      Hi there,

      in general: The HEC places much emphasis on your gpa. So, if you GPA is top at your school, you have higher chances. GPA expectations at ESSEC should be a but lower than at HEC. GMAT average score at HEC is 710. So, with your GRE you are - at least in the Q part - better than average, which should increase your chances. Your practical experience sounds interesting!

      So, I would definitely apply at both schools, and maybe add a third one.

      best wishes
