If someone works at a great company,(1000 person firm),
but it's not known because it isn't traded, can that
person still get into a top mba program.

It's in the oil.gas industry and is very profitable,
its specialized finance/accounting relating to new projects
and the young guy I'm talking about interfaces with the
CEO, CFO every week.

By the way, it was really hard to get hired. (The company
pays out a huge portion of profit to bonuses so they like
to keep hires on 'nepotism friendly' basis.
