I am a French male, 27 years, looking for an evaluation profile. I am planning to apply for Fall 2013 intake.
I have a 5 year work experience as follows:

Project: Develop volumes sold to regional customers and increase share of market in hypermarkets Responsibilities: Leader, Negotiation with central buying service Results: 2% increase in share of market and + 0,5% in volume for 2011 in spite of a difficult economic context Methodology: Optimization of the 4 P’s. Development of the range sold in stores.
I worked as an Area Manager for Cadbury/Kraft foods (For 2 years) in France and Luxembourg

I worked as a Project Manager at Galeries Lafayette (Biggest French department store) (1 year)
Projects: Rethink the organization of a 3,500 square meters back-office surface (215 employees) /Remodelling of a commercial floor (2,500 square meters
Responsibilities: Project Leader Results: 65% Costs Reduction compared to forecasts; Creation of a new synergy between the different departments; Creation of surface for other projects (Confidential Projects) Methodology: Analysis and Diagnosis of the needs of each department; Internal Audit; Participative Management; Planning of the different actions; Competitive tenders; R.O.I. forecasts
Besides, my GMAT score is 650.
After my mba, I want to work in the consulting field, specialized in Marketing or even in the energy field.
My target schools are :
- UT Austin - Georgetown - Boston College - University of Connecticut (UConn)
I would appreciate you give me others schools I could reach!
France is actually under-represented in US business schools, so I would encourage you to reach for top 10 schools. Your experience would translate well into brand management, which is a very ripe recruiting field for employers who visit b-schools for hiring. You might at least target 2-3 good schools in the top 10 such as Duke, UNC, Ross, and Northwestern (Kellogg) to be your "reach Schools."
That's a good list. BC and Conn would likely be your safety schools, Although McDonough should have a lot of interest in you since they value their international program and would benefit from having Western Europeans in the classroom.
