I want to focus on improving the advancement of education, through content and technology. Work for a couple of established companies (either an edtech company or an entertainment company in a kids/educational division) for a few years, then start my own company.
My present plan (applying all Round 2) is to apply to Ross, Stern, Anderson, and Haas--looking for another school or two to consider. I am hoping for significant scholarship aid, given my earlier law school debt. Am I aiming too high? Any comments about my chances at these schools, as well as any other school suggestions, would be helpful.
