Thank you for posting.

You certainly have an impressive background and one that all top business schools will take seriously. There are still a few unknowns or incompletes in your application -- namely being your GMAT and your application. As every candidate to the schools you are targeting is highly accomplished and motivated, you are going to have to make sure that your scores and applications are excellent. A score of 720 will definitely keep you competitive. As for your application, you must invest the time, energy and resources to make sure your application is top notch and truly reflects your motivations, goals and ideas.

As for the schools you are considering, Stanford and Sloan are more selective that Ross and Tepper. I would also encourage you to consider a few other schools -- namely Wharton and Kellogg as they have strong placement in operations.

Good luck.

Hi Kimberly,

Thanks alot for your reply. Ok, I will add Wharton and Kellogg to my list as well. I do not think I can catch R1, I would have to apply in R2...Do you think this might affect my chances??

Thanks,
Sam

Try to get as many applications in R1 as possible; R2 is acceptable too. Just do not wait until R3 unless you have to.
