After a good couple of years the business is sort of stagnating and we are planning to shut it down within a year. (My official title is Managing Director, which I of course gave myself
I plan to get into management consulting after completing my MBA. In the long term I hope to get back into entrepreneurship, but with some more solid experience.Extracurriculars
During college: Quite strong. I was a member of several clubs, including some major leadership positions. I also founded a club myself. And I also was a member of a fraternity - not sure if that matters. Target Schools
Although I would like to get into the best school I can, I would strongly prefer programs that are more collaborative rather than competitive. I also plan to focus on general management. Schools I would like to target include:
I am honestly a bit unsure of which schools I can consider as my "target" schools and which would be "stretch" schools for me. I understand that H/S/W are usually stretch schools or "long shots" for everyone. But after that tier, would places like Kellogg and Tuck be closer to "stretch" schools for me or "targets"? And which schools could I consider as safeties?
Thank you in advance for your help and advice.
