GMAT : 690 (Q49, V34)
GPA : 3.27 (UC Davis)
Passed all three CFA examinations, work experience verification pending
Location : Philadelphia, PA
Ethnicity : Indian (Male)

Work experience (4.5 years as of now)
I currently work at an asset management firm allocating capital to hedge funds. I manage two people and have had a good track record of performance here. In addition, I know my supervisor would give me a great rec. I worked at another Hedge Fund of Funds prior to here for 2 years before starting here 2 years ago. I intend to return to my current job after b-school but need certain technical skills/soft skills to move up the ladder and take myself to the next level.

Extra-curricular
On the board of a charity that helps suffering women (death of husband if primary bread-earner etc)
Speak 6 languages
Have been to 40 countries and have grown up in 4 including the US, Portugal, Singapore and India.

I'm thinking of focusing on Duke, Cornell and NYU. Thoughts? Should I expand? And if so, which ones? What would be three reach and three target schools?

Thanks!

Overall things look pretty good. Okay, your GMAT score is a bit average, but I feel you make up for it by having actual leadership in an asset management firm, which is really not all that common. With strength in other aspects of your application (like community service, etc.) you can have a quite good profile. The three schools you have chosen are good classic schools for your industry. On the slightly easier side of things you can look at Ross, Anderson, Tepper and Darden. A good stretch school would be Columbia, or Booth.

This is a super rough estimate BTW cause I don't yet know all that much about your profile.. but it can get you started hopefully!
