Hi there,

Congrats on the 720 GMAT, that is excellent! Generally, without knowing a ton about you so far, I would think you have a good shot at the schools on your list with Booth being perhaps a reach for you. Schools are definitely looking for qualified female applicants, and you have the quant skills for sure, though lower-than-average amount of work experience that is pretty technical in nature... I suggest trying to highlight any non-technical sides to you as well, which it sounds like you do have. Wishing you good luck, let us know if you have add'l questions!

Hey,
Thank you so much for this valuable insight.I did a lot of research and realized that most of the schools I have sent my scores to might be far out of my reach.I am going ahead and applying to ISB.
Which B-schools in US you think I should apply to?
Personally I have been looking into Tepper,Indiana Kelley, McCombs and Rice.
Do I match up to these schools and vice-versa?Which others you think I should look into?

Hi there,

I am not sure I'd go so far as to say those schools are completely out of reach; with strong essays you may have a shot with your 720 and being a well qualified female applicant. But ideal schools are likely in the 10-25 range, yes, and the schools you mentioned last seem reasonable!
