Thanks for the posting.

First of all, I want to emphasize that you are in a very competitive demographic group meaning that there are many more well qualified candidates than there are allocated seats. This is especially true at the most competitive business schools -- namely most of those that you would be targeting.

As for which schools you should be targeting, I always recommend that Indian candidates apply to between 7 and 8 schools. In your case, I would forgo the top schools such as HBS, Stanford, Wharton, Sloan, Columbia, Tuck, Haas and Booth. Of the remaining schools, I would recommend that you focus on the following: Ross, Johnson, Fuqua, Anderson, Marshall, Stern Kenan Flaglar and Tepper. I would need to know more about your candidacy to know whether to recommend you apply to not apply to such school such as Kellogg, Yale and other top programs.

Good luck.

Dear Kimberly,

This is very helpful. Thank you. Perhaps it would be better if I gained a little more work experience before I started applying to various MBA programs.
