Good to have a mix of schools here-- what is the theme of how you chose these schools as there is a bit of variety in them.

Wanted to understand what are my chances to any of my dream schools? To answer this fully-- and this is something that you should reflect upon-- really ask yourself why you need the MBA and what you want to do with it-- as that informs which schools you pick. I can't see a clear theme from your school list. Don't assume just because you have a 740 GMAT that GSB is in reach as the GMAT is more the ticket price-- that allows you to then be considered as you tell your story-- but it has to be a compelling story of what matters most to you and why-- and how your work and life has been built around this theme. Some of the other programs CMU and Kelley I think you are a strong candidate for-- and that Booth, Yale and Stanford will require some research and also more clarity on why this is the right place for you. Stratus has some great resources in helping people to tell those compelling why MBA/Why Now/Why this school stories-- and I encourage you to reach out for a free consult to learn more how we can help you as you go through this process. https://stratusadmissionscounseling.com ... b-visitor/
