Hi Admissionado

Pls help me select schools

Below is my profile in brief
Gmat - 690 (Q 47 & V39)
AWA - 4.5 and IR - 7

I have about 2.5 yrs exp in IT (would be 3.5 by the time course starts next yr)
Prior to this I worked in my family business for about an yr and did some teaching too. I am an Indian

I still work with my dad on weekends, So i have about 4 yrs of experience
I want to do MBA in Finance or MIS. I would like to apply in colleges where i have good chances of scholarships. Tuition is also a criteria for selecting colleges

Below are the schools that I have finalized and what my counselor says my chances are

Ohio(fisher) - Competitive
Rutgers - Medium
Texas A&M - Competitive
UI - urbana champaign - Competitive
Pittsburgh - Katz - Meduim- competitive

Pls let me know if the list is good or should i apply to any other college
Also if you can mention any one university in top 20 where I have a chance of atleast getting an interview call, it would be great

Thanks for your help. I really appreciate it !!
