Objective: To pursue mba in operations/supply chain

I shorlisted the following schools
SMU Cox
Indiana Kelley
Purdue
LFM/MIT Sloan
University of Maryland,Smith School of Business
Ross

I know MIT and Ross are in the elite clan but wanted to apply just because they are well known in ops/supply chain domain. Do i have a chance here??
The only concern i have in choosing colleges good in ops/supply chain(other than the elite) is that though they have good curriculum+profs,do they offer good employmeny options.?? Is my worry about employment fare or it is totally uncalled for :?:
Any help in alleviating my concerns will be greatly appreciated

Thank You!

vinayn,

My apologies for the late reply. I don't think Ross and MIT are realistic given your numbers (which are low) and profile (which is from a very common demographic). I don't think your concerns are employability with an MBA from non-elite schools is unfounded. It *is* an issue, especially for international applicants. You will have the fact of the current U.S. recession to deal with on top of your immigration issues. So you need to vet each school's placement records carefully and hopefully have a plan (a network) of your own for securing employment. Don't assume your school will be of great help.

Given your GMAT score, I think you have a chance at Maryland and SMU Cox but Indiana and Purdue will be "semi-long shots."

Hope this helps,
