Kindly suggest what top ranked colleges do I stand a fair chance in such as HBS, Stanford, Wharton, Booth, Kellogg and Columbia.

Hi bhaskeee,

Thanks for posting, you have a strong candidacy. I recommend you read this case study of a candidate who worked for his family business, and who was accepted into Harvard Business School. This should provide insight into your application: http://www.stacyblackman.com/2011/06/09 ... applicant/

If you'd like, we also provide free 30 minute phone consultations here: http://www.stacyblackman.com/2011/06/09 ... applicant/

Cheers,
Conrad and the Stacy Blackman Team
