Hi Mehul,

You are very much clear on your post MBA career goals and the target schools so this will give you confidence to get started with the application, your profile is decent with good GMAT and extracurricular activities. Your shortlist of schools looks fine and still you can add few more schools like Ross, Tuck and Emory. so focus on your essays and start working, ideally you should consider 6-7 b-schools for better chances. You can also try Chances of b-school tool to know more about your chances for shortlisted b-schools visit
