hi there, msalmangul, after reading your profile it seems to me that you're a pretty standard finance guy who wishes to switch to consulting. You have good academic record and GMAT score. I'm not entirely sure how you came down with this list though. HBS, obviously, can get you in anywhere you want as long as you do the work, but on the other hand, HBS will likely be a stretch for you (apply by all means). HBS has recently skewed its demographic toward a younger applicant pool, but that doesn't mean that HBS doesn't accept anyone over 30 (this same logic applies to Stanford).

I think that if you've done your research well on the schools, apply for them. These schools will get you into the job field you want to be in, again, as long as you do your legwork. I'm not sure how LBS got into this list, but I'd recommend this school only if you're gunning to work in Europe. As you probably know, you have absolutely no safety schools on this list. If this was a personal choice, then don't worry about it. Otherwise, I'd add a few more consulting-feeder schools, such as Tuck, Ross, and Fuqua on there. Good luck!
