I would take a look at schools like Ross, Fuqua, Kelley, and UNC that place well in marketing / brand mgmt and will provide you some good training. They all feel reasonable based on your profile

Could you please mention some safe universities where I could have more chances of admission? Are all the above-mentioned colleges not too ambitious for me? I am a little low on confidence right now. Got my AWA score and its just 4.
