Your GMAT score is top-10 caliber, but your lack of managerial responsibility, less-than-stellar extracurriculars, and very common applicant pool (male Indian IT), mean top 10 schools will be longshots for you. Michigan might be a reasonable top 10 "reach" school for you to target. Financial Times ranks it no. 1 in corporate strategy. Other FT top 10 corporate strategy schools include Yale, IPADE, Georgetown, and Washington U. (Olin), and you would be competitive at these schools.
Not sure I understand your question regarding well-rounded vs. tech schools. If your goal is strategy consulting you should target schools that are strong in it -- period. If your goal is IT consulting then target schools, like UC Irvine, for example, that are strong in it.
Hope this helps.
Thanks for the reply!. Just to clarify I am not in IT. I work as an analog IC design engineer (think Analog Devices/Texas Instruments/Maxim) which, although high tech is completely different in job duties and skills that you need
. The field is relatively niche and specialized. One reason for the lack of managerial experience is that the groups tend to be very flat and small.
That being said, I can see how the pool (Indian/Male/High tech) is pretty big and I will have to differentiate myself from the rest.
I am sorry about second question, it was a little too ambiguous, badly phrased and open ended for this forum..
P.S - I bought your book last week and has given me a few new perspectives on writing essays.
