Hi this is my second try last year I got 640 , I gave this time hoping to cross 700 but got 670.

I am planning to apply below colleges,

1. McCombs
2. Notre Dame
3. Tuck

I have 6+WE in Banking and Finance.

Any suggestions, I am an international student from India.

With 670, Tuck will be a big stretch. McCombs and Notre Dame will be hard, but doable.

What do you want to do post-MBA? Where are you looking to work (Asia, Europe, US)?

Scholarship is a mystery for most. I wouldn't worry about scholarship unless it's absolutely necessary. It's hard enough to get admitted to a top b-school in the US, let alone asking for scholarship. If you absolutely want scholarship, you need to look at schools in the range of top 40-60 to perhaps garner a higher possibility of scholarship.

With a 3.5 and a 670, your school selection should be around top 15 to top 35. I think you have a shot at Ross, Darden, and Duke, but I wouldn't worry too much about the top 10. If your goal is to enter one of the top 10 schools (which I assumed you don't since your original list starts at the 20 level), just choose one or two schools. Your focus should be around top 20-30, such as Georgetown, UNC, and USC. But with these schools, scholarships are still just a mystery to everyone.

I think most people go by USNews for ranking and most have it down to a certain understanding that no matter what ranking says what, that H/S/W are top 3, Columbia, Tuck, MIT, Kellogg, and Booth make it to the top 8 (along with H/S/W), and that follows by Haas, Duke, Ross, Darden, NYU, UCLA, and Yale to the top 15. Of course, opinions differ.

Here's the link to the USNews ranking. http://grad-schools.usnews.rankingsandreviews.com/best-graduate-schools/top-business-schools/mba-rankings

Notre Dame and McCombs should be doable given your profile.
