Hi,

Thank you for the response. As far as career goals, they are to work for one of the top management consulting firms and then branch out into entrepreneurial ventures. That is where my true passion lies but I am interested in gaining the learning available in management consulting. In addition, I am passionate about using the MBA and management skills to be a leader in charitable organizations.

I am currently trying to narrow down a list of four schools to two. The four are Stanford, Wharton, Berkeley and Tuck. I feel like I would be ecstatic to attend any of these schools but want to make sure I am choosing schools that meet my interests and goals as well as having a realistic shot to get in. Any insight you could give on this would be very greatly appreciated.

Maybe add Columbia to your list. Sloan could be a good option too, as both schools are stronger in entrepreneurship. One thing I would say though, don't be soooo vague as to say "after consulting I want to be an entrepreneur". It makes it sound like you don't know what you want: an entrepreneur in WHAT? HOW??? Based on what knowledge and experience? in what industry??? If you can get more concrete and specific it'll help you out greatly.
