Hi Alex,

Thanks for the response. Could you elaborate on the response though. You have mentioned "the rage of schools" so does that mean I need to apply to all the schools. That would be a hectic task. It would be great if you could give a "better fit" rank to the colleges and probably add/subtract a few. Do you feel Tuck is achievable with a 3 year work-ex and my kind of profile? If yes why? If no why?

Could you also elaborate on the "doing best on applications" part. Do you think the short profile that I have written could be made into a story that fits these colleges. I am particularly interested in your comments on Tuck, Kelly and Emory. What is the likelihood of being a strong contender in these schools. Also, equally important are your comments on Katz, Urbana Champaign and Babson, do I look like a considerably strong contender for these schools (In other words could you give me a 90-95% chance of making into these schools)?

Thanks again,
Hope to hear soon from you.
Simplygood.
