Hey Alex,

You have earlier advised me on Insead, Oxford and ISB.

After some in-depth research and changing priorities I have changed my target school list.
Could you please help me know my realistic chances at each of these schools.
I like your blunt and sometimes humorous criticism and thank you for your time.

It's a decent list -- some stretches (Kellogg and MIT) mixed in with some sweet spots (Ross, Tuck, Duke, Cornell, Darden) and a safety (Kelley). You may want to cut that list down by 1 or 2 schools though.
