am planning to attend b-school on fall 2007. I don't know if my application is competitive enough to get into the business school I want?

GMAT: to be taken on August 2006

Employment History:
My supervisor said that I was the first person he had ever seen who turned away from money and stuck with my promise. My supervisor and the CEO of the company have commended me for my excellent and unbelievable job performance.

Here are some of my responsibilities:

Finance- Assistant- August 2004-Nov. 2004
Assistant Finance Officer- Dec. 2004- present
-Directly responsible for the management of bank accounts of all Intermediate Care Facility-Mental Retardation (ICF-MR) clients of the company.

I believe that we can make a successful company by pulling our talents and knowledge together.

Reasons for choosing a school:
1. Affordability- My family is poor and I have responsibility to my family though I am the youngest. I am looking for a business whose fees I can afford to pay.
2. Competitiveness-

lan583,

Sorry for the late reply. I've been traveling and Internet access has been touch and go. First off, your GMAT score will determine to a large degree which schools you should consider competitive, longshotsm, and "safeties." Your cultural background (Filipino) and your healthcare career history will help you stand out, which benefits you. I think it will be important for you to explain the connections if any between your career thus far and your post-MBA goals. Also, you will need to accentuate your leadership experiences; it's unclear from your post whether you manage people or not. But assuming a GMAT in the high 600s, goals in entrepreneurship, and a need for the lower tuition of public schools, I would offer the following schools: UNC and South Carolina (I agree with your choices here), Indiana U., U. of Arizona, U. of Colorado-Boulder, and U. of Maryland. Longshots would include Texas and Michigan.

Good luck,
