...)

Fair point. Frankly I’d sooner not go into the essays or stories for risk of giving myself away.

If you can crack a 750 on the gmat, your chances will be much better for the M7 given the stats

OP - you're looking good in terms of the basics. As you've said, the essays and interviews will be key. More so the essays. Since you want to do IB, I would recommend doing some research on the types of IB immersion programs each school has and how the programs will help you. Doing thorough research is always appreciated.
