Expert's post
If you craft your application well, you definitely have a shot. Take a look through some of the profiles threads and see generally who's getting in where. Obviously, it's difficult to base on just GMAT/GPA/WE alone, but people with similar stats have cracked the top 10 and definitely the top 15.

My (peer) advice to you is to know your career goals, find what schools are the right fit for you (both professionally and personally), and write applications that showcase your reasonings for applying to each specific school. Best of luck!

Hi,

Selections in most of the b-schools depend on how well you position yourself in application essays and show leadership skills during final interviews. You always have fair chances of being admitted, by skillfully writing application essays and demonstrating professional achievements. You can try your chances in b-schools by clicking http://www.general-ed.com/chances-of-bschool . To know more about interview preparations and tips, click http://bit.ly/XQVp4s

Feel free to post any other concerns you might have.

Best,
AK
