Hello,

I am looking for advice and do believe that you are exceptional at that.

Education

Top 75 US School (USNews Overall ranking) : Masters in Computer Science GPA 3.9
Bachelors in India : First class with Distinction (non-IIT) (73%)

GMAT : 720

Age : 28

Work Experience : Total 4 Years

Current Job: Working as a Senior Analyst in Analytics in a Fortune 500 dotcom. Identify new opportunities using data and understanding user behavior better. Provide insights to make the end product better for the user and the business. Did make an impact for mobile users for which I received a kudos from the company President. Might also be able to get his recommendation.

3 years at a start up in USA, partnering with big companies. I have grown along with the company in responsibility and position/role. I worked in reporting and analytics. Solely responsible for everything related to data, data loading, validation, performance and business insights. Second job at same startup company--I voluntarily took the responsibility. After my 40 hours , I work on special projects where I take the lead in finding ways of increasing revenue in the smaller areas of the business. I have done 2 projects and was successful in improving the gross income.


Why MBA and Post MBA plans: To expand my vision and understanding of all the moving parts of a business. To get different lens to view the business and also the opportunity to learn from fellow students from different backgrounds.

Wish List of Schools
1) Booth
2) Wharton
3) Kellogg
4) Stern
5) Duke
6) Columbia

Could you tell me if I am aiming too high and which fall within my reach ?

Thanks for your time, I appreciate your help

They are all within reach, but you didn't mention extra-curricular activities or other interests. Schools will want to see multi-dimensionality and not just an impressive workaholic. Also for the schools that ask about goals, yours basically says you don't know what you want to do after your MBA. That's a weakness you can fix. Please see http://www.accepted.com/mba/goalsessay.aspx .

Best,
Linda
