make sure that your goals are well developed, I also don't see anything here about current community service type activities ? Both will be influential in your success for the MBA application process, as will making sure that you apply in Round 1. Your credentials look solid and place you well with your realistic schools I think. cheers, alex

Hi Alex,
Thanks for the quick reply.
Actually, I missed out adding my current work with MagicBus. I am the Lead Spock at Barclays for Magic Bus, and apart from interacting with youths and helping them with their employment search, I also organized programs to raise awareness and encourage volunteers from Barclays to participate in various "Youth Employ-ability" sessions. The program has been a huge success with over 40 volunteers enrolled (from a crowd of ~300) for weekday/weekend activities. I am also involved with "Sambhav Foundation" helping in rehabilitation of differently-abled children, though not in a leadership position here.

Do you feel that my list missed out on any other school that I should apply to based on my profile?

some cool stuff there. If you are passionate about the "differently-abled" activity, then seek out a leadership position. Depending on your goals, you list of schools seems solid. Columbia would come to mind perhaps. cheers, alex
