Stern, INSEAD, and ISB are stretch programs. You have competitive stats for the other MBA programs on your list. Make sure the firms you want to work for recruit at the school you attend. Also, Bain looks at the IR closely. Please see http://www.businessweek.com/articles/20 ... -mba-hires .

Best,
Linda

Thanks ! That's great information. I closely look at employment statistics and the sort to use that in my essay. And the Bain information is gold :-D I scored an 8 on 8 on the IR.

The one information that I've seen people using regularly and am not able to incorporate in the essay are about the professors and what that would add on for me through the course
