I would say that with a strong application that your chances at good at all of the schools with the exception of USC. Simply put, admissions to Marshall is just more competitive and your credentials are on the margin there.

Good luck.

Hi Apoorva,

The list of your b-schools should be within your reach. Apart from them you may also target: Maryland-Smith, McDonough, Rice-Jones, Texas-Mays, Urbana-Champaign, Vanderbilt-Owen, Rochester-Simon, Michigan-Broad, Ontario-Ivey, Rotman, York-Schulich, and McGill. The list comprises of many but these are few good schools in USA and Canada with avg. GMAT range between 580-720. You can try your chances in b-schools by clicking http://www.general-ed.com/chances-of-bschool

The chances of selection in b-schools would on how well you frame application essays and showcase professionalism, maturity, leadership skills and ability to contribute to the class during the final interviews.

BTW are you in Bangalore? If yes, then you can meet top b-schools grads from Tuck, INSEAD and ISB on Sunday, April-21 and get your profile evaluation for free. To register, click http://www.general-ed.com/workshops-and-seminars. It’s absolutely free session, so you can invite your friends aspiring for MBA.

Let me know in case of other queries you might have. You can PM your details to discuss profile in detail or selection of b-schools.

Cheers!!

Hi Apoorva,

To strengthen your chances of scholarships, I would suggest you to apply in early rounds. As I said earlier, even scholarship chances depend on your application essays and interviews.

Feel free to post any other concerns you might have.

Cheers!!
