Wish List of Schools
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.
