Target Schools:
Of these schools- if you apply to Fuqua in 2018 Early action for next year- and you engage with Fuqua now to both let them know of your interest and learn more about the program and how it will help you- you have best odds then in that earliest round for India. For tips on how to research MBA programs from afar- read this: ... ram-india/

Of this list here- I think that Tepper, Kelley, Said and UNC would potentially be your best odds- but you can increase those odds by really doing your research on why you are a good fit at these programs- so I'd focus on your 5 top choices- perhaps a mix of target and stretch (with more targets) and really engage now to stand out as someone who did their homework. If you are applying now for R2- you are insanely busy as that's really almost too much work to start all these now if you are not well underway...If you are applying for next year- I'd encourage you to look at a program we offer called early advantage- where we help candidates assess their profile in advance- and have time to shore up any weaknesses- in advance of applying! If you plan to apply in next fall for following year- this is a great time to start this program in Jan. For more info on this- reach out to us for a profile review at this link: ... b-visitor/
