Mohighmin,

I'm answering for Linda. Your credentials look strong, however, you need to work on your goals a bit more. Schools may wonder why you need an MBA to do IT consulting. You would seem to have the educational qualifications to do it now.

As to where to apply, of the schools you listed, I would rank them in the following order for technology:

UB- Haas
Texas-McCombs
Univ of Maryland
Michigan- Ross
UCLA- Anderson
Indiana-Kelly
Michigan State- Broad
Penn State- Smeal
Ohio State- Fisher
Rice

Given your IT focus, I recommend that you consider the following state schools:

UNC
Purdue U
UC Irvine

Applying to 8 or 9 schools is good: 2 "stretches," 2-3 (or more) schools where you're competitive, and 2 safeties. Apply to more if you want to reduce your risk and you have the resources.

Good luck!
