Sounds like you really want to apply, so go for it.

The thing with the 2+2 is that they're really looking for people who normally wouldn't have considered business in the first place (i.e. science and lib arts majors). As for engineering types, it seems more "domestic" meaning that they're looking more at US candidates.

Now, on the surface you may fit what they're looking for (you've got an engineering background). However, you're part of a demographic (Indian engineer) that does apply to b-school (and is in fact a pretty large segment of the applicant pool). As such, when an adcom looks at your profile, they'll assume there's a good chance you'll be applying to b-school anyways in a few years much like your fellow Indian engineers are doing now, so there's less reason to admit you over other applicants where that may not be as apparent. In any case, this isn't in your control, so all you can do is just do the best you can on the applications, and have realistic expectations about your chances going into it.
