Congratulations! Great story and very inspiring. I've sort of hit a wall in my studying and hearing this has given me some ideas on how I might break through it. Thanks!

Also I was wondering, what was your timing strategy on the math? This seems to be a big issue for me...

I didnt really have a timing strategy for maths.. I gave myself 3 min each for the first 15 questions and took it from there.. I really had to rush later, but the scores were always favorable so I didn't bother..

I wish you all the luck! On the positive side, I saw that LBS has a mostly international class, and this is surely a good thing.
I too considered applying to LBS and LSE, but I got accepted at Fuqua

Awesome job man, the way you have written is absolutely inspirational.

I have two queries regarding the issue;

1.What do you mean by "math tutorial"?

2.Is it possible to maintain the schedule you have stated by providing 3 hours a day and 5-6 hours in the weekend;specially for an average student?

!. When you identify a weak area in maths, for eg Permutaions, search online for Permutations GMAT tutorial. You will get your answer.

2. Yes it is easily possible. However you will have to concentrate all the time. You cannot goof off in those hours.. :D

Great story! It's good to see someone that was in the same boat as me at the beginning of my studies (with low 500 scores). I just hope I can be in the same boat as you by the end!
