Linda:

Just like many applicants, I am having quite a bit of trouble structuring my ideal portfolio of the schools that I want to applied to. I would like to stay mostly in the west coast and the only state that I would most likely want to be in in the east coast is New York. I am trying to think on a more realistic term regarding the schools that is in top clusters, because it's much more competitive and difficult to get in and I am not sure that I would even get above 700+ on the GMAT score. If possible, do you have any suggestions?

Also, Do you think I should apply to my homeschool even though their program is not the best program nor it offers me exactly what I want. But all i know is that I would definitely not be in debt and I wouldn't even need to take a loan.

Aside from that, What do you think of the University of Rochester? I heard great things about it and it seems friendly to younger applicants.

Choosing schools requires you to examine your goals for an MBA education, your qualifications and personal preferences, and the schools. KNowing only that you don't have a GMAT score and that you prefer to stay in the West of in NY, I don't have enough information to guide you. The link I referred you to should give you basic guidance. My ebook Best Practices for 2005 MBA Admissions, gives more.

I can't see applying to a school, even if free, if it doesn't help you achieve your goals.

Rochester is supposed to be strong in finance. I don't know its position vis a vis younger applicants.

Good luck!
