Thank you for sharing your profile. It will certainly be a tight squeeze to apply in R2, but you could at least do a couple applications. It depends how much of the prep work you've already done. If your applications are complete aside from the GMAT, then it's no problem. If you'll only be starting your applications after you take the GMAT, then it will be nearly impossible (especially if you have not contacted recommendors, ordered transcripts, etc).

As for your profile, I will have to be honest and say that it is very similar to other Indian Male IT applicants, and unfortunately, even with a 700 GMAT, HBS and GSB are not going to be realistic. Even LBS will be tough, but it's more reasonable. HEC and IE are possible if you raise your GMAT above a 700, but I would add some safer programs to the list. I would suggest looking at programs like Boston University, Georgetown, and other tier 2 programs if you're unable to significantly boost your GMAT. If you can boost your GMAT, you could look at programs like Kelley, Fischer, etc.

Hope that helps,
