Not sure what you want me to say? What schools are you looking at? What jobs are you looking for after b-school and where?

I need some guidance on which schools to apply. My goal is to raise funds post mba and buy a company to run and exit out after 4-5 ears of operation. I am currently working in a "serach fund" and wants to do the same post Mba. I hope this helps.

Honestly with your GMAT as it is, you'll be a long shot for any of the top 16 + INSEAD/LBS. Even the top 30 schools may be a stretch as their GMAT scores are in the high 600s already.

If you want any shot at a top 16 school like NYU, Cornell, Yale, Booth, Columbia, etc. then you will need at least a 700, and ideally a 720+.

Do whatever it takes to boost that score. Retake the GMAT.
