Hi ankcraz,

You have a strong application, and its great that you have pursued initiatives that relate to your short and long term goals. The business schools you have listed also have great entrepreneurial programs.

For your application, remember that an admissions team will focus on your work experience. They are looking to cultivate future leaders, so any leadership experience you can point to will be important. It will be very important that you look to differentiate your application from a competitive pool. One Indian engineer did this and was accepted into MIT, Columbia, and Tuck: http://www.stacyblackman.com/comprehens ... ies/case2/

Here is some school specific advice for the programs you are considering:

MIT Sloan: http://www.stacyblackman.com/business-s ... mit-sloan/
Kellogg: http://www.stacyblackman.com/business-s ... n-kellogg/
Booth: http://www.stacyblackman.com/business-s ... ago-booth/

Cheers,

Conrad and the Stacy Blackman Team
