From my mock tests assuming i get a score between 680-720 and applying in round 2, do you think I have a shot at columbia ,stern,johnson ,anderson or kelley??
DO you think I should try for higher ranked programs or stick on to my choices

i think you should work for at least one more year and apply at the earliest in Fall 2014 to matriculate in 2015. There is also a big difference between a 680 and a 720. Can you repost when you get your score?

Again, I think you would have a better shot at the schools you mention with an additional year of work experience. Dallas, Rady, Owen and Broad are probably stretch programs. You are somewhat more competitive at Krannert, Smeal and G. Washington.

Best,
Linda
