While your experience is excellent, your GMAT is low for LBS and INSEAD. Given the intense competition amongIndian applicants.I am not optimistic about your chances at these programs. Acceptance isn't impossible, but as I said I'm not optimistic.

Would you consider HEC, IE, or IESE?
Best,
Linda

Thanks a Lot, for your honest reply.

But, As per me MBA from any Top 20 B-schools would be sufficient for me. End of the day, MBA is just a podium to enhance and showcase my skills and ability to the recruiters. Any comments?

Is it worth to wait for another six month or year for LBS or INSEAD? I know, I can improve GMAT but I need to invest more time which is very precious to me.

By the way, message from you comes with very positive vibes as it displays...message..(from)...accepted.....:) Hope to see similar kind of message from B-schools.

Thanks again for your time and profound reply.

Those vibes aren't unintentional. :-)

Seriously you are a bit between a rock and hard place. Your age/experience levelis getting to the point where schools will want to steer you to EMBA programs. And that trend will only strengthen with another year of experience. So if yo postpone your GMAT earn a higher score, your experience level will be more of an issue.

On the other hand, if you wait until next year, the Sloan Fellows programs at Stanford, LBS, and MIT could be viable options for you. Check them out and see if they don't provide a good option if you are not accepted now to LBS or INSEAD.

Best,
Linda
