hi, I am from eastern europe I graduated from UPenn engineering with 3.60 and have a 730 gmat average ECs both at and after college currently wiorking in IB in my home country.. in June I will have exactly two years of full time experience and if I got accepted for the fall 2012 term, I will have a little more than 3 years of WE at matriculation.
this year I applied to 7 schools all in R2 and columbia at Jan 15th - columbia, harvard, stanford ding w/o int - chicago, nyu, yale , wharton ding w / int
anyways I think one of the reasons I got dings was my lack of WE and I started working on the apps very late so was not exactly happy with my essays After MBA I plan on working in PE / or IB so this year I will start very early preparing. and probably planing on using an addmisions consultant at least for several of the schools i plan to apply. I plan on applyng to these schools>
Columbia , Early decision probably will send the app in June and will have the result before R1 of other schools R1: Harvard (reapp), Wharton (reapp), MIT, Tuck, Kellogg, Duke R2: Stanford (reapp), Booth (reapp), Darden, Ross, Yale (reapp), NYU (reapp)
any comments on my school choices as well as any additional school you would recommend applyg? should i apply to 6 schools in one round or should I lower the number schools?

Limit yourself to 5-6 schools total. It looks like you're applying everywhere, which can in a way decrease your chances because you're diluting your efforts across way too many schools (no matter how diligent you may feel you may be). Also, you'll burn out your recommenders (your recommenders are drafting and submitting the letters, right?).
Focus on Booth, Columbia, NYU, Yale. And add one or two more schools - maybe Wharton as your stretch.
