What Do You Think of My Business School Application Plan? [#permalink]
10 Jul 2013, 10:00
My general profile is below.
I would like to know your thoughts on the schools in my current plan for applying to schools for 2014.
What shot do I have at CBS (my reach)? Do these schools help with my goal of returning to PE? Any I should add/remove? Anything that would make me more/less competitive at any particular school?
Any insight would be much appreciated, thanks.
