Hi,
I have applied in Wharton and CBS and bit confused between Yale vs Stern or even you can add Sloan to choose from. I want to apply in one of these 3 (or may be 2):

PS: I know all of these schools are stretch for me based on my GMAT, so not worried about that. I have accepted that fact. A brief about my profile:

Experience- Total around 9, out of which last 5 years in the investment domain, Since last 3 years, I am working in the renewable energy(solar), water, waste, sectors. Now working with Chairman of the largest solar developer in India. So can mention about experience working with CXO, leadership, etc.
GMAT- 690 (Q 98%, V62%).
College: Master of Engineering from one of the top 5 Engineering college in India, 9.2/10 GPA, In undergrads, I am university Gold Medalist. CFA charter holder
Extra curricular: Been associated with couple of good NGOs as a senior team member, working in water sector and rural development. In college, was member of placement cell, Teaching Assistant, and also organised an industry conference. Currently, also volunteer with CFA society in my town.
I have also run an educational venture back in 2010-2012, it was doing well. Also tried another venture in the healthcare last year, but didn't get success.
Post MBA focus- Entrepreneurship. I want to either start my own venture or be part of a start-up (most likely back in India as I would love to do something here for the society to create a positive impact). So key focus is entrepreneurship and impact.

So based on these information and considering the fact that all three schools are stretch, which school I should apply to (in terms of maximum chances).

Kindly revert.

Thanks

Hi there,

I think Stern and Sloan are the leading contenders out of the three on your list. I'd think a bit harder about why you're so enthralled with entrepreneurship and be as specific as possible about your vision. Stern is a plus due to their global network (since you want to enhance your global reach, especially in India). Sloan is a good option given your background and desire to be an entrepreneur. To take you seriously, though, you need to have a rather well thought out plan. Let us know if you'd like to chat about how we can best position your story for your upcoming R3 applications. Best of luck!

Thanks for your response. I understand that Sloan is good for entrepreneurship, but also need to accept the fact that it's very hard to get into out of these 3, without lower acceptance rate.
Given my GMAT and other data, don't you think I should drop off Sloan and think between Yale n Stern. Stern has the lowest average GMAT score.
Yes I am interested in entrepreneurship but if in case I couldn't do it just after MBA, I would like to go into investment management (PE/HF ). Which one would you recommend then?
Do I also consider Stern higher cost of attendance (almost $15K more than Yale) or that can be covered off through internship etc.

When looking at these top schools, we truly believe you have to target schools that make the most sense in terms of your goals, your story, and your overall fit. Sure, the acceptance rate is better for you at SOM vs. Sloan, but if you consider the culture and types of people who make up the SOM class, do you truly fit in? If not, your application just won't stand out and is likely to be passed on. The marginal difference in cost of attendance will be made up upon graduation based on average salary achieved from these schools. Best of luck!
