Impact of two year gap and Profile Evaluation [#permalink] New post 18 Sep 2011, 10:56
My Profile:
-hold undergrad and post grad (Electrical Engg) from IIT Madras
-GPA 3
-2.3 yrs experience in Deloitte Consulting (Telecom & technology vertical, Strategy & Operation)
-1.3 yrs experience in Telenor (A Multinational telecom player) as a business analyst to business head of two states
-5 months in a medium size mobile VAS player
-Just started with a similar sized company in online and mobile advertising space as a business analyst
- GMAT: 710 (M 50, V35, 5)
- Good amount of Extra curricular activities in college (College captain for music for 2 yrs, national social service for 2 yrs, Extra mural lecture coordinator etc) but not much work after the college
-Helped the company for campus recruitment
- Organizers (city chapter) for Global panIIT meet which happens once in a year in US or India in alternate years
-Strong academic performance throughout the school
-Took counseling sessions for poor kids (for short duration)

My questions
-I did my schooling from a small town and then prepared for my college for two years. How severally it will affect my application?
-I hope gap of 2-3 months gap between two jobs does not hurt ? Am I correct ?
-I am aiming college from 4th to 15th rank. How realistic is the aim?
- Any suggestions on the split of High/Medium/Low schools?
-I am thinking about targeting Cornell, Duke, Kellogg, Darden and Yale. Please comment on my chances there
-Coming from highly competitive Indian male engineer pool, should I apply to only 1 or 2 schools in R1 and then rewrite the GMAT before R2
- Though I was quite active in extra-curricular activities during my college days, but I have not done much since then (2007). Will the previous work will be counted or it's only the recent work that does?

Would be great if I could get some help.
