Gaurava,

I think you should aim for a 720 minimum for the top schools given your undergrad GPA and the fact that you are, I assume, an Indian IT consultant, a profile they see a lot of. You will need to do whatever you can to stand out. Leadership stories are important, but so are intensive community involvements (showing leadership, if possible), and even unusual hobbies and personal experiences.

In terms of choosing where to apply, based on the information you gave me the following schools are generally considered to be the "best" (ranking wise) for consulting and for marketing:

Management or Management Consulting:
--Harvard
--Kellogg
--Tuck
--Wharton
--Michigan

Marketing:
--Kellogg
--Michigan
--Harvard
--Duke
--Wharton

Hope this helps,

Gaurava,

Yes, I recommend that you target schools lower on the list. For management or management consulting consider UNC, CMU, Cornell, Texas, and Yale. For marketing consider UNC, Indiana, Texas, and Florida (Warrington).

Good luck!
