Age: 27, South Asian, American

Undergrad: Top 10 Public School (Top 5 Undergraduate Business Program)

GPA: 3.65

-2 Years as a Financial Analyst in a Healthcare commericial/corporate banking group at one of the 4 largest commercial banks in the US. Performed financial analysis of investment grade healthcare systems and developed a strong understanding of the provider space
-3 Years as a Management Consultant for a small healthcare consulting firm.I worked on projects with national healthcare medicaid managed care organizations over 6-7 states so I gained a lot of experience on the payer space and experience with the medicaid/medicare space in a multiple number of states. I've gained experience leading my own work streams and my recommenders (Partner, Senior Manager) can speak to my leadership ability and my client interactions very well.

-In college, volunteered abroad as an HIV/AIDs educator for a summer
-Currently involved in a few volunteering organizations but about to start working with a high school mentorship program this fall

-680 (42Q, 41V)
-690 (48Q 37V).

Goals for MBA:

-Healthcare. I'm passionate about the industry and I don't want to change industries. I want to leverage my experience in both the finance/provider and management consulting/payer space and move towards hospital/provider strategy. With that said, I'm targeting schools with strong placements/programs within healthcare.

List: Fuqua, Ross, Kellogg, Tuck, Yale,

Any advice, tips, chances? Are these reaches?

Well, you have a pretty good profile, although my offhand dirrst reaction would be that these are all reaches unless you can boost your GMAT by 20+ points.

with Tuck and Kellogg being the toughest. And Ross the easiest in the list.

But still, if you think there's a good chance, that is what I would consider first. If it's really not an option because of timing etc, then my advice would be to get mving now on your applications, expand your list to Top20/25 and apply to more schools rather than less.
