I just turned 23 , i am from india

GMAT-710(Q47 V 41) taken on 23rd dec'10 this was my first attempt
ENGINEERING -(non -IIT) 73%( top 10% of the graduating class)

I passed out this year in june'10 so I have a very limited work ex
- working for TMH ( online cat classes-admission test for IIM's in india ) , i write CR And RC questions for them [6 months]
- working full time as an educational consultant for 2 schools in my hometown( the schools cater to more than 2,500 students), i create modules to make classroom education more practical and fun eg i have created financial modules to help kids undertand basics of sharemarkets etc..[6 MONTHS]
-Used to teach mnemonics ( 2-years ) on a part time basis during my engineering and a later became a consultant in the same schools.

Extracurrics:
1) played for U-14,U-16 ,and U-19 state cricket team
2) Stood 3rd in a singing comptt. organised by the state govt.
3) had my own band
4) have been working with a non -profit organization

my targeted schools are - Georgia tech, vanderbilt

would really like inputs from experts
will be really grateful if people can suggest schools to me based on my profile. I am really struggling with the selection of schools.

My strongest advice to you would be to attempt to get finance related experience before going for the MIF.

You have a competitive profile for Gerogeia Tech, Purdue and Vanderbilt. I don't believe you would be competitive at MIT.

Best,
Linda
