Hi people,

Here are my details:
Age: 28
GMAT: Taking GMAT in Feb. Getting scores of 650 to 680 in Mocks. Could not take GMAT earlier :( I can explain it to adcoms.
GPA: 3.4(66% in Engg)
Work ex: 4 years
Industry: IT(2.5 years Tech support IBM India for N.America+1.5 software testing)
Work achievements: Got 1 Bravo award and top performer in a team of 40 in IBM. Shown initiatives all the time. But limited leadership roles. Got promoted to senior. Now I am in Software testing in another small company.
EC: Worked in IBM Community services and after that working for 'Youth for Seva' in Bangalore.

Please help me to narrow down the list
I am targeting Round 2 and Round 3. Looks like it will be Round 3.
I am interested in Green Energy Consulting. So it will be Cleantech and Sustainability related.
I have shortlisted 14 schools since I have to go this year, 2013. Based on Cleantech states, Energy Clubs, mid level ranking and affordable schools(cheap).
I have selected schools in Cleantech major states, in and around Midwest region: Also a cleantech industry region.
Numbered ones are definitely APPLYING schools.

As an international student targeting fall 2013, I doubt that you may have missed deadlines for most of these colleges. Please check on individual colleges if they encourage international applicants submitting applications in march.

Yes, I have checked their website. But although I will double check when I submit one by one. So you have any other thoughts on reducing the list?
