I see in a lot of posts that people have specified their nationality when they ask about their chances of getting into top schools.
What role does nationality play? Would a B-school reject a person of excellent credential just because they have too many people from that country and instead go for another person who has worse credentials just because they want diversity?

amriyer,

That is probably true. An acquaintance of mine told me that
Stanford (her school) does look for balance of student body. If the admission decision is purely based on GMAT, you would end up with a class full of foreign born Engineers.

Your greatest competition will be applicants with similar profiles. In other words if you're a consultant, consultants are your greatest competition. If you're an engineer, engineers are your greatest competition and so on.

With regard to nationality, schools also want a healthy representation of international and domestic students in their classes so it definitely is a factor, although not nearly to the degree that a lot of applicants suspect.

One question I get a lot is: How can so many South / East Asian applicants with super GMAT scores (750+) get rejected from top programs? The simple answer is that many focus way too much on the GMAT and completely miss the boat on the other application components.
