Hi Experts,

I would like to know my chances in Ross, Kelly, UTA McCombs, Darden and Tepper based on profile provided below. Also it would be helpful if you could suggest any other schools for which i have a realistic chance.

My Profile:

GMAT: 710 (Q 49/V 39)

GPA: 8.1/10

Work Experience:
Have been working for the past 26 months as a Business Analyst in one of the world's largest pure play decision sciences and analytics firm (By the time i start my MBA, i would have completed 3 years of work) I work with a world leading retailer to institutionalize data-driven decision making in their organization. I do this by the helping them harness the power of big data and analytics & decision sciences in their operational and strategic decisions.
Some of the work done includes Forecasting and driver analysis: Forecasting at various levels to support strategic, tactical and operational strategies of client; driver analysis to understand actionable levers etc
Cannibalization, new store location analysis, Market Basket Analysis, affinity analysis, event modeling, survey analysis etc. are some of the other significant projects for the retailer.

I would like to specialize in strategic consulting in retail sector to scale new heights. It is also in line with what i have been doing till now.

Any thoughts would be really appreciated.

Thanks!

Hey ganeshvarun - not to punt on your question but, you're qualified for any of these schools. However, it really depends on how you put the pieces together.

Any school in the Top 30 might be open to you based on the bare facts that you have stated. That doesn't mean you'll get in, it just means that, again, you're qualified. Yeah, we know, not helpful, right? Choosing schools is a very personal thing on your part, and in order for us to suggest any school that could actually be a fit, we'd need to know a lot more about you (we do this through our (paid, but cheap!) Comprehensive Profile Review service but we know how lame it is to do the upsell in a forum response so please understand that this reference is not to get you to buy it, it's just meant to say that we do, in fact, offer school suggestions to people, we simply can't do much with such limited info provided here). All the schools send people to strategy consulting so that doesn't actually narrow the field at all. You need to be looking at your own criteria like what type of school in what geography etc. We have a whole section on the EssaySnark blahg about selecting schools because it is in fact important, and quite involved. You could start there and see if that can guide you.

Also, you might want to read what we just said to this other guy and feel free to come back at us again.
