First thing I think you need to do is adjust your school selection. There are a plethora of great programs that are not Ivy league schools. Also, if you want to apply to Ivy league schools is it because they fit your goals or because they are Ivy league schools?

I've seen some people go to Ivy league schools (for undergrad) because they wanted to say they went to an Ivy league school, but they were miserable because the fit was terrible.

HI,

I am sorry for not being explicit on the names of the schools

I will be applying to not more than 5 schools

My first choice is wharton (UPenn)
Second choice is Kellogg
Third choice would be ISB.

Have not decided up on the fourth and fifth.

The reason i would like to go to these school is because

Wharton - is considered to be very good for finance careers which obviously matches my goals

Kellogg - Course curriculum is pretty impressive and i believe that this will help me a lot in my goal

Hope this will help you in evaluating my profile.

Thanks & Regards

I don't see anything that explicitly should preclude you from applying to those schools. That said I would recommend that you pick less competitive schools for #3 and #4.
