Thanks for the response Linda.

After MBA the...

...Short Term Goals are:
Work as a mkting consultant and take industry experience in brand advertising and product marketing.

...Long Term Goals are:
Have a consultancy to do creating marketing and to work with Media groups. Give consultation on Ads. Provide platforms to people interested in dance/drama/music or any such creative activity for that matter.

The above may sound a lil absurd but I'd want to experience and take exposure to diff fields before going for a particular one.

Consider UCLA, USC, Tuck, Duke, Michigan, UNC, NYU. These are actually somewhat different kinds of schools, but they may appeal to you for different reasons.

Good luck!
