Rajesh,

Unless you have some extraordinary material you didn't mention, I think you may be reaching a bit high with Harvard and Columbia, slightly less so for Kellogg and Wharton. Don't get me wrong; you have an excellent profile, I just don't see the *distinctiveness* -- that extra HBS something. So given your goals I would make Kellogg and/or Wharton your longshots (because they have high placements in consulting) and consider some of the following schools: MIT, Tuck, Michigan, Darden, and Fuqua.

Good luck,

Hi,
First thanks a lot for your comments. I did not mention my extracurricular as such.

I work for a charity a organization called Mukta Foundation. I teach Maths to deprived kids there. I collect donation from my office colleagues and try to help this childrens.

In my engineering college days i took the initiative for the formation a technology club with primary focus on embedded technologies. The knowledge gained there helped to get my present job at Intel.

In my younger days i was long distance marathon runner. I won bronze medal in inter school tournament. Now i am an active swimmer. Other then this I play Cricket. Actively participate on annual sports arranged by Intel.

I have been consistently rated above average by my manager since last 4 years in annual appraisal here in Intel. I suggested a new idea in my field of work and now the company is in the process of filing a patent for it in US patent office.

I am active am follower of capital markets I have lot of interest in economics and political science. Since this does not form part of my work I consider this more of an hobby or self interest. I read magazines and economic times newspaper to understand this topics.

I guess I am not very good at describing myself. Above is some background of the activities I do or did. I profile details are there in my previous mail. It will be nice if you evaluate my chances at the

Harvard, INSEAD, Wharton, MIT, Darden, Duke, Michigan, Georgetown.

Thanks

Rajesh,

The additional info you provided shows that you are, as I mentioned, a strong candidate, but it did not convince me that you are a sufficiently "unusual" candidate to make me optimistic about your chances at HBS, Wharton, or Insead. By all means apply to Wharton and/or Insead as longshots and prove me wrong. Your chances at MIT look decent to me--not in the bag, but competitive. I rate your chances at Darden, Duke, Michigan, and Georgetown as good.

Good luck to you,

prashantagoswami,

European schools that place large percentages of graduates in consulting include:

IESE: 35%
RSM: 32
SDA Bocconi: 28

Cranfield places 22% in consulting. Compare that with LBS (40%), INSEAD (37%), IMD (21%), and ESADE (20%).

Good luck,

By comparison,

24% (Consulting as Industry Sector)

Scholarships and financial aid are not my expertise area. Sorry I can't help you more.
