Hey there

I'm looking for some help.

Here's my profile

26, from Pakistan, went to the top university/business School in Pakistan, gpa 2.5. 3 years of work experience with well known organizations. gmat 680. Not a lot of money.
I just wanted to know which schools in the US should i be targeting? I don't know how to go about it.

Any help would be welcome. Also, which ranking is the best (ft, economist, qs?)

Thanks for submitting your profile information. Based on the information provided, I would probably suggest you target the lower range of tier 1 and upper range of tier 2 programs. MBA programs will assess you on several dimensions, including your academic record, your professional experience and your extracurricular and community leadership. Each dimension is quite important.

Academically, your profile is somewhat weak (taking into account your low GPA and your GMAT score). I don't know the details of your professional leadership experience - you want to be able to demonstrate how well you work in teams, lead teams, take initiative to improve your company, etc. I also didn't see any mention of extracurricular or of community activities or leadership -- assuming you don't have any, this will be a gap in your profile.

You might look at programs like Georgetown, University of Washington, USC, Penn State. Depends on what you are looking for in a program - you'll have to do your research to find the right fit!

As for rankings - one isn't better than another -- they are each different and each use different methodologies to arrive at their lists. I suggest you consult a few of the top rankings (The Economist, Financial Times, Business Week, US News & World Report), research the differences between them, and see what each has to say about the different schools - you'll see that they vary significantly, and it's worth understanding why that is in the context of deciding what matters to you.

Good luck!
