Hope you’re well. I’ve been following your feedback and profile evaluations and I love the way you handle each query!
I'm planning to apply for the FT MBA programs for the fall 2018 intake. I am looking at schools in US and Canada (Rotman). I’m also considering INSEAD, LBS and ISB. My dream school is GSB, especially because of its D-school (my profile will give you an idea as to why). I was hoping if you could give me an honest and critical feedback of my profile so I can plan my next steps better.
As some information is too personal to be shared on public forum, I'm sending it over via personal message. I hope that is okay! :)

Although I am planning to appear for GMAT again, but I do not want to miss on the deadlines. So, I am planning to start off with the applications now. Is that a good decision?

Hello Mam. I went through your website but found no information regarding how much you charge for your services. Could you please throw some light on the packages??
I am 26, female.
GMAT 760 (VA-42, QA-50, IR-4, AWA-6)
Chemical Engineer, 2011, NIT Warangal | GPA - 7.32
10th - 88.6% | 12th- 88.2%
Advertising professional with 4 years of work experience. Currently a creative supervisor in Dentsu, a leading Japanese network ad agency, handling some of the biggest brands in auto, telecom, tech and F&B respectively.Before advertising, I have one year of supply chain experience with India's most well known FMCG giant.
As one may deduce, I shifted to advertising from supply chain. The decision was led by a mix of factors - a desire to build a career involving brands, as well as an evaluation of personal interests and capabilities.
I want to do an MBA to propel my career further in marketing.
However, there is a caveat. I have a string of rejects from last year's MBA applications - Fuqua, Ross, Yale, Kellogg, ISB (the last one was reject after an interview, which didn't go well for certain reasons). However, I have since managed improvements in my profile (promotion, leadership opportunities, community involvement) and a GMAT score improvement (I applied with a 710 score then. Now it is 760)
How do you think the mix of my schools for this year should be?I have written essays I believe to be reasonably good, for Columbia and Tuck. And also looking at ISB reapp, and HEC Paris.But last year's rejects are weighing me down.
Any suggestions or pointers?
