Critique my application strategy


Hi all!

I am getting ready to submit my applications for a few US business schools. I wonder if anybody could give me some feedback on the schools I am applying for?

I work in marketing. I've been in marketing roles for about 4.5 years. I'd like to move into consulting, or perhaps start my own marketing business. I have scored 700 on my most recent GMAT attempt. So I plan on applying to the following schools for round one application deadlines:

- Kellogg (reach school)
- UCLA Anderson
- Cornell
- Emory (safety school)

I am wondering about my chances at these schools, or if somebody can recommend others that I should apply to instead. But I need to be quick, because round one deadlines are coming up!

Thanks!

It sounds like a reasonable strategy, and I think that you're in the ballpark for all of these schools, even Kellogg.

For a career in consulting, you might also consider Duke. The school has strong recruiting relationships with the big firms, and a good number of grads go into Bain, Deloitte, McKinsey, etc.

Thank you, Ezra. I've added Duke to my list.
