Target schools requd [#permalink] New post 23 Jul 2004, 07:06
Hi
I want to target top 15 US B schools, I had few admits this year from Arizona State Univ, Richard Ivey (Canada), Rochester, Manchester. And had reject from UCLA (was R3 applicant) and reject from ISB (Indian School of Business)
But I left those all coz I was not convinced with the rank of these schools and in Ivey I did not get any help with loans.
So now I want to apply to top 15. And here are my stats.
5+ Years of IT work Exp in companies like Infosys, Oracle.
Indian By nationality.
UG from IIT (one of the top 5 engg institutes in India)
UG percentage is 68%
GMAT 710 AWA 5.5
Toefl 260

Please help me find out 5-6 target B-schools to which I should apply.
Thanks in advance...

What are your goals for the degree? Picking five or six elite schools is quite easy but I'm not certain that our selection criteria would coincide.

Take comfort in the fact that you have already been accepted by two fine programs- Western Ontario and Rochester. For students interested in Finance, Rochester offers strong preparation.

Please give us some insight into what type of concentration or field interests you.

Look into Michigan, Duke, CMU, Haas, UCLA, UNC, and UT. For stretch schools, consider Kellogg and MIT.
Good luck!
