Help in shortlisting colleges

Post Sat Nov 29, 2008 7:35 am
Hi,

Here's my profile in brief:

Indian/Male/26 yrs

B.Tech in IT - average percentage :74%

Almost 5 years of work experience, started as a Software Engineer. Last 3 years in one of the largest product based s/w companies with an international team. Have earned 2 promotions so far.

Good extracurriculars!

GMAT score: 760 - Q50, V44, AWA 4.5

My aim is get into management consulting. Given my IT background, I have already decided on applying to MIT Sloan.

I am looking at applying to schools with a good general management record and I have shortlisted the following five but given that I only have a month left, I think I should only apply to three more so that I can submit quality applications and improve my chances of getting an admit. So please help me choose 3 from these 5:

Kellogg
Ross(Michigan)
Tuck - Should I even bother applying now in round 3?
Fuqua(Duke)
Goizueta-Emory - I included this in the list becasue I was told that its generous with scholorships.

Thanks in advance!
