Dear Suresh,
The basics of your profile are good - you have a good GMAT, a solid career, some good community service and some good extra curriculars. I think that if you can come up with passionate essays and find your unique voice when you write your applications, your "Sweet spot" will be in schools ranked from 15-40 about. So I would start looking at those schools and make myself a short list based upon location/opportunities/career options/fit and goals. Once you have that down, then you can do further research (I can help if you need) into the schools to whittle down your list to about 6-7 schools to apply to, which would give you a good chance of getting at least an accept or two.

Best of luck!

Hi Jon,

Thank you for your evaluation. 15-40 is wide range, where do you think I can really target? So for example is getting into top 20 college possible or only 30+ ranked colleges are practically possible? I want to go to a good college that is recognized also.

I have noted other things you have adviced.

Thanking you,
Suresh

Hey there,
Actually 15-40 is not that wide a range. The first 15-20 schools are generally considered Tier one, and I think that most of them will be quite a challenge for what I see here. Schools ranked about 20-50 are considered Tier 2.And so you don't think these are not amazing programs, they are! They may not be HBS but people still graduate them and go into fancy consulting and finance jobs where they make 100k+ per year. (Again this isn't rocket science, only an approximation), and actually once you get into Tier two the difference between ranked 31 and 35 is minimal. And anyhow this is only your first "cut" in the school list. To thin the list further down, you need to do research yourself about which schools fits you best in terms of fit, and location, and methodology, and class-size and recruiters, and employment statistics.
