Thanks everyone for congratulations and advice.

I'm finding that researching schools and making up applications is no less stressful than studying for GMAT. So yeah, I guess I'm going to need my energy for the next steps as well...

btw. AWA score 6.0

Thanks!

So far I'm targeting the following schools:

INSEAD, Rotman (Toronto hometown school), IMD, and London Business School. I would like to establish a professional network in Europe. Also, I will apply to some American schools, but I don't know which ones exactly at this point. I'm waiting to hear back from an advisor to tell me what schools are in my range.

Can you tell me what schools I could/should apply for?

I think 740 is a great score for your target scores. A 770 would probably help you in landing a scholarship at one of the schools. Other than that I dont see a big difference between a 740 and a 780
