Long time reader, first time poster. This is a great forum and I'm looking forward to getting some advice from all of the helpful people here. If you could evaluate my profile, that would be great. Thanks.

Education - 3.45 GPA from top 10 undergrad business school on east coast. Major in Accounting. CPA.

Work Experience - 4 years at matriculation of big 4 audit experience on the east coast with a focus in Healthcare, specifically working on the provider/hospital side.

GMAT: 700 (Q45 V40)

EC's: Working on the committee of an organization focused on special needs individuals. Additionally, part of a local committee healthcare organization that conducts seminars on accounting/revenue reimbursement specific to the healthcare industry. United way and Junior Achievement Volunteer.

Post MBA: I would like to get my MBA to make the transition to Management Consulting focusing in the healthcare industry, specifically on the payer/provider side. I would like to use this consulting experience to eventually work at an high level position at a hospital.

I am looking at Yale, Wharton, Northwestern, Harvard, Booth, Ross, and Fuqua. I would like to get into a school where I can focus on management/strategy as well as healthcare management.

Do I have a chance at any of these schools? For schools that offer a Healthcare program, are these generally more selective, or does it bring a form of uniqueness to my resume. Many thanks for your evaluations.

Given your profile (solid middle-of-the-road candidate for the top schools), you're choosing a good range of schools.

HBS and Wharton are stretches but you probably already know that. Go for it, as long as you're keeping realistic expectations and applying to other schools as well.

Kellogg and Booth are slight stretches (there's enough folks of a similar caliber at these schools, but plenty who didn't get in either). But still worth applying to.

Yale, Ross, and Fuqua (and others in this range like NYU, UCLA, Cornell, Darden) are your sweet spots. I think you have a reasonable shot at these schools and where you should focus most of your efforts on. Choose 3-4 from this list. And Duke is known to have a great healthcare program anyhow, so it should be one of your top choices.
