I could use some advice on schools that would be good fits for me. My profile:

3 years of work experience (at time of matriculation) in early stage venture capital; was promoted from Associate to Venture Partner after one year
Extra-curriculars in college include President operation smile, VP sorority, President of Residence Hall, etc etc; activities post-college include singing in a professional level choir (10+ hour/week commitment, assistant section leader), dancing in a semi-pro hip hop crew, volunteering at a weekly homeless luncheon (includes some leadership such as spearheading clothing drive)
Looking to make a career switch into CPG brand management

That's obviously a fantastic profile. The keys for you will be articulating your career goals (the key for everyone really, but all the merit in the world and you can still get left out if you don't nail the appropriateness of the degree) and also expressing school fit. But the sky is the limit if you can do those two things effectively.

I would say programs to consider are:
Kellogg (specifically for consumer goods)
Booth (underrated for all marketing)
Stanford (perfect for powerhouse female applicants)
NYU Stern (great for career switchers)
Haas (great for career switchers)
Tuck (great for career switchers)

Hope this helps!
