What I mean is where should I apply to in order in maximize my chance to be accepted.

I am 28, my GPA is 2.85 :(, have 2 MS diplomas from the best University in my country (Poland), 50 months of work experience (AT Kearney, HBO, currently the European market leader in pharmaceutics wholesaling) as a financial analyst and financial controller. During my career I participated in Budget Plus software implementation in polish airlines and was a project leader of two different financial systems (SAP and SUN) implementations. I hope to achieve GMAT sore 720+. I have just finished a one year post-graduate part-time program ?Finances for Accounting and Management (GPA 3.62).

Since I am going to need a loan to cover all my expenses and will not have a co-signer, I NEED to apply to one of the best b-schools.

Obviously I am looking for a top 10 schools that would be willing to accept me in spite of my low GPA achieved in University.

Do you happened to know where could I find a kind of descriptions of the best school? I am looking for information about which school is especially good at which field (i.e. Kellogg ?Marketing).

The BusinessWeek Guide to The Best Business Schools. is a pretty good place to start.

Your MBA Game Plan reviews the top 30 school, but focuses on strategies on to get in rather than spend a lot of time on what the schools are like themselves. Personally, I think you can get all the background info you need from the schools' websites.

You might want to look at a school like Indiana (Kelley) which has a very strong reputation for marketing but is not usually recognized as one of the typical "Top 10" US schools.

There are certainly well regarded US schools that accept students in the 2.8 range, especially if the student in question has been out of college for several years.

Best,

I roamed around a little and found:

http://www.businessweek.com/bschools/03/

That link has a lot of good information. It is dated "03" so there might be more up to date info. Still good, in my opinion.

http://www.usnews.com/usnews/edu/grad/r ... _brief.php

This link is dated "05" so it might be a little more up to date (yay, I found my hope of CSOM ranked 21). I think this site is mainly trying to sell magazines though so there is not a ton of content.

Good luck, I have no experience with the items truthringer suggests.
