Hi Kmod,

You have a nice profile there. What I particularly like is your work progression. You seem to be handling two critical projects and large team within them. Quite impressive for somebody with only 3 years of work experience. Your extra curricular involvement with the NGO is also quite interesting and it gives you a chance to demonstrate leadership outside the work place.

Your career goals will need more vetting. It may not be feasible to start your consulting company soon out of B-school (which is what the short term career goals are - from 0-3 years after MBA) as you would have a debt burden (unless you get a full ride scholarship to b-school or have a rich dad who takes the bill). You need to research and understand this better.

Consider applying to Duke, Booth, Ross, Darden, Tepper and Cornell.
