I would like to know which B-schools are kind of "in my range" since I honestly think my profile is not really outstanding, but still not bad. As I want to start studying for the GMAT, I would also like to know what score would be sufficient for these schools.

So about me:

I'm Austrian and I speak three languages more or less fluently (German. English, Croatian)

- I went to the major B-school in Austria, which is currently a Top 30 European B-School, with a GPA of 1.8 (Top 2%) and specialized in Financial Management and Entrepreneurship

- Alongside my studies I mostly had jobs:
- 1 year parttime accountant for small investment firm
- 1 month Internship in Fin. Management for major Austrian company >10k Employees
- 2 months Advisory Department Internship with EY
- 1/2 year parttime position for one of the best Austrian Consulting firms - internationally not know though
- 7 months Fulltime Financial Analyst with Pfizer (alongside writing my Bachelor's thesis)
- 1/2 year internship for German IT Services Provider (>60k Employees) in NYC

- Furthermore I have spent one term abroad at UCF in Orlando

- extracurriculars:
- Played in a soccer team where I was captain as well
- Played in a Volleyball team
- participated in a project with a local company and AT Kearney as team leader (1 Semester)
- participated in a project with Airbus as a team leader (1 Semester)
- was best in class on an Austrian math competition
- played poker semiprofessionally (not sure if I want to state that in my resume)

I am currently doing the internship in NYC, despite being already done with school and am about to start with learning for the GMAT. My plan is to apply after my internship for the major consulting firms (one of the top tier firms' recruiter already told me that she would invite me to an interview, have not talked to the other firms yet)

I honestly do not know where I see myself, so I would greatly appreciate your opinion on which schools would suit me best and what score would be necessary.

Best Regards,

I am a little confused by your profile--why are you doing an internship if you have already graduated? Seems like you should be working full time in your first post UG career job. Schools will give you soft credit for work during college, but will usually want to see several years of full time employment after you graduate before they will give you serious consideration for b-school. Having said that, due to your international experience and being from an under-represented country in Western Europe, American b-schools may take a second look at you where they otherwise might send you back to the workforce for a couple more years if you were a US applicant. A lot will be driven by the GMAT score you are able to achieve. If you can get a really good GMAT score, you may have a shot at a top 10 school here, but if not, your lack of full time post UG work experience may be your Achilles heel.
