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?

Hey there good sir,
And good to hear from you!

Now, I'd LOVE to help you out and get down with your profile.

The thing is I am missing detail.

I need a LOT more info from you - school name, employer name, titles, promotions, greatest achievements, volunteer work, sports, community service, religious involvement, leadership.. etc. before I can give you a real evaluation.

It will also be very helpful if you can elaborate upon your goals.

Have a look at some of the other very detailed profile requests on this board and do something similar and I'll be happy to get back to you.

to answer your main question: the schools you have selected are too high. You lack the IIT/NIT school on your profile, and your GMAT is under par for an Indian candidate. That, plus taking into consideration the great difficulties of your demographic will likely place Top 10 schools out of range. Instead, I would suggest looking into schools in the 10-30 range.

Here are a couple of articles with deep research that should help you think things through:
