How high can I aim T10 possible? I am an Indian guy, went to penn state undergrad, graduated with a 3.4 gpa in finance, been working at a credit rating agency for 4 years (think s&p/Moody’s/Fitch), got promoted once, got a 328 on the GRE, do I have shot at schools like Yale, Tuck, Kellogg, Ross, UVA, NYU, Columbia, Cornell, and UCLA?

Combination of what PEA1 and A1 said. Based strictly on numbers, A1 list is right for distinction between targets and reaches. Without knowing the info PEA1 said, hard to get a wholistic view of your profile. Plain vanilla profile and A1’s list probably holds true, while a unique background could bring this M7s closer to target schools (but still slight reach).

3.4 is low and so is 328 for an over presented pool. T15-T25 look doable though unless you have stellar ECs or launched a startup.

As a penn state white male with similar stats (3.47 gpa and 327 gre) I was accepted at Stern, Ross with a halfride, WL at Tuck, Interviewed RD at CBS, dinged at Kellogg and Wharton

Folks hoping to get some input from your experiences and the immigration professionals in this bowl. My sister is working out of Chicago and GC recruitment campaign failed. Similar campaign passed in Denver office and she was included in that campaign and notified that she will have to move offices to Denver. At what point does she have to move? I140 stage or as soon as PERM is approved? Does she have to be there now? Appreciate your thoughts on this matter.
