Hi Godsbenediction,
Your profile seems pretty good to me. However, the questions you ask are very broad and can't be answered in entirety. I'll try.

1. Your target schools seem pretty good to me for consulting industry. As for profile assessment you should check each school's existing class profile to get an idea of where do you stand.
2. 700+ for sure. I would recommend checking their profile on any/all of the ranking websites such as FT, ET, Businessweek, TopMBA, etc. You'll get the GMAT score and over all profile of school.
3. Research online. Google is your best friend.

Hope this helps. Shoot me any question if you like.

Hi,

I agree with your choice of a one year MBA program and not a two year MBA, taking into account both your age and work experience.

When you say consulting, do you mean strategy/management consulting or technology consulting? (The latter is more suitable for your profile).

Its always beneficial to have a high GMAT score- a 700+ should be your target.

In terms of advice, I 'd like to add two things:

1. start networking with the target b-school students- you'd definitely want to hear about their experiences. As one year MBAs are super hectic for the students, its gonna help if you reach out to them early on.

2. A lot of the info you have mentioned here is highly technical, which is irrelevant to business schools. Instead they care to know about your leadership/ management experiences. I have seen most IT applicants who I interact with ( and I see 5-10 resumes of applicants every day) having very technical resumes- not the business focussed type resumes adcoms wish to see.

So this is something you should work upon now- create a one page business resume, which you can also share with the admissions staff and students when you interact with them.

Do reach out if you'd like to discuss further.
