Hi

I would appreciate your evaluation of my profile
Female, 26
GMAT - 740,
Punjabi Sikh, Indian
WE - been working for more than 4 yr exp as Consultant in Risk Advisory in a Big 4 (Telecom and Technology industries)
Completed all qualification exams of Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (Still to apply for Associate Chartered Mgmt Accountant membership)
Undergraduation - Management, 3.8 GPA converted (also completed an Honours Programme)
Extra-Curriculars - Involved with development of students in a rural school for the last couple of years. Involved in school for differently abled children in college. Also used to tutor student in college.
learning dancing for the last 6 months (not very good, this was for fun). Also, learning French.
I am into individual sports (I think I should avoid mentioning these since they may give the wrong impression) - Swimming, Running, Learnt horse riding about four years ago and sailing as a child.
Languages - 5 (English, Hindi, Punjabi, Sanskrit (Basic), french (Level A1)

I have extensive Leadershipship experience as team lead for engagements, more than two years (but I don't know how to put in figures, its risk advisory so figures arent really important). I have lead teams consisting of people who are as senior or more senior than me because of my technical skills and experience in handling teams. The team consist of different people in every project and every project lasts about 3 months. Also, I have worked for a lot of clients with very different cultures.

I have extensive knowledge of US, UK, and Indian Labor Laws, UK Anti-Bribery and Corruption Act and Indian Laws, Acts as well as compliances for Technology and Telecom companies

I have worked with International teams on projects for Global countries in India, but I have not worked abroad yet.

I would like to move Strategic Consulting in a similar industry.

I am considering the foll:
Stanford
Insead
Tuck
Kelloggs
MIT Sloan
NYU Stern
ISB
(and may be Cranfield and Yale)
over the next three months
Are there any other college I should be considering instead?

Thanks

The big issue with risk advisory is that it makes its practitioners appear risk averse - which is the antithesis of what the top MBA programs are seeking. Thus, while your stats are in the right zone, you need to better highlight the portions of your profile that demonstrate your ability to take risks, lead new initiatives, and make an impact.
While I don't believe your application to Stanford has a high likelihood of success because of an absence of leadership and impact and I also don't see INSEAD as a possibility since you have no international experience, I do feel you may be able to succeed with Tuck, Kellogg, NYU, ISB, and possibly MIT.
