The lower a school in the rankings, the bigger the chance of getting a scholarship. That being said, schools use different criteria to decide who gets a scholarship - it largely depends on what candidates they feel they need in order to round out their class, which is something you don't know. HBS is strong in PE, but you can't rely on a schlarship there. Others: Chicago, Columbia, Wharton, Tuck. I don't know what your experience is, but if you haven't done investment banking or PE prior to your MBA, the chances of getting into PE are nearly zero and it is irrelevant whether the school sends a lot of people there as they are hired based on IB/PE experience, not school.

That's a good start. Bear in mind, though, that your ability to get a PE job may also depend on what bank you worked for. For instance, some PE shops take people only from bulge brackets, and the biggest firms like KKR take people mostly from GS or MS. Be very careful of what you write in your essays as a career goal as on seeing that you want to do PE, adcoms will scrutinize your work experience as they know that the industry is tough to crack and they will ding you if your goal seems unfeasible. That's why I would suggest to get in touch wih people from the finance clubs at these schools and ask them how realistic your career goal is given your background and what PE shops you can shoot for.

Thanks for advice. I have already applied to Wharton and Columbia, and will apply to HBS next week. I have applied to several safety schools as well, so, if I get a privilege to choose from several options, I will keep your suggestion in mind.
