hi
Kindly look into my profile and suggest colleges where I have a realistic chance

Graduation
Btech: CGPA 7/10
National Institute of Technology Kurukshetra (NITs are only after IITs in reputation)

GMAT 700 awa 4 :(

Work ex :2.5 years as on date
I run my own ayurvedic pharma firm.We grow and plants with medicinal value and process them into ayurvedic medicines and market all across india.
I have 30 full time employees under me
our sales are over 20 Lacs per annum
we handle a land bank of 10 acres
this is not our family business but I started this firm after graduating from college(Most of the land is leased from small farmers)


my objective is to grow my firm to an export oriented company selling alternative medicines and natural beauty products in USA and Europe. I am looking for an mba program with emphasis on Entrepreneurship and which has a strong brand name and provides good networking opportunities which would help me get funds for expanding this business

Kindly suggest schools I can apply to
I was thinking about DUKE, UCLA, ROSS. Are these schools right for me kindly suggest more schools where I have a realistic chance

You have a nice profile, and a nice company with proven success. This plus your GMAT is strong enough to get you in almost anywhere. Really. Now this doesn't mean you are gonna get in everywhere. I think the single most important thing is that you apply to LOTS of programs. I'm serious you have good chances. But coming from India always makes things a whole lot harder (sorry! :))

I would suggest also: Columbia, MIT, Haas, Wharton.

Don't sell yourself short! You have already succeeded in step one! You have your business. It's in the bucket. Now get the schools to fight over the person who is gonna start the next Merck! (albeit an Indian, ayuverdic one ;) )

Cheerio!

Sure it means two things:

1. Schools try to balance out their classes in terms of industry, country of origin, gender, etc. diversity is important. Given the very large amount of Indian applicants, and the plethora of choice the schools have, it tends to make the application harder than say if you were coming from Mexico, or Russia, from where relatively few candidates apply.

2. Indian applicants tend to have AWESOME GMATS, higher than the mean. Which means, you should have a bit higher than others.

Hope this clarifies things.
