Hi gmatclub members,

First of all, let me thank this forum for helping me tremendously throughout the preparation phase of GMAT. I wrote my GMAT this Monday (7/31/2017) and got 750( Q:50, V41, IR: 7 and AWA expected >5).
My basic profile:
Undergrad from IIT-Roorkee, Batch of 2013, CGPA: 7.612 (81.16% with the conversion used by my college).
Working with Deloitte Consulting in India for last 4.1 years.
Couple of leadership roles in college.
Various extra-curricular activities in college.
Some 30+ hrs of community service last year.
Future Goal: Strategic and Management Consulting in the MBB.

Now, I am a bit confused about the schools that I should focus on. Getting a scholarship would be a major criteria for me.
Currently, I am targeting following schools for R1:
1. HaaS
2. Tuck
3. Kellogg
4. Ross
5. Fuqua

I am hoping to get some guidance from the experts on the forum regarding my suitability in the colleges. I am not sure whether I am stretching too much here in my selection. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks a lot in advance! :)

Positives:
1) Good GMAT Score +++
2) Undergrad brand: IIT +++
3) 4 years work experience is par for course. ++
Is it strategy consulting or tech consulting at Deloitte?

I don't see any negatives.

If it is consulting post MBA, Include the following Case Study Champions and great options for a consulting career)
1) HBS as First Choice School
2) Darden and Kenan-Flagler as Safety Schools. (Scholarship assured with your GMAT scores)

3) Others: Kellogg, Ross, Fuqua, Tuck (You can pick any two of these)

I won't look at Haas.

Ping me if you need any further assistance.

Thanks for sharing your profile. really nice work her eon the GMAT, Undergrad, and work experience. So you're in play at all of the schools you are applying to. I would swap out Darden for Haas if I were you to amximize your chances of getting in and landing in mgmt consulting

Nice looking profile! I expect you to be a competitive candidate. What type of community service experience do you have? Any leadership experience since college, at work or in your volunteerism?
