I will appreciate if you could provide me with some B schools I can target. My preference is US .
I am confused regarding some colleges so I am providing you with the full list.

1.) UCLA

3.) Darden
4.) Fuqua
5.) Cornell
6.) Tuck
7.) UC Davis
8.) Stern
9.) Tepper

Long list :-D Please let me know if I can aim for any other colleges.

Thank you for your time. :) appreciate it.

Hey there good sir,
First of all thanks for writing us!


Now, I don't have really great news for you, I'm afraid (although not too bad either). the thing is that although you have some good stuff in your profile, you are coming from a mega-huge applicant pool, which is challenging in all aspects and especially the GMAT. As it is now, from the outside, you have a pretty "middle of the road" candidacy, but your GMAT is lower than the average at all schools you listed (plus you can assume that Indians are probably getting accepted with MORE than the average GMAT... So, what does that mean practically speaking? That in order to build a good strategy for you, that will get you an accept you need to do one of two things:
1. Retake the GMAT
2. Compromise on your school list, and add a few schools in which your GMAT would be higher than the average.

Soo, I wrote above that it's not "too bad" and it's not, because it's not like you can't apply to ANY of these schools, some school (davis for example) have intake averages which are only like 20 points higher than your score, which puts you close to the middle, so you have some shot..... buuuut you don't want to apply to schools where you are systematically less good than all applicants!

Hope this helps you out buddy

Hello Jon

Thank you very much for reviewing you profile.
I totally agree on the above GMAT score of the Indians :) . Retaking will be a very difficult scenario for me.

Can you suggest some schools for me looking at the profile right now ??

Thanks once again.

Well there are a lot of schools out there my friend, and I don't want to arbitrarily tell you "apply here" without knowing your location preferences, more about you in terms of fit, etc. etc. but let's say generally speaking - if you apply to two schools at which your GMAT is say 20+ points over the average and you add that into your strategy it will help a lot. You will have some "sweet spot" school in the 25-50 rankings (this is very approximate), and that's a good place to start thinking about what is right for you.
