Hi,

Need help regarding applications and selection of colleges. My profile is as below:

* Indian
* GMAT: 710
* BTech in Civil Engineering - CGPA 9.1/10 ~ 3.64/4.
* Work Ex of 3 years in Top real estate company of India
* Lots of extra-curricular.
* Why MBA: Want to shift from a technical role to a managerial role. Feel that I will reach stagnation in 1-2 years in my current profile.
* Post-MBA Goal: Want to get into a consulting job to better utilise my analytical skills.
* Target: US: Top 5-15 BScools (Kellogg, Fuqua, NYU Stern, Sloan etc) India: ISB.

Questions:

* Am I targeting the right schools considering my profile?
* I understand that nothing guarantees an admit, but still what is the probability of a person with my profile getting an admit from the above mentioned schools?

Questions:

* Am I targeting the right schools considering my profile?You have an uphill climb with that GMAT for your pool- does not mean it can't happen- but the odds are lowered. I would also look at UCLA anderson for strong RE and UNC Kenan-Flagler and those odds- while still tough also- might be a bit better. For Fuqua you might want to look at the early decision option for better odds- but with some commitment- so keep that in mind. Might also add a school like Emory or Olin for safety.
* I understand that nothing guarantees an admit, but still what is the probability of a person with my profile getting an admit from the above mentioned schools? I will answer this question in the context of what I saw from UNC Kenan-Flagler and let you extrapolate from there. It was a crowded space in 710 GMAT land for candidates from India. What can help a bit is that you have the good grades and then also some interesting work- if you can make the case that you have done your homework and know why you want each school -beyond that you just want to get in or think you can get in- will make your application all the more compelling and thus increase your odds.
