I think you have overall a good profile. Thank yourself for that very nice GMAT which should make up somewhat for the less than stellar grades.

The one thing that I have doubts about regarding your profile is the wisdom of your career goal choice. I'll tell you why. When I was reading through your profile and read about your experience in publishing, my first thought was: that's great! Everybody in India is always coming from IT and wanting to go into finance, or coming from finance and wanting to stay into finance, and here is some guy who does something altogether different! How interesting! And then, in the goals you present you want to do what everybody else is doing :(...

Not that in itself it is a problem. I mean if you have dedicated your life to finance, why not continue in it? Sure, sure, even if it is a bit standard. However, presenting such goals when you have little to no experience in Finance does not make your career choice very plausible sounding either, nor is it allowing you to draw upon the strength of your experience. So my first recommendation would be to reconsider your goals: Maybe you can find a way to use that unique experience you and few others have to come up with a passionate and unique goal that is also credible and plausible??

Any thoughts???

Well if I was just interested in one thing, that would make life pretty boring yeah?

I see your thoughts about your career goal, and I understand your hesitation to present a goal in an industry in which few recruit from MBAs... But you need to find a goal where it does make sense and is desire in the industry, and even if there isn't a history of employers for the school, still you only need one right? ;) Plus, I think the advantage gained from having unique goals that are logical totally outweighs the consideration of their common recruiters.

One more thought: At this point in your life you don't have to KNOW for sure what you will actually do (anyway B-school will change that), what you DO have to know is what you are going to write in your essays... And what you actually do and what you write don't have to be the same things.
