Actually, I think your plan is a little optimistic…. Of course, there’s a lot I don’t know about your profile, such as your record of leadership, impact, and achievement at work, but from the information provided, I think MIT is a very high reach. And it would be a long shot to get funding/scholarship from Ross. I also believe it would not be wise to expect full scholarships out of Texas and Emory – more likely partial.

Good luck!
