Current Role - Operations, Technical Issues resolution, Troubleshooting. In line to get promoted as team lead. Target Schools - ISB, Booth, Kellogg, Duke, Rotman Career Goals - Consulting , General Management
You certainly have strengths in your candidacy, but I’d still consider Booth and Kellogg to be extremely high reaches. Duke would likely be a reasonable reach. Rotman would be on-par to reasonable reach range.
Work experience is strong in terms of progression, and your academic track record also. However, given your demographic, I believe you’d need a higher GMAT and more business-focused experience to be competitive at Kellogg and Booth. Also, your goals seem very broad.
For MBA applications, I suggest highlighting your excellent work track record and impacts therefrom, along with any business interface, and making a strong case for your goals. _________________
Sure! Some schools I'd suggest taking a close look at would be Michigan's Ross, CMU's Tepper, Cornell, and Georgetown -- there's a range of competitiveness in there, but all I believe with excellent resources for your consulting and management goals. _________________

Hi Cindy, I did some self research and now am thinking to completely drop Booth, Kellogg and even Duke from my list..... Seems unrealistic to me too. Actually I was expecting 720 in GMAT, so had selected all these schools (Booth etc).
But, now I think that its wise to let go of $28 (Score reporting fee) rather than wasting $250 (as app fee). Grapes seem to be really sour....
Don't be disheartened! You wouldn't believe the utterly impressive, interesting, ambitious, and simply awesome people I've worked with who have attended Ross, Tepper, Cornell, GT... Good luck! _________________
