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-

- Basic Info: 28 year old Male from U.S. (Southeast)
- Education: 3.3 GPA; Business Major from Top 25 University (Public)
- GMAT: 710 - V: 42 (95%), Q: 44 (68%); AWA: 5.0
- Work Exp: 6 years total
W1: 1 year; analyst with a small (<$100MM AUM) long/short strategy hedge fund.
W2: 4 years; joined Large Regional (non-Bulge Bracket) Investment Bank as an analyst; promoted to associate after two years.
W3: 1 year; left previous role to diversify industry experience for a risk management position with Bulge Bracket Investment Bank covering trading counterparties - finanical institutions and hedge funds.

Extracurriculars: Member and volunteer for a membership board of an art museum. Prior to moving a year ago, I played bass in a local band in Charlotte, NC for 3 years - played multiple benefit shows for local charities and released an album in 2008.

Short term goal: Post-MBA I want to go into general management strategy consulting, or find a management strategy position with a low-tech comsumer products company. Geographically, I have a very strong interest in relocating to NYC.

Schools (Game Plan): R1 - NYU (Stern) & Yale SOM; R2/Non-ED - Columbia GSB & UVA (Darden); R3 - UT Austin (McCombs) & Georgetown (McDonough)

I may not be able to offer any advice, but I have a question of my own.

Have you considered part time MBA? There are many good colleges such as Kelly (Indiana) and Florida offering online MBA, allowing you to continue your job and have a degree.

I am leaning towards online MBA, and may be your perspective will be helpful to me (or my question helpful to you!).
