Dear Linda,

Could you please give some feedback on my profile and my list of schools.

I'm 30 years old Russian male with pharmaceutical education (top 4 university in Russia) and 6 years experience in healthcare market research (major international agency). My last position was client service director. Since last year I have been staying in USA (study English, prepare for GMAT, take some volunteering); so, now I work only part time for my former employer (exclusive contract). Will this fact harm my chances?

GPA 3.8
GMAT 710 (Q50, V38, AWA 4.0 IR 6)
I have rather limited Extra-curricular activities - some positions in university community and occasional volunteering.

Short term goal -development manager/ new product development manager at an international pharm.company

List of schools.
Strech - Duke, Stern
Reach - UCLA, Daren, IESE, UNC
Safe - EMORY, Olin at Washington University.

Are 8 schools too much? Would you recommed making my list shorter?
Thank you.
Andrey


Good work!. I pretty much agree with you. I don't think I would classify Olin as a safety. You may want to consider Johns Hopkins as your safety. If you are applying over two rounds, 8 schools isn't too much. Apply to the ones you are moss interested in R1 and if accepted, you won't need to apply to any R2.

Please let me know if you would like us to help you by editing your essays.

Best,
Linda

Best,
Linda
