Hello sjaianand, thanks for your question.
Regarding your GMAT, the bar will be a bit higher for you, since come from an overrepresented demographic in the MBA applicant pool. I typically recommend clearing 700 overall and 80% on both sides on the GMAT, but if you really want to move the needle on this axis you’ll likely have to score even higher. I know that’s not fair, but it’s how the numbers play out. This definitely holds for elite programs like INSEAD and Kellogg.
Perhaps most important for you is why you want to go to business school, since you haven’t mentioned your post-MBA goals. I advise painting a picture that cohesively ties together your past, present, and future. Demonstrate to the admissions committees that your desired career path necessitates an MBA. Identify the specific gaps that stand between you and your short- and long-term goals (knowledge, skills, experiences, network, etc.) and show how business school would directly address those gaps.
Best of luck,
