Please Suggest. Thanks a lot in Advance.! Greatly appreciated.
Given the schools you are aiming for, I recommend you retake your GMAT and aim for the highest score you can get. Somethng >650 should improve the outcome. You may also be interested in an application review so if you made mistakes you won't make them again. http://www.accepted.com/services/mba/ap ... eview.aspx
