Hi,
I request you to provide me guidance on choosing which B-schools to apply for in Round -2.
Brief Background: GMAT 700 (Q 48 V 37)
I am a 26 year old Indian male candidate with 4 years of work experience with PwC and EY in Risk Consulting Services ( purely client facing). I also have Entrepreneurial experience as i worked in my family business ( Retail and wholesale trading) for 1.5 years after graduation. I graduated in 2013 with B.com from Osmania university. (GPA-3.9)
Additionally, i have completed all the levels of CFA program in consecutive attempts.(2016-2018).

I am very determined for 2019 intake and would consider top Bschools across India, Singapore US, UK, Canada. Please suggest schools where the probability of getting an interview call would be high enough.

Thank you!

One piece of advice I'd give you for your b-school apps is to name your family business as your post-MBA goal. Adcoms love family business applicants -- you've got a guaranteed job (which is good for their employment stats) and you're usually also able to ultimately really drive significant results & impact, and adcoms like alumni who have gone on to have big impact. You are coming from the toughest demographic out there when it comes to b-school apps, and it's one that tends to have very high GMAT scores (740+) but you can use your family business experience and some family business focused post-MBA goals to help overcome those challenges. Based on what you shared here, I'd recommend looking at Tepper, UNC & Emory as target schools in the US. Oxford would be a good option in the UK.

Thank you for considering my request.
Does Kellogg looks a realistic choice?

Kellogg will be more in the reach category - their average GMAT is ~730 so your 700 makes it more challenging. In addition to that, you are coming from the toughest demographic out there when it comes to b-school applications & it's also one that tends to have very high GMATs. When a school has an average GMAT of 700 for example, the Indian males who are accepted often have scores more like 740+. The fact that you don't have an engineering background (and the family business) will help you differentiate yourself, but you'll still be considered in comparison to this demographic of Indian male applicants to some extent & the competition is fierce. So like I said, it's worth a shot but it would be in the reach category given all of these factors. And if you think there is any chance of improving your GMAT score without taking time away from your essays definitely give that a shot!
