Hi Linda,

I saw that you have suggested to this profile Duke, Cornell, Indiana, and Carlson. Out of these three which ones will you consider stretch, competitive, and safe and why?

Thanks, Just4fun

Duke -- Stretch
Cornell and Carlson -- Competitive
Indiana -- Safety

I base those descriptions on his GMAT in comparison to the average GMAT of the schools, his lack of post-college extra-curriculars, and the intense competition among Indian applicants in IT.

Good luck!
