Hello everyone , I would like to have your help about business schools. I am lost. I a 33 years old African woman , with 7 years of work experience and 700 on GMAT .

I have applied to different business schools this year :
-Stanford : rejected (round 2 )
-Columbia : rejected for the 2nd time
-LBS : rejected ( round 2 )
-Kellog : waitlist then rejected ( round 2 )
I have been advised ( I do not think that advise was good) to apply for round 3 in some B-schools ( Yale , Berkeley and Chicago Booth) and I have been rejected.
Now , I have been accepted by Insead but I really wanted to do a US MBA. What do you suggest ? Do you think I should apply to other schools ? Do you think it's too late ?
Thank you in advance.

You should go with your gut feel, if you want to do a US MBA just go for it. You would be starting in fall 2019, and there are good schools you can still try to apply to.

I have learned that its sometimes better to just wait and go for another shot. However, it is unlikely you will be accepted with the same inputs next year. Thus, would there be substanial improvement within the next 12 months, that would allow the US universities to accept you? If no, go for INSEAD, it's a nice school

Actually, I have quick advice. First, you need to make quick reflection on the reasons that might lead to all those rejection. I do not know if any of them provide feedback like Tuck or Darden. I will give you real example, Two years, there was an applicant who applied to various schools with GMAT 770 and rejected form all. he admitted that his essay and interviews was bad. So you need to dig deep.

Yo still have great school to apply such Ross and Tuck in Round 2. Pursue your dream but with smart analysis so that you can get good results. Also INSEAD is bi and great school.

Good luck
