I would start here -

http://www.businessweek.com/bschools/rankings/

Business Week provides good profiles of each school, including percentage of the class that receives financial aid, as well as percentage of class from international backgrounds.

If there is anyway you can take the GMAT before January you may want to consider it. Taking it in January doesn't leave you a lot of time to get your apps together and submitted for R2 (which is the round you want to apply in, R3 is much harder). It also doesn't allow you a lot of time to retake should you need too. Unless of course, you are planning on applying in 2010?

Hope this helps.

Hi Rizoana,
nobody can tell you which schools to apply to since everyone looks for different things in their schools of choice. I would recommend doing some research about the schools through this forum, Business Week, and the schools websites, so you can find which program fits you best. Most US MBA programs accept a good number of international students so the fact that you are international should not be an issue. When it comes to financial aid, some schools provide it based on merit and others, based on need. You are more likely to receive financial aid if you are above the average student profile for a school, so aim for the best possible GMAT score you can get and look for programs that would see you as fairly competitive when compared to other candidates who apply there.
