Hello,

Thanks for posting your query here.

Your choice for MBA schools is pretty broad, I personally feel you gotta narrow it down to with priorities (region/ one year or two year/ post mba goal etc)

However a few general points

1) GMAT --- Your GMAT is in the range of top schools of all regions, so you GMAT will not be a constraint for you to apply.

2) Indian Engineering Pool - Being a candidate from Indian Engineering Pool, you have challenge to differentiate yourself from other peers from India (with 700+). I do not get much sense as to what you have done during your work.

You gonna really demonstrate some solid work ex because you have only 2 years work ex, and apart from that you have to differentiate yourself. Highlight your leadership experience if any

3) EC -- your ECs really need to speak what you have done ? not just an association, but some concrete contribution especially if in the form of leadership.

About schools , as i mentioned earlier, work and research on your priorities and you can then seek insights from us for the same

Hope this helps

I'm looking at the top 20 US B-Schools and ISB mostly. I would love INSEAD, but people tell me my work ex is low. I do have some points on leadership and initiative which I'll be highlighting in my essays. Even the community service, it's not just an association, I'm one of the active members driving many others to organize and participate. I think I'm still being vague here, and I'm ready to answer any specifics.

Hello,

Thanks for providing further information.

As far as top 20 US programs are concerned, your GMAT is not a hindrance to apply for the same, so rest depends on how you put forward your application and emerge out as a Unique candidate.

H/S/W could be a stretch considering your profile, but you can surely give it a shot. top 5-10 schools could be a good try, and with schools from 10-20, you would be a competitive candidate

For ISB, the score might be at par with the pool of students (similar to your profile), so again the question comes on how you differentiate yourself and how you share your unique stories with adcom in your essays

Hope this helps
