Anyone that will chime in here, please have a look at my profile below and the schools I'm considering. I believe NYU or Yale SOM would be ideal schools for me in terms of fit and I plan to apply to both for R1, but I would like feedback regarding my admission prospects with each of the schools I have chosen. Thank you-
