Expert's post

I think your list of schools is on target in the sense that it contains some reasonable reaches (e.g., Kellogg, Stern) and an on-par (Kelley). I’d consider Ross, UCLA, and McCombs to be on the border of reasonable reach and on-par. Although you’re in the over-represented Indian demographic, your work experience is distinctive (both the previous and the current).

In your case, the key to successful applications will be making your experience and your goals vivid. Try to get the reader excited about your family’s enterprise, and your vision for it. Be sure also your application captures your varied leadership experiences.
