What I suggest is to swap out HBS and Wharton for Cornell and Yale - it'll give you a better shot at getting into more schools. With your profile, I think that HBS and Wharton are long shots; nothing wrong with you, it's just that you're up against way too many applicants with profiles that the adcoms prefer (blue chip bankers, consultants, etc.). Wharton *might* give you a look (i.e. an interview) as they do like high GMAT scores but again your odds are long.

Other than that, I think CBS and MIT are stretches but where you have enough of a chance that it's worth at least giving them a shot. Schools like NYU, UCLA, Cornell and Yale are sweet spots, where you'll have a more reasonable shot of getting into. Schools outside the top 16 (Tepper, Texas, UNC, USC, Georgetown, etc.) are safeties.

I agree HBS is long shot. It might sound funny to you, if you think I belong to the Chinese pool, Yale,MIT are harder than Wharton. According to last a few years's stats from Chinese pool, Wharton takes about 40 Chinese. Among them, Wharton chooses about 30 females with average GMAT 750. It's not because Wharton is easy, but because it seems that it has a preference for high GMAT females from China. This rule applies to BOOTH too. But as to Yale, MIT, they take about 5. And most of time, people who get into Wharton get rejected by Yale, MIT. NYU takes about 8 every year and normally 6 or 7 of them are male with high GMAT. CBS, HBS takes about 25-30 every year and they don't care GMAT, gender as much.

Hi Alex,

After the application is done. I would like to let know my application results.

You were quite right about my background. I didn't get interview invite from HBS, Wharton, CBS, MIT in the first round.

In the second round, I was lucky enough to get into Booth, Kellogg (50k fellowship), NYU(full scholarship) and UCLA(70k fellowship)

I appreciated your evaluation.

My post-MBA goal is to work in investment management. So Booth is the best fit for me. It's a pity that I gave up so much money. My friend even asked me if I just have a problem with money. :(

Your friend is a clever guy. :) But given your goals, I think you can be pretty sure you made the right choice. And when your signing bonus takes a huge chunk out of that potential 50K you could have saved, you'll begin to realize it was worth it.

Congrats! and good luck.
