Hello!

I want to choose B-school to apply this fall and have a hard time during this process

My brief profile:
Male, 29 years, Russian resident
PhD in Finance (defended thesis in Russian University)
Graduated from the same University with all the top marks (5.0/5.0)

Working experience - more than 8 years. Have been occupied in the banking all the time, specializing in fixed income trading. At the moment - head of fixed income trading desk in Russian subsidiary of big multinational bank.

Social life - for a long time (more than 10 years) have been involved in the activity of the public organization, that creates and organises different kinds of intellectual games as a leisure. This fund is actually multinational, but involves mainly ex-Russians in countries like USA, Germany, Israel etc. Have been awarded by the governor of the region for the achivements in the public life.

TOEFL - 273
GMAT > 700 (I`m almost sure it will be like that :) )

Recommendations:
1. From my boss - US citizen, MBA (non top)
2. From one of my counterparties from global banks
3. From the head of the public fund mentioned above

My general intention - to stay within the field of Finance. But I dont mind to make it broader, gaining some extra skills.

For sure, I tend to enroll in some of TOP schools.

So, how do you find my chances to be accepted to one of the "elite" B-schools? And to which particular schools would you recommend me to apply?

You advices are greatly appreciated!
Thanks in advance

Consider Wharton, Columbia, NYU, MIT, Tuck, Chicago, and Kellogg.

Good luck!
