Thank you for your posting.

Based on your profile, I would recommend that you focus on some of the stronger regional schools in the USA. I do not see you being competitive at a top-20 program and thus think you should put your efforts where the payoff will be highest. The schools I recommend that you look at include: Rice, Notre Dame, Rochester, Vanderbilt, Miami, Boston University and Tulane. I would also recommend that you apply to around 7 schools - this way you will have options at the end of the day.

Good luck.

Thanks a lot for your reply.

I have been doing a lot of research on schools that would fit my profile and have narrowed down to the following in order of difficulty level for me to get an admit.

1. Emory-Goizueta
2. Kelley, Indiana
3. Univ. of Washington, Foster
4. Univ. of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign
5. OSU, Fisher
6. Purdue, Krannert
7. SMU Cox
8. Penn State Univ, Smeal

Please let me know if these schools are achievable for my profile. I plan to do consulting in a non technology company (consumer products or oil and energy) after my MBA.

Sridhar

Hello Kimberly,

Finally after a lot of rejects from Krannert, PSU, Foster and Fisher, I now have admits from 3 schools with good scholarships.

1. Tulane Freeman - 60% scholarship
2. Mason School of Business - 60% scholarship
3. George Washington University - 50,000 $ scholarship.

Please could you help me choose the best among these from an Indian student's point of view. Since all these schools are providing me almost the same scholarship, I would like to choose the best school in terms of placements for International candidates, cost of living in/around campus and a better university in terms of facilities.

Also, I intend to be a strategic consultant in the manufacturing industry after my MBA.

Please help me in choosing which one.

Regards,
Sridhar
