Priya,

You have an excellent profile and lot of achievements to your credit. While your GPA appears to be slightly on lower side when compared to graduates from US and UK, it is definitely a competitive one in Indian context.

I know one student in SBIS - Oxford - 08 batch who joined the college with 700 in GMAT. You definitely hold good chances for this College. You stand a good chance in ISB as well.

Priya,

You have a very competitive GMAT score and a good range of extracurriculars. It's not clear how much leadership you have at work and your work experience is a bit low, especially for European schools, which place a premium on work experience compared to U.S. schools. So IMO London and INSEAD are definite longshots for you. More doable but still "reaches" are Oxford, JBS, HEC Paris, ISB, and IMD. Your chances at York, HEC Montreal, IE, NUS, HKUST, and ESADE look fair to decent to me. You will need to convince them why you can't wait to accumulate the kind of work experience they normally like to see.

Hope this helps,

spriya,

You're welcome. If you can, you may also want to work on your English writing skills. They are not as polished as they probably ought to be if you want to write effective essays for some of the more competitive programs.

Good luck,
