Hi everyone!

Some feedback on my profile/b-school list would be much appreciated!

Current status

I've spent the last year visiting campuses to short-list my schools, and my list currents stands as per below (in no particular order). I've added in some comments, I'd love to hear your thoughts.

-Columbia (loved the campus & classes that I attended, generally got a good vibe. Will have to work hard to prove fit though..)
-MIT (Visited campus, I assume this would be a good fit with my goals, but I don't know if I want to go to b-school with a bunch of engineers much like me?)
-Ross
-Tuck
-Cornell
-Kellogg

Visited Booth, thought it was too finance focussed and didn't really connect with the campus. Visited Harvard, I know this may be a good "fit" with my goals, but I found the students / adcoms a bit snobbish and the spread-out campus didn't click with me.
I'm not looking for a technology/entrepreneurship MBA, so I haven't considered the West Coast. Is that a mistake? Should I be looking at additional schools based on my profile/goals?

That was fairly long. I'd appreciate hearing your thoughts!

I would at least give the west coast schools a bit of research before crossing them off your list. They're not all focused on high-tech / entrepreneurship...

And your profile / stats look solid. Get those essays set and you'll be a contender!

YourDreamTheater,

Thanks for the feedback! Haas was added to the list a few weeks ago. Columbia is off the list now, and so is Cornell.
