Hey there


I'm looking for some help.

Here's my profile

26, from Pakistan, went to the top university/business School in Pakistan, gpa 2.5. 3 years of work experience with well known organizations. gmat 680. Not a lot of money.
I just wanted to know which schools in the US should i be realistically targeting? I don't know how to go about it.

Any help would be welcome. Also, which ranking is the best (ft, economist, qs?)

Thanks,
Yahya

Hey yahyaazeem,

Thanks for reaching out to me.

Before I can evaluate what schools you should target, I really need to know about your goals. For example – what are they? Another point - your current work and extracurricular experiences - what are they?

It's really critical that you demonstrate not only a better awareness, but also a better understanding of your goals. I always like to say that an MBA is a bridge to your future goals - so what are your short and longer term goals? Remember that your current experiences need to (in some way) support these goals (along with an MBA.) I would encourage you to start thinking about how your current experiences can support a future career. Then you would probably be able to answer your own question about "what schools?"

Anyway - focus on your fit my man. From what I know right now, you need to start with the basics because I don't have any more info than you are providing me. Just recognize the most underrated aspect of the admissions process .... is demonstrating fit.

Respectfully,
Paul Lanzillotti
