Natural fit: You have this and that interests and you seek those schools with similar interests

Artificial fit: You choose your schools of dreams (a few ones) and try to make yourself fit by swimming down their mainstreams

I love Ross and Tuck, I have scrutinized their faculty profile: They are somehow in line with me. Research Interests like pricing, decision making, advertising. I will focus on producing papers in these fields during this one year I have before application.

Of course I don't mean to fool yourself! They are my real interests, I just concentrate on them with deeper focus and motivation.

It's win-win, isn't it. even if I cant get in there, I still have my papers and there are still near elite schools going along with my interests.

What do you think? Any drawback to this?

And how do you add a merit to your app package after submitting it, e.g when your article gets accepted or you do an outstanding ex-curricular when you have sent your package?

I'm not exactly sure what you are talking about. Are you applying to the Ph.D program or something? Why are you writing research papers?
