Hey aditi2589

Thanks for getting in touch! Very interesting profile! I hope you are able to get your "smartcane" up and running. That's really interesting and could be a great boon to your candidacy. So here's the thing: the schools you've mentioned are some of the best of the best. It can be hard to evaluate your chances without a real GMAT score and given that you are currently not in full-time employment. Hopefully you are taking the GMAT soon and per the above, I hope your "smartcane" gains traction! As soon as you have a score, I recommend that you set up a free consultation with us to talk more so we can give you more specific advice and really understand your CV. What I would recommend in the meantime is that you also organize some safety schools towards the bottom of the top 20 and into the top 25. (I use the US News rankings as my US list.) I hope that helps and all the best for your GMAT!
