Hey there sarcastic (what a name!),

I'm missing a wee bit of detail to give you the FULL treatment, but basically things look pretty good - you have the good grades from the right school, with the more than right GMAT, and an excellent employer. There's still plenty of stuff I don't yet know about (detail about work, volunteer experience, leadership), and things will depend on that too.

I think top 20 is reasonable for you (like I said from the info I wrote here), although I would definitely urge you to choose one to two "Safe" schools outside the top 20 that fit your needs. I would say that your aim should be the schools that place in finance and/or are in/near NYC. Soooo Columbia, NYU, Johnson, Booth, Haas (they place well in West Coast finance), maybe UNC to start with.

But I should also write that almost all business schools place a lot of people in finance, so if you have any other schools that you really like feel free to run them by me.

I hope this helps you get started off dude,
and if you got aaaaaanythign else, just drop a line,

Hi,

Do you really think I have good grades. (7.56/10). I think this is one of my weak points.

From what I have seen, for India, they are pretty good. They aren't fantastic, but for IIT they are solidly good. (what percentile does this put you in?)
