Thanks for reaching out to me.
So let me get this straight – you into IIT, you're on a GMAT forum, and you just listed your stats. Then you tell me –"I have no idea where my profile fits." Come on man. If you do not know, you should know!
[Goals MIA?] Alas, there is a simple reason is that I cannot tell you what school is right for you. Why? Because I have no idea what you want to be when you grow up. Do you want to be a fireman or do you want to be a policeman? Do want to be strategy consultant within technology? Do you want to move into business development?
My point is that you and I have a fairly good understanding of your background, but I certainly know nothing about your goals. An MBA is not necessarily a one-size-fits-all degree. You have to pick and choose the school that is right for you. I would you a particular program as a conduit or bridge to your short and long-term goals. Some bridges will be better than others. Some of the bridges that are better, will not let you pass. Other bridges that may not be as appropriate, may not be the ones you want to take even if they accept you at the toll booth. Finally, there are bridges that have trolls living underneath them. Those bridges are scary and they're usually nonaccredited.
This is what I can tell you – go look at the career center reports for each school. Look to see what are the feeder industries that's cool – both into and out of the program. Also consider where it is that you want to live after graduation. There may be some so-so schools that are located in great areas for your desired industry.
