GMAT: I haven’t passed the exam yet, but am hoping to score in the high 600’s or low 700’s.
I would be very grateful if you could briefly inform me if I stand any chances at being admitted to a top US MBA program and what my weaknesses are. I don’t have high hopes for HBS, Stanford and the likes, but would like to give it a shot at Tuck, Ross and Sloan.
I think that with a 690+ that you are a good candidate for a US Top 20 program. There are a lot of foreign applicants to US Top 10 schools with relatively few places, so you will need to stand out with your GMAT, Essays (with well defined motivation for MBA and details into your personality), and Letters of Recommendation. Apply early, if possible, and give your recommenders lots of time and good material (statement of purpose, etc) to answer the questions. Also, I don't believe anyone who wants to go to B-School should apply to just Top 10 schools; if you do score 690-700 on the GMAT, you might throw in a Top 20-30 school in order to improve your odds of acceptance. Depending on what you want to do, a degree from a school like USC or William and Mary can still open a lot of doors.
These are just my opinions - I think you'll find in your research that no one really knows what will tip the scales in your favor, but a good GMAT along with great essays will make you competitive.
