Could you pls give me an idea as to which schools could i consider "safe" or competitive or stretch with this profile and a 720 on the gmat?? I am very keen to pursue an mba in technology management or human resource development.
I'm looking to apply to b schools in the USA; not immediately but for fall 2014 admissions. I have not jotted down the schools that i'd be applying to yet.. wanted to get an opinion on which schools this profile coupled with a 720 on the gmat ( got my AWA scores today - 6) should be targeting..
I aim to enter the field of energy consulting (renewable energy, oil and gas) after procuring an mba (in technology management, strategy, operations management or human resource development).
You have a strong recommendation. Your numbers indicate that you have the intellect and focus to thrive in a top tier MBA program. Nothing about your story makes me think there is any reason why you cannot be admitted, but nothing stands out telling me why you should be admitted. All of the reasons why a top program would admit you are in the details of your work experience, personal experiences, personality, values and overall story.
Right now, I really recommend you focus on exactly what you are looking for in an MBA program. As an example, NYU Stern would provide a very different experience than, for example, UC Berkeley Haas. If you are interested in technology programs, I recommend you look at programs in California. These will provide you with the best networks given their proximity to this industry.
