My friend has the following profile

GMAT 570
Work EX - 2 years IT, 2 years family business
Academics : Good
Extra curr : Below average

He does not have the time to re-take gmat given the deadlines.
We are confused on what schools should he apply to.. He is from India and wants
to specialize in marketing..

Some of the schools we are looking at are:
buffalo
Fordham
RIT
Howard
Pace
California State:Fullerton
Babson

Could you please suggest his chances of getting through these and any other schools for the same if possible and if these schools are ok, considering the time and money to be invested?

Thanks!

While having what would be considered an average profile to below average profile for top schools, your friend's strategy of applying to third tier schools is a good one. One reason is that far fewer international applicants apply to his target schools, which could give him an edge where he lacks one in other areas. Sometimes family business experience is discounted by the adcoms, so make sure he is able to quantify and qualify his contributions there to innoculate concerns from the adcom that he was "given" the job at the family business without "earning" it. Tell him to contact us if he would like help--frankly his profile sounds like one that might benefit from a consultant as he navigates the admissions process.
