Hey Guys,

I am a 29 yr old Electrical Engineer. I am originally from india but a permanent resident in US now. I am planning on going for my MBA and needed some help in school selection. Due to family constraints I am looking for schools in the NE region. My profile is below:

BS in Electronics from an average school in India ( GPA 3.2)
MS from an average university in US (GPA 3.9)
Work experience of 5 years at Intel, startup company, 3M and Philips. Been working in Manufacturing, Medical Devices, Semiconductor industry.
Extra curricular mostly in college with organizing different events, also started a non profit fund, voluntary services at work.
GMAT : 710

I am looking at full time programs at HBS, Sloan, Columbia, Stern, Tuck maybe Cornell/ Booth/ Kellogg( if i get into Booth/ kellogg i can move). Also looked at some part time or emba options at booth, kellogg.

I will be applying for 2012 fall...

Any suggestions?? I am not sure if I have the background or the score to get into a top tier school for a full time program..

Your GPA and GMAT are actually pretty good. In order to be more competitive you will need to create a very strong application with clear short and long term goals, strong LORs from individuals who can speak in detail about your accomplishments, and a clear understanding as to why an MBA is a good idea. I would also recommend that you apply in round 1 or 2 to further increase your chances of getting in. Be sure to have someone read over your essays and practice interviewing with you.

Even if your school selections are based on geography, you need to find a link between your goals and the schools strengths in order to create a compelling argument as to why that particular program is a good fit for you. Be sure that each set of essays is tailored to a specific program. Admissions committees can usually tell when an applicant has used one set of essays for multiple applications. The decision between part-time, EMBA, and full-time depends upon your ability to go without an income for two years, your employer's willingness to sponsor your MBA and/or your desire to complete your program within two years.

Best of luck!
