Honestly, if you are not applying until you get two years of work experience, it's too early to be worried about schools. You need to see how you do out there, what kind of transferable skills you develop, how your career goals take shape, and everything else that is part of evolving from a college student to a professional. I'm not trying to duck your question, but I honestly wouldn't even know where to begin projecting out that far. Obviously you can rule out some schools that prize deep, lengthy work experience (like Kellogg, Haas, and maybe Duke), but other than that, the world's your oyster right now. Just go live and gather experiences and when you get closer to the target, then assess the play. We live in a microwave world, no doubt, but some things are still better cooked in an oven.

Hope that helps somewhat.
