Help me selecting b-schools for my profile [#permalink] New post 14 Jun 2012, 02:04
Need your advice in finalizing the b-schools for my MBA. let me brief you about my profile.

Indian/IT/Male (26 years)
Total work-ex: 4.5 years, all in IT (Present exp, will be completing 5.5 years once I start my MBA). My all experience is in offshore ( India location, Mumbai and Pune), since I was working for product company for around 4 years. I was on deputation for 3 months in Bangalore, India for knowledge transfer. Received award for good performance during this KT process.
GMAT: 720 (q-50, v-38) AWA 4.0 . 28-Apr-2012.
Interest: MBA in consultancy. Want to pursue path of management consultant, specially in finance domain.
ECC:
Working as volunteer for my company's social service arm Oureach. Received few certificates for volunteer work ( blood donation etc)
Core member for social service Safosh, which helps in educating and taking care of orphaned children.
Member of National Service Scheme in College for 3 years. received all the 3 ( A, B & C) certificates. Participated in many social service campaign like pulse polio, educating villagers.
Best volunteer award in 2 NSS camps. Captain of NSS cricket team. Guided the team to one of the finals. ( no certificate for this)
Core committee member for National level tech fest in college. Organized 2 event in college.
Core committee member for intra university tech fest in college.
Stood first in several quiz contest in school.

Now, I have some budget constraints for my MBA. Although my parents are in good financial position, I do not want to trouble them for my education. In fact, I want to finance my education using my own means. I have saved ~1 million INR ( 20K USD) for my education. I can go for the loan for the rest of the amount, but I need to keep the capital required for my MBA to as low as possible. With this thing in mind, I have prepared a b-school list for me, which, I believe, have "best value for mba" colleges.
    GSB-University of cape town.
    ISB, Hyderabad, Mohali, INDIA.
    SP Jain GMBA. Singapore, Dubai, Sydney.
    Texas A&M University: Mays
    National University of Singapore
    Nanyang Technical University
    Coppead, Brazil
    Vlerick Leuven Gent Management School
    IIM-C PGPEX
    IIM-I EPGP
Now I need your advice here. From the list above, which school I should target closely. The schools which can help me achieving goals, with the finances and career per se. Please do not hesitate to add any college to this list.
