Hi,

Since I haven't got any replies of this topic elsewhere, I am posting this here.

About me:
25/Male/Indian

Educational Info:
GMAT:690 (Q:49 V:35)
Undergrad GPA: 3.72 (3rd ranked in Freshman year out of 600 students; Department Rank 15th at graduation)
12th: 85%
10th: 81.6%

Work Experience:

I am working as Assistant systems Engineer in a leading Indian IT company and will have an experience of 4 years by the time I join B-school. I am currently leading a team of 3 people in a Financial domain project (Lloyds Bank). My experience includes an international exposure of almost 1.5 years in UK, working for Lloyds again. Although my profile is very common, I have done executed some critical IT projects for the bank at onsite as Live Project Implementation manager, benefitting millions of customers and leading to over $100 million in profits for the Bank. I am hoping to leverage this aspect of my profile. Do you think it will help??
EC:

College:-
Led college team to many inter-college cricket tournaments, Organized a Technical Competition in Inter-College Fest, secretary of Literary and Debating club in college, judged many singing competitions as a member of Music and Fine Arts club, organized blood donation camps and volunteered for Earth Conservation March.

Post College:-
Organize adventure trips for project team members, a district-level tennis player, captained winning team in Lloyds Football Championship at onsite, member of Lloyds Smile Group etc.

Schools List:-

Belonging to a Family of Chartered Accountants and considering my professional background in Financial domain projects , I am looking to pursue MBA in Finance / Operations(Banking) and hope to become a Project manager in Global Financial Services Firms such as Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan Chase etc. In the long term, I would like to become a CEO of my own Financial investment firm in India and gradually spread my business globally.

I have selected the following list of colleges to apply:-

University of Notre Dame ( Mendoza)
Minnesota Twin Cities (Carlson)
University of Maryland (Smith)
Texas A&M University (Mays)
Georgia Institute of Technology
University of Texas Austin (McCombs)
University of North Carolina--Chapel Hill (Kenan-Flagler)
University of Washington (Foster)
Boston University
University of Florida (Hough)

Can you please tell me that out of these which all colleges will be in my reach and which ones will be tough to get in? I will be shooting for the best 6 colleges from this list.

Thanks.

You probably have a decent shot at any of the schools you listed. Choose six that you'd love to go to, rather than go with someone else's "best" to do the deciding for you.
