I'm looking to get into customer loyalty and analytics. So far my heart is set on UW but I need to expand my search in case I don't make into their program. I'm also looking at UI Urbana-Champaign, UT-Austin. I have decent experience and I've moved up a few times in my field (one "lateral" promotion and two actual promotions in less than two years) Would really appreciate suggestions on other schools that would fit my profile.
Thanks so much for your help!

Going to be hitting the books again. Decided that I'd like a 700+ score. Not looking forward to spending the next few months studying, though!
