Hi Anurag,

Well your profile looks absolutely fine. Just for your information the weightage given to work exp, extracurricular, acads & GMAT scores is not more than 35% to 40% in the entire b-school application. Most important factors in any b-school application are essays & interviews which alone covers 60% to 65% of the application. One of my friend who was an avg. student with 2 yrs. of work exp got admit to top 15 FT ranking b-school. The point is that you need to work hard on your application essays & interviews to convert your chances from application to admission. So, I would strongly suggest you to pursue your plans for 2014 intake. You can try your chances in b-schools by clicking http://www.general-ed.com/chances-of-bschool

Feel free to post any other concerns you might have or PM me your number to have a detail discussion over your profile & selection of b-school.

Cheers!!
Neha
