Thanks for the posting.

On most fronts, you are a very strong candidate and I would consider you a competitive candidate at most. Realize that HBS 2+2 is very competitive and the acceptance rates are very low -- so even though you have done a lot and have a lot of what the school is looking for -- you have to make sure that your application really reflects your best work and is up to HBS standards. You should also consider applying to some of the other early entry programs like Stanford and Yale.

As for most of the other schools on your list, with a strong application, you would be a competitive candidate. However, the range of schools you are targeting is so wide and so different that I really recommend that you figure out what you want to get from a graduate program and then re-evalatue some of the schools on your list. Also, there is a huge difference between the philosophies of American and European programs so you have to see which type is right for you.

Good luck.

Hi.. sorry for the late reply..Thanks a lot for the advice. :) I want to be an entrepreneur in future but for now I want to learn all the aspects of management (that's why MIM).
Can you please mention some of the important differences between philosophies of American and European programs? Another question- can u please present some placement stats for international students, especially of LBS MIM and HEC Paris MIM as I want to be on a safe side after investing huge amounts of money.

The biggest difference between most American and European schools is the duration of the program - two years versus one year. You have to determine which length is the right one for you. Both schools tend to be very global, cover the same materials, have bright and motivated students, etc.

If you call our office, we can provide you with all admissions stats in a couple of days. We are finishing up our stats for this year as most schools have now completed their admissions for this year. I know that for HBS and Stanford, we had acceptance rates of 45% and 40% respectively. Our acceptance rates to less competitive programs will be much higher.

Looking forward to speaking with you.
