Definitely happy to help but the best schools for you are going to depend on your post-MBA goals! Let us know what you are thinking there & we can help you figure out schools that could be a good fit. You want a strong connection between your goals and the school's area of expertise (e.g. operations, entrepreneurship, etc) so you can make a compelling why MBA/why our school argument.

Hey thanks.

Post mba goals are entrepreneurial ventures or taking up similar roles in early startups(product or senior leadership role in early startups) . (no operations anymore).

Please let me know your views

Haas & MIT are both great schools for entrepreneurship but given how tough your demographic is (and the fact that it's one that tends to have 740+ GMAT scores at these top schools) they are both going to be more in the reach category. Schools like HBS & Stanford are obviously strong in these areas as well but I think they would really be a stretch - more difficult to get into than Haas or MIT. UT Austin would definitely be one to seriously consider. They are very strong when it comes to entrepreneurship and you'd have a good shot at it. Ross would be a bit of a stretch but less difficult to get into than MIT or Haas. USC would be one to consider as well.

I will say that entrepreneurship is one of the toughest goals when it comes to applying to b-school. You'll need to have a well thought out idea (what unmet need do you plan to address?) & be able to convince the adcom that you can go up against the big players (who will have more resources than you) and succeed. It is also a very common goal, whereas operations is not - so it may be worth giving some thought to a possible operations goal instead!

If you'd like some help thinking through it definitely reach out to us & Claudia can set you up with a free consultation with one of our MBA consultants. You can reach her at claudia@admissionado.com. The goals are a critical piece since your argument for why MBA/why xyz school rests on them!
