Consider Cornell, Georgetown, UNC, NYU, UT, Duke and UCLA. If you can show leadership or spend some time on an non-work activity, it would strengthen your application.

Best,
Linda

Thanks for the feedback Linda. I do have some volunteer experience, tax preparation and academic tutoring for low-income Asian families in my community. Among the schools you mentioned, which ones would you consider as my reach schools, target schools and back-up schools? Thanks again, and I really appreciate your help.

Cornell, Georgetown, UNC, NYU, UT, Duke and UCLA

I would say the reach schools are NYU, Duke and UCLA. The competitive schools are Cornell, Georgetown, and UNC. I might be being somewhat conservative here because while your academic stats are very competitive at even the stretch schools, I didn't sense much leadership in your post and initially there were no extra-curricular activities. Again, if you can boost the leadership (or if you have it and I just don't see it in your brief post), you would be much more competitive at all the programs.

You might be interested in a webinar we are having in a few weeks. We haven't even started publicizing it yet. "The Smart Timeline for 2013 MBA Applicants" will be held on March 14 at 10 AM PT/1 PM ET. It's free, and it will cover a suggested timeline to prepare for a round 1 2013 application.

Best,
Linda

Thanks for the feedback, and I will surely attend the webinar! About "back-up/safety" schools, which would you recommend given my background and post-MBA career goal?

For you, Georgetown, UNC, and UT would probably be your back-up schools.

Thanks for joining us at the webinar!

Best,
Linda
