ISB, Tepper, and Duke are stretches. I am not familiar enough with SP jain to comment. You have a competitive profile for NUS, Carroll, Mays and Maryland.

Best,
Linda

Hi Linda
Thank you for your help
Can you pls help me with school selection. I would really appreciate your help!!

Below is my profile in brief
Gmat - 690 (Q 47 & V39)
AWA - 4.5 and IR - 7

I have about 2.5 yrs exp in IT (would be 3.5 by the time course starts next yr)
Prior to this I worked in my family business for about an yr and did some teaching too. I am an Indian

I still work with my dad on weekends, So i have about 4 yrs of experience
I want to do MBA in Finance or MIS. I would like to apply in colleges where i have good chances of scholarships. Tuition is also a criteria for selecting colleges

Below are the schools that I have finalized and what my counselor says my chances are

Ohio(fisher) - Competitive
Rutgers - Medium
Texas A&M - Competitive
UI - urbana champaign - Competitive
Pittsburgh - Katz - Meduim- competitive
Temple - Backup
Notheastern- Medium
Connecticut - meduim- competitive

Pls let me know if the list is good or should i apply to any other college
Also if you can mention any one university in top 20 where I have a chance of atleast getting an interview call, it would be great

Thanks for your help. I really appreciate it !!

I'm actually less familiar with these programs than with those in the top 20 so I'm not sure I can advise you well.

You have a competitive profile and decent chance at all these schools. (I'm assuming good grades.) I'm a little surprised Baruch is a backup. If you want finance, it's at the heart of the financial world. While it doesn't have the brand of the other NYC schools, I think it should definitely be on your list and could end up giving you a scholarship. You may also want to consider Thunderbird and Darla Moore, if you are really interested in international business.

You may also want to consider UNC and Georgetown if you want to apply a little higher up the rankings..

Best,
Linda
