Hi,

I am french, caucasian
27 years old when i will enter the MBA (2006)
Born and lived in Africa for 15 years (Cameroon 7 + Ivory Coast 8)
International Busines School in Paris for 4 years with 1.5 year working internship (3 months in Spain + 6 month France + 6 months USA)
If I enter the MBA in 2006, I will have 3 years of experience in China as a Sales Manager for a manufacturing company, (my direct sales accounts are world leading companies in their field such as Philips, Nokia, Sony Ericsson, Valeo, ...)

Gmat results :
550 (Q39 V27) in Sept 04
500 (Q38 V23) in Nov 04
620 (Q48 V27) in Sept 05
640 (Q48 V31) in Nov 05

Toefl : 270
GPA : 3

I want to target as high as i can :P
I am not interested by Marketing but except that any other general MBA would be ok for me. Even with finance...Which schools could I target in Round 2 ? Are top-10 schools totally unreachable ?

My first list (before taking this terrible GMAT) would have been (in order of preference) :

my first picks are mainly in finance, I hope my Quant result in Gmat would be ok and that the TOEFL result would lower my bad result in the Gmat Verbal score :

1- Wharton
2- Yale
3- NYU

then:
4- Darden
5- Michigan
6- Carneggie or Emory


Thanks

Antoine

You are tough to predict because your background and work experience are quite impressive, but your academics are on the weak side. I think you should cut down this list and add Rochester, Georgetown, and Indiana to your list so that you can improve your chances of acceptance somewhere.
