Dear fellow students, admission consultants and anyone who is there to share their knowledge and opinions to push each other a step closer to their goals.
I have been looong waiting for my profile to become one of an MBA applicant and you very well know how much effort, time, nerve and luck it requires just to get to the point where you are eligible for Ivy League MBA programs.

Next year, I am planning to apply for either Johnson's MBA, LBS's MBA or any other European top tier MBA programs (Like HEC, Mannheim, Imperial, IMD Lausanne, etc.).
"The huge amount of time-consuming" researches about the Business schools did not really get me a compelling conclusion about what's better and what's worse. So I am asking you for some information, facts, anything that will clear my head from chaos.

To make sure you understand my question I will give you my bio in short.
==> 23 years old Caucasian, GMAT 690, GPA 3.2, 3 years of WE in financial consulting. (and I know the first thing that crossed your mind is that I have rather average profile (maybe not good enough for top tier MBA's) but please omit that part in your responses and just help me to see vividly the pros and cons of the already mentioned business schools).

I come from a developing country with poor prospects and high unemployment rate, what's worse is that average monthly salary is about 300$. Thus, my ultimate goal and a big concern is that after completing the MBA I HAVE to stay in the States, or wherever I do the degree. Otherwise, (in case I will have to return to my home country) the investment I am about to make will simply turn out to be the waste of money. So, I am asking you to help me decide which direction should I aim for. I was anticipating that Cornell would be a good choice and a goal to aim for (in case I manage to get in), but also thought about the risks I may encounter after I complete the degree. With the risks I mean not managing to get a job after the MBA and having to come back to my country.

Of course there is no such thing as being 100% sure of getting employed right after the graduation, but you can recommend me the schools that mostly guarantees a student with a decent job, you also can get me some insights about the BSs and certain cities that would help me to make a right choice.

Thanks in advance, every word from you means a world to me.

CANADA!!!!!!
You want employment ?
Canada is a great option. But if you want to go for brand name, you might want to go to USA for MBA or to Eu for MIM
