Thanks for the posting.

You have the potential to be admitted to many top programs is you (a) submit strong applications and (b) address the quant portion of your GMAT which I would like to see above the 80th percentile. If you are able to address these two factors -- which submitting a strong application is totally under your control, I see an applicant who would be attractive to many top programs.

Based on the limited information you provided, I would recommend that you research the following programs further:

Wharton
Columbia
MIT - Sloan
Chicago - Booth
Kellogg

If you are looking for a fellowship, I recommend that you look at:

Booth
UCLA

If you would a free candidacy assessment, please contact our office so we can speak further.

Hi Kim,

I'm actually very interested in INSEAD, Columbia, Wharton, and Booth. However, I'm not sure if I'd be a strong candidate to apply to these schools.
My top choice is actually INSEAD, so I'm wondering if you have an expert dedicated to this school.

How much does fellowship gives towards tuition at Booth and Berkeley (do you have any idea)?

Thanks!

What is your citizenship.

A general rule about MBA programs is that they are not very generous with scholarships -- as they assume that you will make a lot of money when you graduate and thus be able to repay debt. I would not count on any fellowship money.

There are however a few programs out there which are quite generous, but for most you must be a United States citizen or permanent resident.
